Bell LTE Network Coverage Maps Now Online for GTA and Southern Ontario

Share:

Last night Bell announced it would launch its LTE network in Toronto and other parts of Southern Ontario today, beating rival Rogers to the punch in those areas by two weeks. The coverage maps are now online at Bell’s website, and maps show a broad extension of LTE availability. The only issue is waiting for LTE-ready devices.

According to Bell, their primary goal of LTE is to bring streaming media from recently acquired CTV:

An LTE launch is “really the reason why the CTV acquisition makes so much sense, it lets us line up all the piece,” Mr. Oosterman said. “Pick a screen and fill it with goodness.”

Another network war between the ‘Big 3’? Bring it on.

    Well, for the first five minutes, anyway, until you hit your data cap and have to stop watching.

    Yeah, unless they have plans of making their mobile broadcasting unlimited and free for Bell users, there’s little benefit to the subscriber.

    Between the big three? I thought telus and bell are building their network together? Or was that for a different type of network, seeing as this is LTE. Well I’m happy now atleast bell and others aren’t lying 100% when they say they have 4g, considering it was just hspa+….

  • Telus and Bell haven’t officially announced a LTE partnership, but in terms of ‘wars’, I was referring more to pricing and availability.

    Although 4G is actually LTE Advanced so they’re still lying about that.
