Ucluelet recently received support from Telus for their latest fibre optic internet connection, meaning that customers within Ucluelet can get internet speeds vastly exceeding what conventional copper cabling can provide.

Ucluelet’s cell phone coverage is the same as the rest of British Columbia, with four large wireless carriers who all provide both call and text functionality as well as mobile data.
