Telus Communications Inc. has announced a 2009 capital plan investing more than $300 million focused primarily on advanced wireless and wireline broadband infrastructure in Ontario. The investment is expected to result in an estimated 900 jobs.

Since 2000, the company has made nearly $13 billion in capital and operating expenditures in the province.

Work is currently underway to build a new wireless broadband network based on the latest version of High Speed Packet Access (HSPA), in Ontario and nationally by early 2010.

According to Telus, this investment is expected to ensure an optimal future transition to long term evolution (LTE) technology, the emerging worldwide standard for fourth generation or 4G networks.
