Canada’s Telus beats rivals with profit, revenue growth

TORONTO, Feb 13 (Reuters) – Telus Corp, one of
Canada’s biggest telecom companies, outpaced its main rivals
with a 13-percent jump in fourth-quarter profit and ambitious
targets for 2014, helped by expansion in both its wireless and
fixed-line businesses.

Its shares advanced more than 1 percent on Thursday as
investors cheered higher bills and more customers in wireless
and an Internet-fueled recovery in the landline segment.
