Building 5G right.
Canada’s fastest 5G network is here.

With incredibly fast speed and near-instant connections, 5G will enhance the lives of all Canadians, bringing generational changes to the way we work, live and play. The Bell 5G network is in major markets across the country and it has already been recognized by GWS and PCMag as Canada’s fastest 5G network.3

5G will take some time to roll out across the entire country. That is why it is so important that, with Bell, when 5G-capable devices are not in a 5G area, they operate on our industry-leading 4G LTE network.

Bell is Canada’s best network because we build our networks the right way. That’s why, more than ever, Bell is your best choice.
