Liens coming off St. Albert homes after resolution of Telus contractor dispute

  Liens coming off St. Albert homes after resolution of Telus contractor dispute St. Albert homeowners who were unwittingly dragged into a dispute involving Telus contractor Ledcor and its subcontractor will have the liens removed from their homes by Thursday. "The liens are in process of being removed," Copperline Excavating president Jamie Black said in a written statement to CBC News Wednesday.  "Ledcor and Copperline have resolved this matter."Telus is upgrading its fibre optic service across the province. The work in St. Albert was contracted to Ledcor, which subcontracted work to Copperline Excavating, a Spruce Grove company.

Telecommunications company Telus Corp. says it is planning to roll out its 5G network in the near future using some technology from Chinese component maker Huawei.

CFO Doug French told The Financial Post newspaper in an interview as the company posted quarterly results on Thursday that the telecommunications provider is moving ahead with plans to build its next-generation 5G network by the end of the year, and will do so using some components supplied by Huawei, the Chinese company that has been criticized by numerous countries in recent years over allegations that its components make networks vulnerable to spying by Beijing or others.

Canadian governments give Huawei millions in funding while debate rages over its 5G role

A limited rollout of the service began in select cities in 2018, and 5 G started appearing in cities around the U.S. in 2019, with much more comprehensive Over the next several years, Verizon will build out its 5 G network around the country using small cells, and will eventually deploy service on a mid- and

On Thursday, the U.S. government slapped new charges against Huawei, alleging, among other things, it violated international sanctions by doing business with North Korea.

In a statement to CBC News, Telus says it is looking to diversify its suppliers as it builds up its network, but at launch the 5G backbone will be built on Huawei components. "Telus will begin rolling out its 5G network shortly, and our initial module will be with Huawei," French said.

Huawei components are already deployed on Telus's existing networks, so the company says it makes sense to use them as the telcos roll out 5G, a new wireless standard that will allow for more internet-connected devices to transmit far more data than before, and quickly — up to 100 times faster than existing networks.

Canada and China both 'furious' in row triggered by Huawei arrest: Canadian envoy

Telus Corp says 5 G rollout would be more expensive and take longer if the government doesn't allow Huawei equipment. Canadian Telecom Telus Corporation (TSE:T) in their Q4 results noted that banning Huawei equipment would affect not only the cost of 5 G rollout but the timing of it as well.

Huawei is one of the biggest telecommunications equipment manufacturers in the world, but the company has become embroiled in controversy as the U.S. government has accused it of stealing state secrets, fraud and other offences. Huawei's former CFO, Meng Wangzhou, has been on house arrest in the Vancouver area for more than a year at the request of U.S. authorities.

Numerous countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan and the U.S. have banned Huawei and other Chinese firms from being involved in building 5G networks. Canada has allowed Huawei to be involved in 3G and 4G networks for more than a decade but has thus far declined to decide one way or the other on Huawei's eligibility to be involved the next generation.

Telus says the Huawei portion of their network is limited to "non-sensitive" radio access portions of the network — essentially the antennas and some otherthings installed at cell towers.

Telus says it will always remain "entirely compliant with current Canadian regulatory and cybersecurity requirements, which have been in place and approved by successive federal governments for more than a decade," French's statement said.

Telus's rivals are also moving ahead with their 5G plans, but have been much more coy on the subject of using Huawei. Rogers has chosen its longtime supplier Ericsson — a Swedish company — and Bell has said its first contracts for radio access equipment are with Nokia of Finland, although it left open the possibility of choosing other vendors as well.

Quebecor's Videotron has opted to go with Samsung for its 5G radio access equipment.

At the moment, 5G networks are largely theoretical, as few consumer devices are configured to run on them yet. But that will change. A major hurdle in the 5G rollout is a lack of appropriate usable wireless spectrum, something which should be addressed by the upcoming 3500 MHz spectrum auction, slated for later this year.

Even before that happens, Telus is moving ahead with its plans. "We are a global leader in wireless technology and we intend to retain that distinction," French said.

"In the meantime, we look forward to the release of the government's auction framework for the 3500 MHz band, which needs to be auctioned as soon as possible to support a timely 5G rollout and keep us competitive with other leading countries and their economies."
