Bell has announced its customers can now subscribe to “Canada’s fastest Internet service” Gigabit Fibe, available to its 1.3 million customers in Quebec and Ontario. The company says Gigabit Fibe offers downloads speeds up to 940 Mbps, with speeds exceeding 1 Gigabit or faster in 2016. Atlantic Canada will get Gigabit Fibe by the end of September.
Looking at the price chart below, Gigabit Fibe is available at $149.95 per month as a standalone Internet option, which offers 100 Mbps uploads and unlimited data usage. Bell says customers can upgrade to Gigabit Fibe in their bundles for an additional $10 per month as part of a temporary promo, for Fibe 25 users and up.
The fine print (it’s always good to read the fine print) says there is a $49.95 “Activation Fee,” along with a “one-time modem rental fee” of $99.95, but this is being credited to customers as a one-time discount.
Rizwan Jamal, President of Bell Residential Services, said in a statement “Gigabit Fibe is tomorrow’s technology, offering consumers the Internet access speeds that will enable them to take full advantage of online advancements into the future.”
Bell Gigabit Fibe is available in Brampton, Kingston, Kitchener-Waterloo, Milton, Ottawa, Peterborough and Regent Park, the Distillery District, Harbourfront and Willowdale areas in Toronto.
In Quebec, the service is available in Beloeil, Blainville, Chambly, Châteauguay, Gatineau, Joliette, La Prairie, Laval, Lévis, Magog, Montreal, Repentigny, Quebec City, Saint-Constant, Saint-Eustache, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Saint-Jérôme, Saint-Luc, Sherbrooke, Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Sorel-Tracy, Terrebonne, and Vaudreuil-Dorion.
