Bell and Telus Seeing Wireless Outages in Toronto
Bell announced on Wednesday some wireless customers are seeing an outage in Toronto, Ontario.
“Some customers in the Toronto area may be experiencing a Mobility service interruption. We are working to restore service as quickly as possible,” said Bell at 10:34am PDT/1:34pm EDT.
