I watched the video and am intrigued. Can you run an app called coverage map(also known as root metrics) It gives a better description of the connection during a speed test.

Link to the app.

Do you have a Nexus 4 that you can see if you get these speeds on Telus?

Edit: Or an HSPA+ 42mbps capable device

"According to Qualcomm's data sheet the MDM9215 is an LTE modem (LTE FDD/TDD CAT 3, SVLTE-DB, Release 9 DC-HSPA+, TD-SCDMA, GSM/GPRS/EDGE, EGAL"). All the MDM92xx and MDM96xx Gobi chips have LTE. In fact, the MDM9215m specifically is the same modem used in the One X- which clearly does have LTE. What is more commonly claimed is that the Nexus 4 lacks an LTE amplifier. Yet Avago Technologies states that their ACPM-7251 amp supports "UMTS Dual-Band (Band1-UMTS & LTE and Band5 UMTS & LTE)". Again, a chip also used in the One X . Also present are Avago A5702 and A5704 LTE/UMTS power amps."

Telus is rated for DC-HSPA. This is all this is.

The N4, can be changed to "LTE/GSM" and stick until a reboot on *#*#4636#*#* menu. I get increased speeds when testing it too! Something is working with the LTE chip.
