TELUS Corp. (NYSE: TU) reported Q3 EPS of $0.56, $0.02 better than the analyst estimate of $0.54. Revenue for the quarter came in at $2.87 billion versus the consensus estimate of $2.9 billion.

TELUS attracted 115,000 net new customer connections in the quarter, including 106,000 postpaid wireless customers, 34,000 TV subscribers and 19,000 high-speed Internet customers. The growth in TELUS' wireless customer base was supported by an 11 basis point year-over-year decline in monthly postpaid subscriber churn to just 0.99 per cent - the lowest level in over six years. This growth was partially offset by the modest loss of prepaid wireless customers and a continued decline in legacy wireline services. TELUS' total wireless customer base of 7.8 million is up over three per cent year-over-year, while the TELUS TV subscriber base of 776,000 is up 22 per cent and high-speed Internet connections are up more than five per cent to 1.37 million.
