It’s now official. Bell will be launching their HSPA network on Wednesday, November 4th. This has been no surprise as we’ve simply waited for the official announcement. In addition, you can expect the iPhone to launch on the 4th plus other key devices.
BCE President & CEO George Cope said “In two days, Canadians will be able to access the most advanced wireless network in the world. The launch of our new network – months ahead of schedule – underlines that the Bell team continues to deliver on our strategic imperatives to accelerate wireless in Canada and to invest in next-generation broadband networks. We move forward every day toward achieving our goal – for Bell to be recognized by customers as Canada’s leading communications company.”
Bell also reiterated that the “new network will be the fastest in Canada, with access speeds as high as 21 Megabits per second (Mbps) and with the largest service area by far – more than a million square kilometres – covering approximately 20,000 Canadian cities and towns and 93% of the national population. With international roaming capability on GSM, UMTS and HSPA networks, Bell HSPA clients will also be able to roam internationally in more than 200 countries at launch.”
