Bell Rolling Out Fibre Out To More Places…. Further Putting The Pressure On Rogers

Rogers is really not going to like this. According to this press release, Bell will be spending a billion dollars over the next two years to fast-track its fibre, wireless and rural network rollouts. Here’s what’s on tap:

  • 900,000 extra fibre and rural Wireless Home Internet locations
  • Double its 5G population coverage this year.
  • Bell says up to 400,000 new homes will get broadband in 2021, along with up to 250,000 extra all-fibre connections, and up to 150,000 more homes covered under Wireless Home Internet.

This is really going to further put pressure on Rogers who already trails them when it comes to the quality and speed of their Internet access. I will be watching to see how Rogers responds to this. Assuming that they can.
