Covering over 98% of the population, Bell offers more coverage with access to the largest 4G network in Canada. We’re also proud to say that Bell gives you access to a network that never falls back to 2G. Always moving forward, we’re now working to give you access to even faster speeds as we continue to roll out the LTE network, already Canada’s largest, and growing. And with over 4,000 free Wi-Fi locations, we also offer all mobile users the largest Wi-Fi network across Canada.
Coverage shown is approximate and actual coverage may vary. Theoretical peak speeds may vary by region. Reception and expected speeds may vary due to topography, environmental conditions, device type and other factors.
Expected download speeds (Theoretical peak download speeds may vary):
LTE Advanced: average 12-87 Mbps
You will notice slower HSPA speeds of up to 1.5 Mbps in the following communities in the North: Arviat, Baker Lake, Cambridge Bay, Gameti, Iqaluit, Lutselk'e, Nahanni Butt, Paulatuk Rankin Inlet, Sachs Harbour and Ulukhaktok.
Due to a change in our CDMA/EVDO coverage, you may notice slower data speeds in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba starting October 1, 2014. Visit bell.ca/cdmanetwork for details.
Due to technology limitations, Prepaid HSPA service will not be available in certain areas of Nunavut, namely: Cambridge Bay, Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit.
HSPA Extended (EXT): Available to Bell customers with compatible devices for limited and occasional use. Usage within extended coverage is billed as part of your current plan. Just like travelling outside your local area on the Bell network, long distance charges apply to incoming calls received while within extended coverage. For outgoing calls, long distance applies if the number called is outside the local calling area of where the call is placed. Long distance charges do not apply if your rate plan or bundle includes Canadian long distance/nationwide calling/Fab feature. Data speeds will be slower and certain services are not available or limited, including Push-to-talk, Bell Mobile TV and other video applications. Usage is subject to Bell’s Responsible Use of Services policy restrictions; see bell.ca/responsibleuse. Other conditions apply. For important details see bell.ca/extendedcoverage.
Even though we already give access to Canada’s largest LTE network, currently reaching over 31 million people, we have aggressive expansion plans to deliver LTE speeds and performance across the entire country. And rest assured, until LTE is available in your area, Bell has you covered with the powerful 4G network - also the largest in Canada.Get notified about the latest coverage updates
