TELUS named Toronto's best cellphone provider by NOW Magazine readers

TORONTO, Nov. 3, 2011 /CNW/ - TELUS team members today are thanking Torontonians for the special recognition of Toronto's best cellphone provider in this year's "Best of Toronto" special edition of NOW Magazine.

"From all of us at TELUS, thank you Toronto. At TELUS, being a leading telecommunication company means more than offering the best products, services and the most advanced technology. It means putting the needs of our customers first," said Joe Natale, Chief Commercial Officer, TELUS. "We are inspired by the feedback we receive and are committed to driving innovative changes that make our wireless experience friendlier for Torontonians and all Canadians."

TELUS was also voted Calgary's best cellphone service in the Calgary Herald Readers' Choice Awards last week.

TELUS and its team members are committed to delivering a transparent, fair and reliable customer experience by continuing to make friendly changes to services and rate plans. TELUS has launched a series of Clear and Simple initiatives including:

  • Clear Choice rate plans with no system access and carrier 911 fees
  • Free SMS data usage notifications
  • Device unlocking services
  • International roaming rates that have been reduced by up to 60 per cent and are available without a complex travel pass
  • Redefined device ownership terms that makes it easy to upgrade to the latest and greatest smartphones anytime.

TELUS' success goes hand-in-hand with the health and well being of the communities where we live, work and serve. More than 7,800 TELUS team members call Toronto home. Since 2000, TELUS has invested $20 billion in technology and operations in Ontario. In that time, TELUS and its team members have contributed more than $33 million and volunteered 194,000 hours of service to a variety of charities, organizations and local partnerships in Toronto and across Ontario.
