Bell expands 4G wireless service to small communities in Atlantic Canada

Bell has announced that 52 communities across Nova Scotia, PEI, New Brunswick and Newfoundland & Labrador will have access to the telecomm provider’s 4G LTE wireless network by the end of the year. By the end of 2015, Bell says that more than 100 Atlantic Canadian communities will be on the 4G network.

Bell’s LTE network already covers 81% of the national population, including major centres in the Atlantic provinces. The company hopes to increase their coverage to include 98% of Canadians by continuing to expand into rural areas.

“Bell is proud to announce that consumers and businesses in smaller communities across the Atlantic region will be next to benefit from the high quality, high bandwidth mobile connections made possible with LTE,” said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility. “Customers in places from Campbellton to Bonavista and Bridgetown to Tignish will have access to the same great broadband service and mobile applications as are available in major centres across Canada. For people living, working or travelling in Atlantic Canada, wireless just got better.”
