Bell Brings LTE To Some Parts Of Canada

Seeing as Rogers has been lighting up LTE in Ottawa and Toronto, you know that Bell had to respond. Thus they’ve announced that LTE will make an appearance in Toronto, Waterloo, Hamilton, Guelph and Mississauga. Over the next year the rollout will continue to other parts of Canada with the focus being on urban areas first. If you live in rural Canada you’ll have to wait until Canada’s 700Mhz auction is complete to see if you get LTE. Thus rural Canadians are once again shafted by the Canadian telco industry. But rural Canadians are used to that. Only one device is available at launch which is the Sierra Wireless U313 Turbo Stick, available for $80. Though tablets and smart phones are allegedly coming this year. Users can expect peak speeds of 75 megabits per second and typical speeds ranging between 12 and 25 Mbps. According to Bell, speeds are expected to increase to as fast as 150 Mbps in the future.
