Telus Communications Company has expanded its HSPA+ dual cell wireless network throughout much of Atlantic Canada, the company announced Thursday. Telus customers in major cities such as Moncton, Charlottetown, Halifax and St. John’s can now access the upgraded network, the company said in a release. Like the company's dual cell HSPA+ network elsewhere in Canada, the upgraded Atlantic Canada system will offer theoretical download speeds of up to 42 Mbps with an expected average of 7-14 Mbps. Online coverage maps on the company’s website show wide HSPA+ coverage throughout New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and along the coastal areas of Newfoundland, but limited coverage in Labrador. Telus said its HSPA+ network is now available to 70 per cent of Canadians across the country.
