TELUS to give $100 to the Chilliwack General Hospital Foundation for every new Optik TV customer

Chilliwack, B.C. – In support of TELUS' philosophy to “give where we live,” TELUS will donate $100 to the Chilliwack General Hospital Foundation for every new Optik TV customer in Chilliwack.

 

“I, along with all of the TELUS team members in Chilliwack, am so pleased to support the incredible work the Chilliwack General Hospital Foundation does in our community with a $100 gift on behalf of every new Optik TV customer,” said Lance MacDonald, TELUS director of Customer Solutions Delivery in Chilliwack. “TELUS team members are proud to enable important community infrastructure projects that benefit the communities where they live, work and serve, including projects that promote and sustain the health of their friends and neighbours.”

 

A new state of the art emergency department, laboratory and pediatrics unit are already up and running because of the Chilliwack General Hospital Foundation. The new Emergency Room triples the space to accommodate growth from 37,000 to 45,000 patient visits per year with special attention to child-safe and senior friendly areas. The main lobby and ambulatory care are currently under construction. The $30 million renovation project is totally locally funded by the Fraser Valley Regional District and a $5 million dollar community campaign.

 

“We are thrilled with the support of TELUS in our Campaign for Healthcare Excellence for the redevelopment of the Chilliwack General Hospital. Only with the support of companies such as TELUS is this project possible. Thanks to TELUS for caring, sharing and making a difference in our community,” said Etta Richmond, campaign chair.

 

This new Optik TV fundraising program begins today and will run for one full year.

 

TELUS recently began offering Optik TV, powered by award-winning Microsoft Mediaroom, which offers never before seen functionality, features and over 400 channels, including over 50 in High Definition (HD). Optik TV features the best PVR experience with PVR Anywhere, only from TELUS. Now, one PVR is all you need to watch and record your shows on any TV in your home with a digital box or Xbox, record up to three shows at once, or pause a program in one room and pick it up from the same spot in another room. Optik TV also offers Picture-in-Picture browsing, onscreen Call Display, HD Video On Demand and HD Pay Per View, so you can order movies and live events from the comfort of your couch.

 

Earlier this week TELUS customers became amongst the first in the world to be able to use their Xbox 360 as a digital television box for Optik TV. Also this week, TELUS introduced Remote Recording, allowing Optik TV customers to manage their PVR recordings from any Internet connection or iPhone.

TELUS to give $100 to the Zajac Ranch for Children's Raising Spirits campaign for every new Optik TV customer

Mission, B.C. – In support of TELUS' philosophy to “give where we live,” TELUS will donate $100 to the Zajac Ranch for Children's Raising Spirits campaign for every new Optik TV customer in Mission.

 

“TELUS believes in the importance of community. I, along with all of our team members in Mission, am so pleased to support the Zajac Ranch for Children with a gift of $100 in the name of every new Optik TV customer in the area,” said Lance MacDonald, TELUS director of Customer Solutions Delivery in Mission. “The Zajac Ranch is a place for children who would normally not get such a unique experience, to go, learn, play, and have fun. We at TELUS are proud to support such a project that benefits Mission, a community where we live, work and serve.”

 

Each year, the Zajac Ranch for Children hosts hundreds of children with serious and chronic illnesses and disabilities who might not otherwise have a chance to enjoy a summer camp experience. Some of the campers need dialysis, others have Autism and some have physical challenges that keep them at home while other kids are outside enjoying life. The Ranch gives young people with extraordinary needs a chance to make friends, to try new things and above all, to have fun.

 

“We are delighted to once again be working with TELUS to benefit The Zajac Ranch for Children. We are so excited and pleased that TELUS has thrown its support behind our "Raising Spirits" campaign,” said Carmen Zajac, president of the Zajac Ranch for Children. “Through our campaign thousands of children and their families will be given the gift of hope and an opportunity to do what all kids deserve and that is to just be kids and have fun. We couldn't do what we do were it not for generous philanthropic companies like TELUS. Thank you TELUS for stepping up and supporting our local communities!”

 

This new Optic TV fundraising program begins today and will run for one full year.

TELUS et Microsoft offrent une expérience de divertissement de premier ordre au moyen de la console Xbox 360

 

Vancouver (Colombie-Britannique) – À compter d'aujourd'hui, TELUS et Microsoft feront profiter les Canadiens d'une première en Amérique du Nord et leur permettront d'accéder directement au service Optik TV résidentiel de TELUS grâce à la console Xbox 360.

TELUS to increase Canada's fastest wireless data network speeds

First carrier in North America to test and begin deployment to support speeds of up to 42 Mb/s using HSPA+ Dual Cell technology

 

Vancouver, B.C. – TELUS today announced Canada's fastest* mobile network is about to get even faster. Using state-of-the-art HSPA+ Dual Cell technology, TELUS will increase its already ultra-fast 3G+ wireless data network access speeds to up to 42 Mb/s when commercial deployment is complete in Canadian cities and towns. TELUS is the only North American carrier to have successfully tested HSPA+ Dual Cell technology in its wireless labs and to announce deployment in its commercial network.

 

“Once again, the entire TELUS team is proud to be a leader in the deployment of the most advanced wireless technology to Canadians. With the roll out of this new technology, TELUS clients with ‘Dual Cell' capable devices will enjoy unprecedented download speeds that will support even faster wireless access to an online world that connects them with their families, social networking with friends, favourite entertainment and the freedom to meet their business needs when our clients are on the move,” said TELUS President and CEO Darren Entwistle. “Canadians are amongst the most sophisticated users of wireless data in the world, and TELUS is committed to meeting their growing needs with the best technology available anywhere.”

 

HSPA+ Dual Cell technology uses advanced multiplexing techniques to combine two wireless data carriers, operating at manufacturer-rated speeds of up to 21 Mb/s each, into a single carrier with manufacturer-rated downlink speeds up to 42 Mb/s. New HSPA+ Dual Cell compatible devices that will allow customers to take advantage of the new network capabilities are expected to be commercially available during the first quarter of 2011.

 

TELUS is one of only a few carriers in the world to announce HSPA+ Dual Cell deployment. Telstra in Australia is the only operator known to have deployed this capability in its network. The deployment of Dual Cell is consistent with TELUS' evolution towards Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, as the company continues to maximize the potential of HSPA+ as an interim step and ensure the most optimal future transition to LTE.

 

Laboratory testing of the TELUS HSPA+ Dual Cell technology was completed in TELUS' Canadian laboratories in early July.

 

By leveraging the investment TELUS has already made in its 3G+ network, the company is able to support the deployment of Dual Cell technology with a small investment that is well within TELUS' overall capital expenditure guidance for 2010.

 

*Comparing TELUS HSPA+ network service to Rogers HSPA+ network service, based on TELUS' tests of data throughput speeds in large Canadian urban centres. Internet access speed provided by the network operator may vary due to the device being used, network congestion, distance from the cell site, local conditions and other factors. Speed on the Internet is beyond the wireless network operator's control and may vary with your configuration, Internet traffic, website server and management policies, and other factors.

La technologie HSPA+ à deux canaux utilise des techniques de multiplexage complexes combinant deux canaux de fréquences d'une capacité de transmission de 21 Mbit/s chacun (selon les indications du fabricant) dans une seule voie dont la capacité de transmission descendante totale est de 42 Mbit/s. Les nouveaux appareils prenant en charge la technologie HSPA+ à deux canaux qui permettront aux clients de profiter de la capacité de transmission accrue du réseau seront offerts sur le marché à compter du premier trimestre 2011.

 

TELUS figure parmi les quelques rares fournisseurs à avoir déjà annoncé la mise en service de la technologie HSPA+ à deux canaux. Telstra en Australie est le seul fournisseur de services connu à avoir déjà déployé cette technologie sur son réseau. La mise en service de la technologie à deux canaux s'inscrit dans le passage de TELUS à la technologie LTE (Long Term Evolution). TELUS vise en effet à maximiser le potentiel de la technologie HSPA+ en vue d'assurer la transition la plus facile possible à la technologie LTE.

 

Les essais en laboratoire de la technologie HSPA+ à deux canaux ont été menés dans les laboratoires de TELUS au Canada au début juillet.

 

Grâce aux investissements qu'elle a déjà faits dans son réseau 3G+, TELUS sera en mesure de prendre en charge la technologie à deux canaux sur son réseau moyennant un investissement minime conforme aux principes directeurs pour les dépenses en immobilisations de 2010.

 

*En comparant le service du réseau HSPA+ de TELUS à celui du réseau HSPA+ de Rogers selon les vitesses de transmission de données testées par TELUS dans de grands centres urbains du pays. La vitesse d'accès à Internet fourni par l'opérateur de réseau est indépendante de la volonté du fournisseur de services mobiles et peut varier en fonction de la configuration du réseau, du trafic sur le réseau, du serveur et des politiques de gestion du site web, de l'appareil utilisé, de la congestion du réseau, de la distance par rapport au site cellulaire, des conditions locales et d'autres facteurs.

TELUS (T et T.A à la Bourse de Toronto; TU à la Bourse de New York) est l'une des plus importantes sociétés de télécommunications au Canada, grâce à des produits d'exploitation annuels de 9,6 milliards de dollars et à 11,9 millions de connexions clients, dont 6,6 millions d'abonnés des services mobiles, 3,9 millions de lignes d'accès au réseau filaire, 1,2 million d'abonnés des services Internet et 200 000 clients de TELUS TV.

TELUS procédera au rachat anticipé de ses billets à 8 % libellés en dollars américains échéant le 1er juin 2011

Vancouver, C.-B. – TELUS Corporation a annoncé aujourd'hui qu'elle compte procéder, le 2 septembre 2010, à un rachat partiel, soit 613 M$ US ou environ 45,024 %, de ses billets à 8 % (numéro CUSIP 87971MAC7) venant à échéance le 1er juin 2011 d'une valeur de 1,3615 G$ US en circulation. Le prix du rachat sera fondé sur le rendement ajusté d'une obligation du Trésor américain, conformément à ce que prévoit l'acte de fiducie en vertu duquel ces billets ont été émis en mai 2001. Les détenteurs des billets toucheront aussi l'intérêt couru jusqu'à la date de rachat.

 

Une fois le rachat effectué, la créance internationale (Global Debt Security) détenue par la Depository Trust Company (DTC) sera réduite d'environ 45,024 %, de sorte que le montant des billets en circulation passera à 748,5 M$ US. Conformément aux pratiques de la DTC aux tats-Unis en ce qui concerne le rachat anticipé partiel de titres de créance, chaque titre relevé devant faire l'objet d'un rachat sera sélectionné par loterie par la DTC.

 

TELUS financera ce rachat anticipé partiel avec le produit de sa récente émission de 1 G$ CA en billets de dix ans à 5,05 % ou à même les fonds disponibles en vertu de ses facilités de crédit existantes.

 

Le présent communiqué n'est diffusé qu'à titre de renseignement et ne constitue d'aucune façon une offre d'achat ou de vente ni la sollicitation d'une offre d'achat ou de vente de quelque titre que ce soit.

A Celebration of Giving honours Edmonton charities

More than 270 Edmonton charities to receive more than $1 million from TELUS and its team members

 

Edmonton, AB – Edmonton charities will be honoured this evening at the third annual TELUS Celebration of Giving. Tonight, we focus on the amazing people and their organizations who work tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of those in our community who need help the most.

 

TELUS and its team members will donate more than $1 million to more than 270 Edmonton charities this year through the TELUS Employee Charitable Giving program. The TELUS Employee Charitable Giving program matches team member contributions to eligible charities dollar for dollar.

 

Overall, TELUS will give more than $6.9 million to local charities and non-profit organizations in Edmonton in 2010 through the TELUS Edmonton Community Board, Employee Charitable Giving, TELUS Community Ambassadors, local corporate donations and sponsorships.

 

“TELUS has a promise, to give where we live, and our Celebration of Giving is one way we demonstrate how we fulfill that promise,” said Dr. Bob Westbury, Chair of the TELUS Edmonton Community Board. “The Celebration of Giving really gives us the chance to show our charity partners here in Edmonton that what they are doing makes a difference. Their commitment to making Edmonton a better community for us all has not gone unnoticed and it is greatly appreciated and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.”

 

Nearly 20 local charities in attendance, including Special Olympics Edmonton, the Youth Emergency Shelter Society, and the Edmonton Humane Society will be recognized for their vital contributions to the fabric of Edmonton. Not only will those charities be thanked publicly, they will be presented with cheques from the TELUS family of team members, Community Ambassadors and TELUS Edmonton Community Board members symbolizing their commitment to the community.

 

Through TELUS Employee Charitable Giving, TELUS team members and retirees can choose to make a donation through payroll and pension deduction at TELUS to 48,000 eligible registered Canadian charities. TELUS then matches donations to these charities dollar for dollar. In 2009, TELUS employees and retirees donated $7.1 million to more than 2900 charities across Canada.

TELUS supports the community with Pride

Vancouver Pride Society announces sponsorships and donation from TELUS

 

Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Pride Society is pleased to announce TELUS as a gold level sponsor of the 2010 Vancouver Pride Parade and Festival, Vancouver's premier celebration of diversity. As title sponsor of the Davie Street Dance Party, TELUS will help kick-off Pride Week on July 30 in the heart of the West End.

 

“The Vancouver Pride Parade and Festival inspires and empowers Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) communities worldwide, in countries where many members must continue to fight for their human rights,” says Ken Coolen, president of the Vancouver Pride Society. “More than 600,000 members and supporters of the LGBT community participated in last year's parade, and without the support of sponsors like TELUS, first-class events that the Vancouver Pride Parade and Festival has become known for would not be possible.”

 

Understanding that to do well in business a company must do good in the community, TELUS has contributed over $950,000 to LGBT organizations throughout Canada since 2000.

 

“At TELUS we value the diversity of our team members and our customers,” says Jill Schnarr, vice-president, TELUS Community Affairs. “We are also proud to give where we live. In addition to our involvement with Pride Week events, TELUS will be donating $100 to the Vancouver Pride Society for each new Optik TV subscriber in Vancouver who signs up between July 30 and August 6.”

 

TELUS has demonstrated support for the LGBT community beyond corporate giving initiatives. In April 2010, the company was recognized as one of the Canada's Best Diversity Employers, for the second year in a row. Through the creation of Spectrum, an employee resource group for LGBT team members, and a partnership with Pride@Work, TELUS strives to deliver on its promise of being a company where all individuals are treated with dignity and respect.

 

The Vancouver Pride Parade and Festival begins at noon on Sunday, August 1st at Robson and Thurlow and finishes at the Sunset Beach Festival Site. For more information on Vancouver Pride Week, visit vancouverpride.ca.

 

To order TELUS TV and support the Vancouver Pride Society visit telus.com/tv or call 310-MYTV (6988) between July 30 and August 6.

$2.5 million TELUS investment expands wireless service in Fort Chipewyan

Fort McMurray, AB – TELUS put the finishing touches on a $2.5 million cell tower project in Fort Chipewyan to enhance its wireless service in the area.

 

The investment provides access to TELUS' new 3G+ wireless network and improved performance, giving TELUS customers more access to mobile broadband for cell phones and laptops for high speed downloading on-the-go.

 

“The launch of this tower in Fort Chipewyan is part of TELUS' continued investment in Alberta communities to provide state-of-the-art technology and communications services,” said Derek Keturakis, TELUS general manager Alberta North. “TELUS is dedicated to bringing all our customers, including those who live and work in the far reaches of the province, the best possible mobile service. We know how important wireless services are, and we are investing billions of dollars in bringing it to our customers across Canada.”

 

Customers in Fort Chipewyan now have access to three great wireless technologies offered by TELUS – 3G+ (HSPA+), 3G (CDMA) and Push to Talk services with Mike (iDEN).

 

“Not only does this investment from TELUS give customers the convenience of making wireless calls from their homes and throughout the area, it expands their access to 911 and gives them great broadband service where it may not be possible to build wired Internet access,” added Keturakis.

 

This project is part of the $650 million TELUS is investing in wireless and wired infrastructure in Alberta in 2010 as it continues extending the reach and speed of its advanced wireline and wireless broadband services to more Albertans.

TELUS supports local B.C. communities with $10 million in contributions across the province this year

TELUS, its customers, team members and retirees give where they live

 

Vancouver, B.C. – Today, TELUS employees are celebrating their commitment to our B.C. communities by announcing more than $10 million in charitable contributions and community building initiatives across the province this year.

 

The funds are a combination of TELUS community programs, including the Go Pink campaign for digital mammography equipment at BC Women's Hospital, support of Jeneece Place, TELUS Employee Charitable Giving, TELUS Community Boards, TELUS Community Action Teams, TELUS Community Ambassadors and local community partnerships, to name a few.

 

Since 2000, TELUS, its team members and retirees have supported worthwhile causes in B.C. to the tune of $80 million and 2 million hours of volunteer service.

 

“TELUS employees believe in the importance of community and as we move through the summer months spending time with friends and family, we want to take this time to reflect on the meaning of our long-standing promise to give where we live,” said Darren Entwistle, TELUS President and CEO. “From our $1 million to help build Jeneece Place, which will make life easier for families during very challenging times in their lives, to our Go Pink campaign in support of BC Women's Hospital's goal to purchase three digital mammography machines, we have been able to truly make a difference throughout British Columbia. I am grateful for our customers' support and proud of the entire TELUS team who remain steadfast in their commitment to the communities where they live, work and serve.”

 

This spring, TELUS announced $100 will be donated to local charities and worthy causes for every new Optik TV customer on Vancouver Island, on the Sunshine Coast and in Powell River, Prince George, Kamloops, Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton. The campaign will run for one full year from the dates of announcements in these communities. So far, these campaigns have raised $1.3 million for local community initiatives.

 

It's time to Go Pink. In May, TELUS launched a milestone campaign to make a ‘pink' difference and bring digital mammography to B.C. Between May 6 and October 31, 2010, TELUS will donate $25 to BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre Foundation for each purchase of a pink BlackBerry Curve 8530 or pink BlackBerry Pearl 3G smartphone available only at TELUS. Digital mammography will enhance early detection of breast cancer for women and men in B.C. To date, this campaign has raised more than $58,000 for new digital mammography equipment.

 

TELUS started its fundraising efforts for Jeneece Place last July, when Mr. Entwistle announced the 2010 TELUS World Skins Game would be held at Bear Mountain. Mr. Entwistle also announced that the Queen Alexandra Foundation for Children would be the charity supported by the game, with all funds raised going towards Jeneece Place. He kicked off the campaign with a $100,000 donation. The $1 million for Jeneece Place was announced at the closing of the 2010 TELUS World Skins Game on June 22.

I, along with all of our team members in Abbotsford, am so pleased to support the Abbotsford Hospice Society's "Help Us Light the Way" Capital Campaign with a gift of $100 in the name of every new Optik TV customer in the area. This important campaign will help those who are in need of support and care, as well as assist their deserving families,” said Lance MacDonald, TELUS director of Customer Solutions Delivery in Abbotsford.

 

AHS has been serving their community for 24 years, providing support to adults, 19 and over, who are living with a terminal or life threatening illness, as well as comforting children, teens and families on their very personal journey of grief and loss. The Society launched the “Help Us Light the Way” campaign in March 2010 to raise funds to build a facility for the Resource and Support Center and ultimately a residential hospice for persons age 19 and older. The new facility will form part of an innovative partnership between the Abbotsford Hospice Society, Canuck Place Children's Hospice and Matthew's House children's respite centre to create a one of a kind Campus of Care in Abbotsford.

 

“Our capital campaign to raise $7 million is gaining momentum and we are once again reminded that there is no greater resource than the strength and compassion of people,” said Debbie Lehmann, Abbotsford Hospice Society Executive Director. “While AHS has spent 24 years helping people who are dying and providing support for their families, it is crucial that we build the 10 suite facility to meet the needs of patients and families on an around the clock basis. I look forward to the great accomplishments that we can all make together for those in our community who are in need of the many critical services we offer. Thank you TELUS for recognizing the importance of community and for Helping us Light the Way.”

 

This new Optik TV fundraising program begins today and will run for one full year.

 

TELUS recently began offering Optik TV, powered by award-winning Microsoft Mediaroom, which offers never before seen functionality, features and over 400 channels, including over 50 in High Definition (HD). Optik TV features the best PVR experience with PVR Anywhere, only from TELUS. Now, one PVR is all you need to watch and record your shows on any TV in your home with a digital box or Xbox, record up to three shows at once, or pause a program in one room and pick it up from the same spot in another room. Optik TV also offers Picture-in-Picture browsing, onscreen Call Display, HD Video On Demand and HD Pay Per View, so you can order movies and live events from the comfort of your couch.

 

Earlier this week TELUS customers became amongst the first in the world to be able to use their Xbox 360 as a digital television box for Optik TV. Also this week, TELUS introduced Remote
Recording, allowing Optik TV customers to manage their PVR recordings from any Internet connection or iPhone.

 

The offer also applies to new TELUS Satellite TV customers beginning today and running for one year. TELUS began offering TELUS Satellite TV in June 2009. TELUS Satellite TV service complements TELUS' Optik TV service by expanding the availability of TELUS home bundles including TV, Home Phone and High Speed Internet to more than 90 per cent of households across British Columbia and Alberta.

Homeless and at-risk youth win at golf tournament

Edmonton, AB - While an impressive $250,000 purse is up for grabs at the ATB Financial Classic presented by TELUS golf tournament, local homeless and at-risk youth will be the real winners.

 

Both tournament sponsors ATB and TELUS have pledged to donate a minimum of $25,000 – each - to Edmonton's Youth Emergency Shelter Society (YESS), which has provided programs and services to homeless and at-risk youth for the past 29 years. Sue Keating, acting executive director at YESS, will be on hand to accept the cheque when the tournament wraps up on Sunday, July 4, at the Edmonton Golf and Country Club.

 

“Using this outstanding golf tournament as a way to support YESS and the young people we serve clearly highlights the dedication both ATB and TELUS have to the communities where they do business. We've already decided how to allocate the money,” says Keating. “The $25,000 contribution from TELUS will be used for a long-overdue renovation of the reception area at our Whyte Avenue – the door most of our clients first walk through when they simply can't face another day or night on the streets. And the $25,000 from ATB Financial will go toward a passenger van that will enable us to get the kids from one place to another safely.” The van will be especially useful in transporting young people between the Whyte Avenue location and the Armoury Youth Centre, where they can access daytime programming and support.

 

The success of each player competing at the ATB Financial Classic presented by TELUS will work to the advantage of YESS. TELUS will award $50 for every eagle and $10 for every birdie the players make throughout the tournament, with a minimum $25,000 donation .

 

“TELUS is proud to support YESS and the vital work they do to assist the youth, our future leaders, in our community,” says Joanne Beaton, vice-president of TELUS National Operations. “At TELUS we give where we live, and we are committed to building stronger communities. Through this $25,000 donation to YESS from TELUS we are delivering on that commitment.”

 

“A welcoming door off the streets and safe transportation are tremendously important to kids who are alone, afraid, and running out of hope,” says Keating. “Equally important, though, is the underlying message that the community truly cares about these kids, and supports their efforts to regain control of their lives, which have often been marked by abuse and neglect.”

 

TELUS and its team members take great pride in its contributions to charitable and community organizations in Alberta. In just 10 years from 2000 to the end of 2010, TELUS will have contributed $70 million and 1 million volunteer hours in this province. In April, TELUS was named the 2010 Most Outstanding Philanthropic Corporation in the World by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, becoming the first Canadian company to ever receive this prestigious international recognition.

« Le Terminal intelligent de TELUS s'avère une excellente solution pour les entreprises, notamment celles qui souhaitent obtenir rapidement une connectivité de données et de la voix ou qui doivent soutenir des emplacements temporaires, comme ceux que l'on retrouve sur des chantiers de construction ou des sites clients dans lesquels vont travailler des professionnels à distance. », affirme Jim Senko, vice-président, marketing PME, à TELUS.
