Now available in Montréal, the Greater Toronto Area, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, Bell's initial 5G service will expand to more centres across the country as the next-generation wireless technology grows in speed and capacity, enabling unprecedented connectivity and an infinite range of new consumer and business mobile applications in coming years.

To accelerate 5G innovation in Canada, Bell has also partnered with Western University to create an advanced 5G research centre, including the deployment of a campus-wide 5G network.

Bell 5G customers in Montréal, the GTA, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver will have access to enhanced mobile data speeds and faster response times, as well as seamless connections to Bell's national LTE network which reaches 99% of the Canadian population and already offers data speeds that independent analysts have found rank with the fastest in the world.

The high capacity and near instant connections offered by mobile 5G will support a virtually unlimited range of new consumer and business applications.
