"We all know what it feels like to have that one spot in our home where the Wi-Fi connection just isn't as strong, and the frustration that can cause ourselves and our families. We're alleviating that pain point by providing whole-home coverage, all while delivering a more responsive gaming experience for players, extending the battery life of our connected devices, enhancing network security, and offering our customers a dedicated support line - an industry first. Our advancements in Wi-Fi will ultimately give our customers peace of mind so that they never have to worry about the reliability, safety, coverage, or speed of every connected device and their household Wi-Fi connection again."
With Wi-Fi Plus, customers can be assured that their Wi-Fi network will work optimally in every corner of the home, and that they have ongoing support at their fingertips.
When subscribers sign up for Wi-Fi Plus, TELUS says its technicians will perform a customized installation experience to best determine the optimal number and location of access points throughout the home to ensure a strong and reliable Wi-Fi connection, and they offer access to a dedicated group of experts that can be booked whenever it's most convenient for the customer.
Additionally, Wi-Fi Plus delivers network security so that every connected device in the home is protected from malicious content and hackers.
TELUS Wi-Fi 6 access point was designed to look great in any space, receiving a Red Dot Design Award for its sleek aesthetics, and gives their customers the next-generation source for the fastest Wi-Fi1 experience.
This ultra-fast connection is backed by their PureFibre Network , enabling the company to seamlessly increase bandwidth and capacity to deliver the fastest Internet and Wi-Fi speeds to TELUS PureFibre customers. Wi-Fi 6 reduces lag during video conferencing when working from home, offers a more responsive gaming experience for players, extends the battery life of connected devices, improves wireless network security, and enables faster speeds for everyone at home -- even when multiple devices are connected.
