Lifetimes of excited states in 118Te have been measured using the Doppler Shift Attenuation (DSA) and Recoil Distance (RD) methods in the 109Ag( 13C, p3n) reaction at a beam energy of 54 MeV. Lifetime values of the ground-state band levels with spins $I^{\pi} = 2^+\mbox{--}16^+$ have been obtained. The excitation energies and B(E2) values are interpreted in the framework of a version of IBFM ( $\chem{IBM + 2qp}$) with the maximum boson number exceeding its standard value. A satisfactory agreement with experimental level scheme and B(E2) values for the ground-state band is achieved.
