Bell has announced it will be expanding its 5G network to more cities in British Columbia and Alberta this week.
On October 9, the Bell 5G network will launch in the following cities in British Columbia:
- Port Coquitlam
- Maple Ridge
- New Westminster
- Pitt Meadows
- White Rock
…and the following cities in Alberta:
- Fort Saskatchewan
- Sherwood Park
- Spruce Grove
- Stony Plain
- Neighbouring areas of Parkland County and Acheson
If these cities sound familiar, it’s because earlier today Telus announced it would be expanding its 5G network in these cities later this week as well. A Bell spokesperson confirmed to iPhone in Canada it is similarly launching in these areas, as part of a network sharking agreement between both companies.
Bell originally planned to charge customers $10 per month to access 5G networks in 2021, but later reversed the decision. Telus will not charge for 5G network access, leaving only Rogers, set to charge its Infinite plan customers $15/month in 2021.
