Bell Expanding Pure Fibre Internet to Over 25 Communities in New Brunswick This Year
Bell announced on Tuesday its pure fibre internet is set to expand to over 25 communities in New Brunswick this year, set to reach over 20,000 locations in 2022.
The expansion program is funded by Bell’s capital expenditure acceleration program and will bring 100% fibre connections with download speeds of up to 1.5 Gbps.
Bell pure fibre internet is already available in 7,200 locations in the communities of Hampton (including Darlings Island), Lamèque, Miscou, Memramcook, Saint-Louis-de-Kent and Scoudouc; an extra 1,600 locations are coming soon to the Kingston Peninsula.
By the end of 2022, the following communities will have Bell pure fibre internet: Charters Settlement, Hartland, Keswick, Mazerolle Settlement, Nasonworth, Perth-Andover, Petitcodiac, Plaster Rock, Rivière-Verte, Sainte-Anne-de-Madawaska, Saint-Léonard, Shediac Bridge and Tracadie (including Four Roads, Losier Settlement, Pontgrave, Pont-Lafrance, Pont-Landry, Robertson Brook Road, Sainte-Rose, Six Roads and Val-Comeau).
“At a time when fast and reliable Internet connections are more important than ever, we’re proud to bring our pure fibre connection to over 20,000 households and businesses in more than 25 communities across New Brunswick. Through our own fully-funded investments in world-class broadband networks, Bell is advancing our long-standing objective to connect Canadians in communities throughout New Brunswick and across our footprint,” said Glen LeBlanc, Bell CFO and Vice Chair Atlantic, in a statement.
When pure fibre internet is available, Bell says it will notify residents, while addresses with availability will also show on the Bell Aliant website.
