Telus Corp. has announced the merger of the wireless and wireline segments of its business into a single operating structure.

The company said the change positions it to leverage the ongoing convergence between wireless and wireline technology.

Telus Mobility and Telus Communications will merge into one structure that incorporates Telus’ customer facing business units, technology infrastructure and operations and shared services.

“The merger is consistent with the advancement of (our) national growth strategy, focused on data and wireless, that we established five years ago,” said Darren Entwistle, Telus’ president and CEO.

George Cope, former head of Telus Mobility, left the company last month to become chief operating officer of Bell Canada.
