CityWest to Migrate Customers to Telus
Published on: 14th Dec 2013
Canadian regional telco CityWest has announced that it is to stop providing wireless services and will be transferring its customers to Telus.
CityWest wireless customers who switch to Telus will not pay any cancellation fees and can trade-in their current device for credit towards any new Telus smartphone.
Telus plans to open a temporary location in the CityWest building in downtown Prince Rupert, and anticipates opening a new stand-alone Telus storefront in early 2014.
"Partnering with Telus gives our wireless customers access to the best available technology today and to enhanced technology as it evolves in the future," said Don Holkestad, CityWest Chief Executive Officer. "Our customers have been waiting for access to the latest, most popular smartphones and Telus will give our customers the opportunity to purchase the hottest new devices. This partnership achieves the best outcome for our customers and the future of CityWest."
Telus already has an extensive wireless network in Prince Rupert, covering most of the city. Telus is also committed to expanding wireless coverage along the Highway 16 corridor in the coming years, and has connected more than 40 kilometers of the highway to wireless services over the last few months.
