TELUS has arrived in Northern Canada. Customers in the Northwest Territories and Yukon will now be able to sign up for TELUS wireless products and services, including SharePlus plans with unlimited nationwide talk and text and shared data at the same price offered anywhere else in Canada. Local residents can take advantage of blazing fast wireless Internet speeds when surfing the web, reading emails or accessing the latest chart-topping music and social media through TELUS 4G and 4G LTE technology.
TELUS is tremendously proud to offer its full suite of wireless products and services to residents of the Northwest Territories and Yukon. For the very first time, starting September 6, you will be able to purchase a smartphone or other device from TELUS and activate a local Yellowknife or Whitehorse phone number, said Darren Entwistle, TELUS President and CEO. At TELUS, we're on a mission to lead the world in customer service reflecting our passion for excellence in caring for our clients. We are committed to bringing all Canadians, whether urban or rural, in the spectacular north and from coast to coast, our world-class network and broad range of the latest smartphones and devices. We look forward to serving even more communities across Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut as TELUS 4G and 4G LTE coverage expands.
TELUS is proud to be a part of the Northern Canadian community. In celebration of today s launch, for every TELUS customer in the Northwest Territories who purchases a new smartphone and activates a Yellowknife phone number, TELUS will contribute $25 to the Stanton Territorial Hospital Foundation in Yellowknife. Funds raised will go toward the purchase of new equipment for the Obstetrics Unit. In the Yukon, $25 from every Whitehorse phone number activation will support new technology to aid in the early detection of developmental disabilities at Yukon Child Development Centre. Both of these TELUS Phones for Good campaigns will run September 6, 2013 to May 6, 2014, contributing up to a maximum of $25,000 for each charity.
"With patients from all 33 communities across the Northwest Territories, plus the Kitikmeot region of Nunavut the largest geographic area in Canada the Obstetrics Unit at the Stanton Territorial Hospital helps deliver more than 600 babies a year, said Rebecca Alty, Executive Director of the Stanton Territorial Hospital Foundation. To maintain the excellent level of care we provide to patients, the Hospital needs constant upgrades and it s through generous partners like TELUS that we can accomplish this. We re incredibly grateful for their support.
Customers in the Northwest Territories and Yukon will be able to sign up for TELUS services starting September 6, but this is only the beginning of TELUS continued expansion into Canada s north.
