Bell Mobility Expands 4G LTE Wireless Service to Small Communities Across Canada

Bell has announced the joining of 120 additional small communities across Quebec and Ontario to Bell Mobility's 4G LTE wireless network. Employing new 700 MHz bandwidth and other spectrum assets, Bell is expanding Fourth Generation (4G) 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 4 provinces in Atlantic Canada and will make further LTE rollout announcements in 2015.

Bell Mobility Launches 4G Wireless Service in Gameti, Nahanni Butte, Paulatuk and Ulukhaktok

Bell Mobility announced the launch of 4G wireless service in the Northwest Territories communities of Gameti, Nahanni Butte, Paulatuk and Ulukhaktok. Residents in these communities will now be able to call, text, browse, and watch video using the latest wireless devices, handsets, tablets and smartphones on the Bell network. This innovative upgrade was completed in partnership with Falcon Communications and is part of Northwestel's Modernization Plan. The federal government is contributing a total of approximately $700,000 to the 4G projects in Gameti, Nahanni Butte, Paulatuk and Ulukhaktok through Falcon Communications. This contribution accounts for approximately one half of total eligible project costs. These projects represent a small portion of the projects being funded through the Government of Canada for enhanced broadband Internet service in the Northwest Territories. Overall, the federal government is contributing up to $14.8 million towards similar broadband enhancements across the territories through the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund, which supports large-scale infrastructure projects that strengthen areas vital to sustaining economic growth and enhancing Canadians' quality of life. Unlike more conventional 4G wireless upgrades, the innovative service being rolled out in Gameti, Nahanni Butte, Paulatuk and Ulukhaktok relies on satellite technology to connect wireless signals due to the more remote nature of the communities.

Bell Mobility Launches 4G Wireless Service in Pelly Crossing & Burwash Landing as Part of Northwestel Modernization Plan

Bell Mobility and the Government of Yukon announced the launch of 4G wireless service in Pelly Crossing and Burwash Landing. This expansion of Bell's 4G network was completed in partnership with the Government of Yukon and is part of Northwestel's Modernization Plan. Launched in 2013, the Plan is delivering advanced Internet and wireless services to northerners in all 3 territories. In October 2013, Northwestel announced the transfer of its wireless portfolio to Bell Mobility. As part of this transfer, Bell Mobility is delivering on the wireless components of the Northwestel Plan. Together, Bell and the Yukon government are investing approximately $2.6 million over the next 4 years to support the launch of 13 new wireless sites that will provide 4G service to additional communities across Yukon. Bell is investing more than $1.8 million, while the Yukon government is committing up to $758,000.
