4G LTE network speeds up to 45%, giving customers even faster mobile access to 
the Internet and apps like mobile TV on Canada's largest LTE network.

"Bell is committed to bringing the world's best wireless communications

significantly faster mobile data speeds in more places." said Wade Oosterman, 
President of Bell Mobility. "More than 4 in 5 Canadians can now access Bell's

average 12-25 Mbps) to 110 Mbps (14-36 Mbps), with speed as high as 150 Mbps 
(18-40 Mbps) available in some locations.

Since 2006, Bell has invested approximately $7 billion to acquire mobile 4G 
spectrum and build advanced wireless networks in every region of Canada. As a 
result, Canadians are rapidly adopting smartphones and becoming world leaders 
in usage of services like mobile video. Bell Mobile TV has grown to become 
Canada's leading mobile video service with more than 1.5 million subscribers 
across the country.

Bell plans to grow 4G LTE coverage from 82% of the national population to more 
than 98% with service rollouts to small towns, rural locations and Canada's 
North over the next 15 months. The company has already announced its LTE plans 
for rural Atlantic Canada (52 new locations this year and more than 100 by the 
end of 2015), and will continue to announce new coverage locations in regions 
across Canada in coming months.
