The Bell 5G difference.
Not all 5G networks are created equal. While many may say they have 5G, it takes a leader in network innovation to build Canada’s best 5G network. Bell has the world-class infrastructure required to provide the coverage, reliability and support needed to deliver the network of the future.
In recent network speed testing, GWS has named Bell the fastest in Canada.
In addition, PCMag has also awarded Bell as having the fastest mobile network for 5G network speeds3
Proof that with the Bell 5G difference, we’re building 5G right.
Bell’s 5G is backed by fibre, the world’s best network technology. This allows for a faster and more reliable network. Bell has Canada's largest fibre-optic network with more than 240,000 total kilometres – providing the best foundation for 5G.
When it comes to developing 5G, the number of cell towers is key. With Bell, you get access to over 2x more cell towers than you do with the next-largest network.4
Bell invests nearly $4 billion each year in Canada’s next-generation network infrastructure. It’s how we’re able to deliver world-class network technologies and keep our customers at the forefront of the 5G revolution.
The best-in-class team of 7,600 network experts who built Canada’s best 4G LTE network are now working on our 5G network to help ensure Bell will offer you our absolute best and most advanced mobile experience as we continue our rollout.
What 5G and 5G+ will mean for Canada’s best network.1
Our 5G and 5G+ enable theoretical peak download speed of up to 1.7 Giga bits per sec, referrer * 5G available in select major areas of Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, the Greater Toronto Area, Montreal and more. in cities, towns and communities across Canada for an incredible mobile experience (average expected speeds between 80–556 Mbps). Once future 5G technology is fully deployed, it will enable mobile experiences and applications that we can’t even imagine today.
Up to 100x faster speeds
Future 5G technology deployments will have theoretical peak download speeds that are up to 100x faster than 4G LTE. This means large files will be downloaded in seconds, videos will be streamed in the highest resolution, and you’ll benefit from an overall better experience.
5G will also provide faster Internet speed to users in remote areas that currently don’t have access to fibre technology.
Up to 1,000x greater capacityFuture 5G technology connected devices will be able to receive multiple streams of data, dramatically increasing their capacity to enjoy reliably fast speeds, even during peak times and at crowded events.
Up to 3x lower latencyFuture 5G technology will allow devices to connect to one another with a lightning-fast response time. This opens up possibilities for real-time gaming, self-driving cars, and other immersive experiences that rely on real-time communication.
