TELUS is making free public Wi-Fi available at more than 8,000 hotspots across B.C. and Alberta with approximately 1,800 hotspots in downtown Vancouver and nearly 4,000 across the Metro Vancouver area.

Unlike other Wi-Fi networks, TELUS’ free Wi-Fi is open to everyone and not just TELUS customers. TELUS smartphones will automatically establish a secure connection to the #TELUSdirect network when they are in range. Non-TELUS customers can connect to #TELUS through a simple splash page.

The Wi-Fi network integrates seamlessly with TELUS’ 4G wireless network, automatically shifting TELUS smartphone customers to Wi-Fi and helping them moderate their use of wireless data.

TELUS is working with thousands of businesses, including brands like 7-Eleven, Fountain Tire and Vancity credit union to provide public Wi-Fi at locations throughout B.C. and Alberta.

TELUS Wi-Fi is also available at many major sporting and entertainment venues, including BC Place, Science World,  the Richmond Olympic Oval; and throughout the Whistler village and ski resort. 

To make it easy for people to find a location that offers TELUS Wi-Fi, TELUS has launched the TELUS Wi-Fi app, which is available as a free download through iTunes, the Google Play store and online at
