Bell Canada today announced is introducing faster Internet speeds and faster mobile technology in Atlantic Canada. The Bell Gigabit Fibe 3.0 service offers symmetrical download and upload speeds of 3 Gbps (gigabits per second) and is now available to customers in Fredericton and Moncton, New Brunswick. The operator's 5G+ mobile speeds are also now available to customers in many centres across Atlantic Canada.

The Bell Gigabit Fibe 3.0 service includes the provider's Giga Hub with Wi-Fi 6E platform, enabling gigabit Wi-Fi speeds up to two times faster for connected devices shared in the home than Wi-Fi 6E solutions offered today by other major Canadian ISPs, according to Bell.

Bell began deploying 3500 MHz wireless spectrum in the summer of 2022, unleashing the next phase of its 5G network. Today, Bell is now expanding its 5G+ service to more areas across Atlantic Canada, including Moncton and Riverview in New Brunswick; St John's, Mount Pearl, Portugal Cove-St. Philip's and Paradise in Newfoundland and Labrador; and Halifax Regional Municipality in Nova Scotia.

Bell 5G+ service is expected to be faster and more responsive, allowing for a superior mobile experience, with mobile speeds in Halifax expected to be 50% faster than before.

"As a leader at Bell and a Nova Scotian, I am excited that our advanced services and technologies are now available for customers across the Atlantic region. Enjoying content at home or on the go is now even better for Atlantic Canadians, allowing them to do more of what they want online, even faster," concluded Glen LeBlanc, Bell CFO and vice chair Atlantic.
