Bell Mobility this week announced the expansion of its next generation 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless network service into areas around Halifax Nova Scotia and Belleville Ontario.
Halifax and Belleville join areas of Toronto, Mississauga, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph with access to the new LTE network.
Telus Mobility has upgraded its wireless network to HSPA+ dual cell in Atlantic Canada, the company said today. The improvements in Eastern part of Canada are part of Telus’ $1.8 billion plan to expand and improve service across the country.
Bell Aliant announced this week it will spend $55 million in order to bring a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network to approximately 160,000 homes and businesses in the Halifax Regional Municipality by the middle of this year.
FTTH connectivity is notable because it allows telecommunications providers to offer numerous services such as high definition television along with very fast internet speeds.
In a broadcasting decision issued last week, the CRTC has approved an application by CKDU-FM Society which would allow the station to move its current transmission site to a higher location.
The move will increase the size of the stations service areas despite decreasing its average effective radiated power from 3,200 watts to 2,460 watts.
