Bell rings a first with ‘unlimited’ 3.5G data service

21 Sep 2007

Bell Canada today launched an unlimited data service, allowing notebook owners with a free ExpressCard or PC Card slot to connect to the internet without worrying about bandwidth limits or access to a Wi-Fi hotspot. The plan utilises several of the operator’s access technologies including its faster EV-DO Revision A network, offering theoretical peak connection speeds of 3.1Mbps (downlink) and 1.8Mbps (uplink). The service is available now for CAD75 (USD74) per month plus a CAD9 access fee and the price of an adapter card; no mention has been made of extending the feature to cellphones.
