Bell claims Canadian speed record with 3Gbps symmetrical fibre launch

7 Apr 2022

Bell has claimed ‘the fastest internet speeds of any major provider in Canada’ with the launch of a fibre broadband service offering download and upload speeds of 3Gbps, noting that its new premium fibre option provides ‘total speeds three times faster than cable’. A press release noted: ‘Many customers have multiple devices connected throughout the home and in use at the same time. Bell’s unlimited pure fibre package comes with the Home Hub 4000 with Wi-Fi 6, the latest Wi-Fi technology on the market. Wi-Fi 6 enables customers to stream, share, learn, work from home, conduct video calls, game and do everything they need to do on their devices simultaneously, without sacrificing speed and performance.’

Bell announced that its symmetrical 3Gbps service coverage initially reaches ‘most areas of Toronto’ (while elsewhere in the press release noting availability in ‘eligible areas of Toronto’). The telco stated that it will roll out 3Gbps connectivity in more regions across the country ‘soon’.
