TELUS will be investing nearly $33 million in Montreal in 2024 as it deploys and updates its 5G networks and connects businesses to thousands of kilometres of optic fibre. As part of its multi-year sponsorship agreement with CF Montréal, TELUS will invest $1.2 million to improve wireless connectivity at Stade Saputo. This major TELUS investment will give fans dedicated access to the 5G network for fast and reliable communications during games.

As part of its second year of its partnership with CF Montréal, TELUS launches the "TELUS Fan Cam" enabling spectators to take pictures of themselves in the stands with the eight 4K cameras installed throughout the Stade Saputo. Simply by entering their seat number in the app on their smartphone, fans can then frame and personalize their souvenir picture. TELUS' enhanced network makes this experience more efficient and enjoyable than ever.

TELUS is investing $33 million in Montreal this year to provide world-class connectivity to the many multiple festivals and events at Parc Jean-Drapeau. TELUS is also continuing its partnership with Zú, a Montreal hub established by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté to let entrepreneurs draw on technology to develop products that transform creative industries. Among other activities, the company is participating in the first quantum communications testbed in Canada in conjunction with Numana, a technology think tank.

By establishing this innovation hub, TELUS is bringing companies and researchers together to help improve the security of computer communications. TELUS plans to invest $73 billion in Canada by 2028, including $10 billion in the Quebec economy, for its infrastructure, operations and spectrum licensing and to improve the coverage, speed and reliability of its world-class networks. In addition to its investments in its networks, the TELUS team is driven by a desire to bring positive social changes to the communities where it operates.

Since 2000, TELUS and its active and retired team members in Quebec have volunteered 1.6 million hours and contributed more than $95 million in cash, in-kind contributions, time and programs to local organizations like the Parrainage civique de Vaudreuil Soulanges, Les Impatients and The Fairy Godmothers. TELUS and the Old Brewery Mission recently celebrated the first anniversary of operations of the Health for Good mobile health clinic, which helps marginalized people in Montreal by providing free health services, social support and housing assistance. Since the mobile clinic first launched in April 2023, over 3,200 consultations have been provided for marginalized Montrealers.

The investments announced in this news release reflect TELUS' overall capital expenditure guidance for 2024, which was released on February 9, 2024 during the company's fourth financial quarter of 2023.
