Bell has just announced that they have “begun to double HSPA+ network speeds” and will be releasing North America’s first 42 Mbps Dual Cell product – the Novatel Wireless U547 Turbo Stick. This will be available November 23rd only in Toronto, then rolling out to other cities sometime in 2011. That’s blazing fast speeds and would be great to actually see this in action actually reaching those speeds.
In the release Bell says that “when paired with a laptop or netbook. Novatel’s latest Turbo Stick will allow Bell Mobility clients to experience mobile access speeds never before available for the fastest mobile Internet access, business applications, video streaming, gaming and much more”. There was no hint of what the Turbo stick will cost but a new “speed-based pricing” will be available for Dual Cell compatible devices at an add-on for $10 /month.
Update: We’ve were sent a pic of the Novatel U547 Turbo Stick.
