Bell reaches 35% 5G coverage, aims for 70% by year-end

Bell Canada announced that its 5G mobile network is now available to approximately 35% of the national population and is 'on track' to reach 'up to 70%' by the end of the year – significantly higher than a previously issued coverage target of around 50%. This week Bell and its vendor partners led by Ericsson and Nokia completed 5G expansion to 23 new markets across Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba. In Ontario, the expanded footprint encompassed additional areas of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Barrie, Kingston and Southern Ontario including Guelph, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo and London. In Quebec the 5G rollout reached Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivieres, while in Manitoba users in St. Andrews and Stonewall gained access to Bell 5G. The operator claims a peak theoretical mobile data access speed of 'up to 1.7Gbps' and highlights a range of available 5G-ready devices including the iPhone 12, Samsung Galaxy S21, LG Velvet 5G, TCL 20 Pro and many others, while recommending its new Unlimited Share packages.
