That's a good question.
There are many factors that are taken into consideration when and where Telus can provide Optik TV.
These factors include first and foremost the technology, availability of the current infastructure, population, geography, etc...
But don't worry, if Optik TV is not available in your area yet, you can also take advantage of Telus Satellite TV, it's a great product that will complement any other Telus services you have may now.
Hope this helps.
Telus is currently doing a major fibre to the home(FTTH) upgrade to the Calgary area. North of the river from the city center.
Telus doesn't publish what their future plans are beyond a certain time frame. Maybe you'll have the nice fortune in the next couple of years and get fibre to the home.
Telus service qualifications tool. You might be in one of the holes that is serviced by either older equipment or a longer run of copper.
