Bell reaches 120 more LTE communities

26 Feb 2015

Bell Canada yesterday announced that 120 more small communities across Quebec and Ontario have joined Bell Mobility’s 4G LTE mobile broadband network. Employing new 700MHz bandwidth (which first went commercial last April) and other spectrum assets, Bell is expanding LTE services to small towns, rural communities and remote locations in every region of Canada including the North. Bell earlier announced the launch of 4G LTE service in 52 small communities across all four provinces in Atlantic Canada and will make further LTE rollout announcements in 2015. Bell’s LTE footprint already covers 86% of the national population and the company plans to bring the network to more than 98% of Canadians this year with its ongoing expansion to smaller communities.
