    True. BC Tel, AGT (itself a conglomeration), QuebecTel and several smaller entities. However, BC Tel made up 64% of the new Telus.

    I thought AGT bought Ed Tel then renamed to TELUS. Once they merged with BC tel the new company was temporarily called BCT.Telus. Finally they renamed the entire enterprise TELUS.

    We should change Wikipedia so that we are both correct...

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albe...ent_Telephones

    But I think you are more correct than I.
