Bell has announced it has launched 5G roaming for the United States, while also expanded its network in Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.

“Bell 5G delivers unmatched mobile access speeds and capacity, and our accelerated capital investment plan is bringing the country’s top-ranked 5G network to more Canadians every day,” said Claire Gillies, President, Bell Mobility, in a statement.

“We’re thrilled to announce Bell 5G service for 28 additional communities in Manitoba, Ontario and Québec, including Québec City, while also unveiling the first 5G roaming service for Canadians travelling in the United States,” added Gillies.

The following cities now have access to Bell’s 5G network:

  • Manitoba: Beausejour, Brokenhead, Hanover, Macdonald, Niverville, Ritchot, Rockwood, Rosser, Ste. Anne, St. Clements, Springfield, Taché, West St. Paul and Whitehead.
