Telus has highlighted that, in addition to offering the fastest internet connectivity, its PureFibre network also delivers sustainability benefits. The company explains that fiber optic technology consumes less energy for data transmission compared to traditional copper-based networks. This results in a reduced carbon footprint and decreased greenhouse gas emissions.
