We are proud to announce that following a three-year negotiated request for proposals process, the Government of B.C. has awarded TELUS a 10-year telecommunications services contract. This contract, signed July 29, 2011, provides telecommunications and strategic services to government and its broader public sector partners.

Services included in the agreement are long distance, conferencing, voice, data, cellular and strategic services.  The customers represented are the core ministries of the government, the six B.C. health authorities, BC Hydro, WorkSafeBC, the Insurance Corporation of BC and BC Lottery Corporation.

Specific highlights of the new Connecting B.C. Program include:

  • Upgrading approximately 450 schools to high-speed fibre optic cables.
