Bell expands new wireless broadband Internet service to more communities in Quinte West and Hastings, Lennox & Addington, Northumberland and Prince Edward Counties
Wireless Home Internet provides residents in smaller towns and rural areas with high-speed connectivity
FRANKFORD, ON, April 5, 2019 – Bell today announced the continued expansion of its Wireless Home Internet broadband service to more Ontario communities in Quinte West and Hastings, Lennox & Addington, Northumberland and Prince Edward Counties.
The innovative new service, currently available to eligible homes in Bloomfield, Frankford, Madoc, Roseneath and Tweed, will soon be expanded to Bancroft, Campbellford, Cobourg, Greater Napanee, Hastings and Trenton.
Bell Wireless Home Internet is designed to provide affordable broadband access to residents in smaller towns and unserved and underserved rural communities. The 5G-capable technology operates in the 3500 MHz spectrum band on Bell’s advanced LTE wireless network.
“Wireless Home Internet is a revolutionary new service that extends all the benefits of high-speed Internet access to residents and cottagers alike,” said Rizwan Jamal, President of Bell Residential and Small Business. “As the country’s leader in broadband network investment and innovation, Bell is proud to keep Canadians connected whether they live in major urban centres, smaller towns or rural communities.”
To install Wireless Home Internet, Bell technicians place a small antenna outside a customer’s home that connects to the Bell LTE network. Customers also receive the advanced Bell Home Hub modem to provide fast Wi-Fi throughout the home. Wireless Home Internet can also be bundled with Bell Satellite TV, offering more than 250 live and on demand channels on tablets, smartphones, laptops and big screens with the Bell Fibe TV app.
Now available in more than 30 communities in Ontario and Québec, Bell’s Wireless Home Internet service is expected to reach more than 200,000 additional households in 138 centres this year, eventually extending to 1.2 million households.
