Telus has the fastest 4G LTE speeds in the country, beating out Rogers and Bell, according to a report from OpenSignal.

OpenSignal analyzed nearly 678 million measurements, collected from 31,762 devices between April 1 and to June 29, 2018, to compare the 3G and 4G results of Canada’s three nationwide operators.

According to OpenSignal’s August update, Telus’s 4G download speeds clocked in at around 51.05 mbps—the first Canadian operator to pass the 50 mbps threshold in their national metrics.
