The fastest wireless gets faster: Bell Mobility network the first in North America capable of delivering Quad Band LTE Advanced speeds
Bell today announced its award-winning LTE wireless network is now the first in North America capable of delivering Quad Band LTE Advanced (LTE-A) service, offering customers access to the fastest mobile data speeds available. With the addition of 256 QAM technology, Bell is ready to deliver broadband speed of up to 750 Megabits per second.
Also known as 4-carrier aggregation, Quad Band technology leverages multiple bands of wireless spectrum to boost top Tri Band LTE-A mobile data speeds from 335 Megabits per second (expected average download speeds of 12 to 100 Mbps) to 550 Mbps (expected average 18 to 150 Mbps). Combined with enhanced 256 QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) technology, Bell's Quad Band LTE-A network can now deliver mobile data speeds of up to 750 Mbps, with expected average speeds of 22 to 174 Mbps.
Bell is also pleased to announce today that the revolutionary new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones will be the first devices able to take advantage of this new network capability. In coming months, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ device software will be automatically upgraded to operate on Bell Quad Band 256 QAM LTE.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be available from Bell on April 21.
