Bell starts promoting LTE-Advanced in Eastern Canada, teases BlackBerry Priv release

Launched in February, Bell’s LTE-Advanced network, which supports speeds up to 220 megabits per second, is now live in several Canadian cities, including Toronto, London, Calgary, Vancouver, Fredericton, Sydney, Charlottetown and Halifax. Compatible with a few newer Android devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge+, and the HTC One M9, the company claims that it uses three separate signals using carrier aggregation to achieve those speeds.

In an effort to increase its subscriber base in Eastern Canada, Bell has started heavily promoting its LTE-A network, stating faster speeds are now available to experience. In its recent quarterly results, Bell reported its subscriber base at just over 8.1 million, with 57 percent connected to its LTE network.
