TELUS Link connects teams faster, in more places and on more devices

TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - TELUS Link, the next generation Push To Talk (PTT) service over TELUS' 4G HSPA and LTE networks as well as Wi-Fi, will be available to customers in mid-October. TELUS Link will provide instant 'walkie-talkie' voice communication with an individual or a team as well as standard wireless service, enabling members of a work team to connect in less than one second wherever they are. Customers can also roam in the U.S. and around the world with enhanced coverage via PTT over Wi-Fi.

"TELUS' constant innovation allows us to meet and exceed the extremely high standards our business customers have come to expect from our technology," said Jim Senko, vice-president of Small Business Solutions, TELUS. "TELUS Link is the natural evolution of our industry-leading Mike service and is Canada's only Push To Talk service available over Wi-Fi. With access to our blazing fast 4G LTE data speeds, TELUS Link customers will experience expanded services as well as a seamless transition to all major smartphone operating systems."

TELUS Link will allow people working for Canadian businesses in fields such as construction, transport, energy, utilities and manufacturing to connect quickly with individuals or large groups in less than one second on the TELUS 4G network, which now covers 97 per cent of Canada's population from coast-to-coast. It combines the best features of a walkie-talkie with the advantages of today's latest smartphones including extremely high speeds and bandwidth for data, excellent sound quality, and increased productivity advantages.

Compatible with smartphones on all major operating systems, TELUS Link can also be downloaded and used on rugged phones like the Samsung Galaxy Rugby LTE. In addition, TELUS' new ultra-rugged voice phone available this month, the Sonim XP5560, will soon be able to access the TELUS Link service.
