Canadian carrier Telus will launch its LTE network across several provinces on Friday. The network will supplement its current HSPA+ network and should reach 25 million customers by the end of 2012. A handful of new LTE devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab and LG Optimus, will be available starting February 10; the Galaxy Note will be coming a few days later.

Telus expects its network to reach average speeds of 12 to 25Mbps, with a theoretical limit of 75Mbps. That's about average for Canada's LTE networks, although Rogers offers a couple of devices that can connect at (theoretically) faster speeds. Telus is behind Rogers and Bell on its LTE launch, but looks like it's hoping to draw people in by offering LTE at the same price as its other data plans. Initial launch areas will include Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Québec City; you'll be able to get more information by visiting Telus' LTE site on Friday.
