Our network

Overview

Canada’s fastest network.2

With access to Canada’s fastest network, you can stream, download, browse and share at blazing fast speeds from coast to coast. With Bell, you can access peak theoretical download speeds of up to 1.1 Gbps in select cities* (expect average speeds of 25-220 Mbps with compatible devices). Plus, with LTE Advanced—the gold standard in network technology—we consistently deliver faster speeds in more places than any other network.

*Available in Toronto and Kingston with more cities to come.

Canada’s largest LTE network.2

We cover over 34 million Canadians. Plus, we’re working to give you access to even faster speeds as we continue to roll out the LTE Advanced network, the world’s fastest and most advanced wireless technology. Bell’s LTE Advanced network already covers over 82% of the Canadian population.

LTE

A stronger LTE signal in more places across Canada.

We’ve added cell towers and made improvements in in-building coverage to give customers a better, stronger, more reliable signal in more places across Canada. Backed by the latest network infrastructure technology, Bell also gives you access to a network offering the most cell towers connected by fibre.

Building, maintaining and continually enhancing the entire Bell network takes hard work and dedication. 7600 employees strong, Bell only hires the most passionate and professional engineers to manage and support our network, all with the shared goal of providing Canadians with the absolute best, most advanced mobile experience and proving that mobility networks are not created equal. Last year alone, our network team drove over 1.4 million kilometres optimizing the network. That’s equivalent to driving from Halifax to Vancouver 300 times!

A new generation of speed is here.

Our LTE Advanced wireless network has delivered speeds of a Gigabit per second. Trials were held in Mississauga, Ontario with theoretical speeds as high as 1.5 Gbps. Bell is the first wireless provider in Canada to successfully hit Gigabit LTE-Advanced speeds in tests. Bell's enhanced LTE-A network technology will continue to rollout across the country in 2018 as smartphones that support these advanced speeds come to market.

* Based on a third party score (Global Wireless Solutions OneScoreTM) calculated using wireless network testing in Canada against other national wireless networks of combined data, voice, reliability and network coverage.

  1. Available in Ancaster, Barrie, Brampton East, Burlington, Kitchener, London, Niagara Falls, Oshawa, Pickering, Scarborough and Welland.
  2. Up to 2x faster is based on Bell’s previous expected average speeds and Bell’s current expected average speeds with compatible devices in select areas. Speeds may vary due to topography, environmental conditions, device type and other factors. See bell.ca/network.
