Going With the Flow: Telus and FLO partner to expand connectivity across North America

Quebec City, Quebec — On October 31st, Telus and FLO—a leading North American electric vehicle charging network operator and smart charging solution provider—announced an agreement to bring Telus’ connection to FLO chargers. 

FLO currently has 1.5 million charging sessions coast-to-coast. Telus aims to support this network by aiding in the development of critical infrastructure for the adoption of electric vehicles and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. 

FLO will leverage Telus’ dedicated IoT network solutions and connectivity platforms in its public and commercial Level 2 and Direct Current Fast Chargers (DCFC) across North America. 

This tech partnership is expected to enhance reliability and uptime, as well as to increase operational efficiency by providing real-time visibility on at least 60,000 of FLO’s chargers in Canada and the United States—including the new FLO Ultra Fast Charger.

“This agreement underpins TELUS’ commitment to lead in sustainability, finding ways to use our world-leading connectivity and technology to drive environmental change, build intelligent cities and create a more sustainable future. This exciting step demonstrates how innovation and quick evolution in the EV space is providing a better experience for customers,” said Navin Arora, executive vice-president, TELUS and president, TELUS Business Solutions and TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods.

“FLO is focused on providing EV drivers the best charging experience,” said Louis Tremblay, FLO president and CEO. “TELUS will help FLO advance this mission by providing critical support to keep our chargers communicating with our network and maintaining FLO’s leading uptime of more than 98 per cent. We are thrilled that TELUS is supporting FLO in our work to help usher in a zero-emissions transportation future.”
