Bell has launched the Bell Fibe 8.0 Gigabit in Toronto, offering Bell pure fibre Internet Gigabit 8.0 with symmetrical download and upload speeds of 8 gigabits per second (Gbps).
Claiming to be the fastest Internet speeds available in North America in the home, Bell pure fibre Internet Gigabit 8.0 is now available in eligible areas of Toronto. The Bell Giga Hub with Wi-Fi 6E, the most advanced Wi-Fi technology, is also now available for customers throughout Ontario and Québec.
Bell pure fibre Internet Gigabit 8.0 Internet speeds deliver download speeds five times faster than cable technology and upload speeds 250 times faster than cable technology.
Bell will continue to expand availability of Bell Fibe Gigabit 8.0 across its footprint over the coming months, in addition to continuing work on its aggressive fibre buildout, with plans to reach up to 900,000 more homes and businesses across much of Canada with direct fibre connections this year.
This is part of Bell’s two-year capital expenditure program of almost $10 billion, now in its second year, to accelerate the rollout of its broadband fibre, 5G, and rural networks.
“We’re excited that our customers in Toronto will be the first to experience Bell Fibe Gigabit 8.0 and the Giga Hub with Wi-Fi 6E so that they can enjoy the fastest Internet speeds and the best Wi-Fi technology in North America,” says Blaik Kirby, Group President, Consumer and Small & Medium Business, Bell. “And we won’t stop here. We’ll continue to advance our commitment to deliver a superb Internet experience for our customers across our entire footprint.”
With multiple devices in the home, from phones to computers, entertainment devices, and even smart appliances, all connecting to the Internet, Wi-Fi 6E can deliver faster speeds per connected device to help alleviate congestion.
Bell Fibe Gigabit 8.0 leverages the same simple integrated gateway as all Bell fibre-to-the-home installations, with no special devices or complex hardware configurations required to support the new, faster Internet speeds. In addition, Bell Wi-Fi pods are compatible with the Giga Hub for full coverage throughout the house.
Bell Fibe Gigabit 8.0 is available for eligible customers starting at $135/mo., which includes a credit of $15/mo. for a two-year period.
