BCE Launches Bell Gigabit Fibe in Quebec and Ontario

  • BCE
VERDUN, QUEBEC — With more than 1.3 million homes in communities across Ontario and Québec ready for Gigabit Fibe, including 50,000 locations already linked in Toronto, BCE announced that it is now launching its Bell Gigabit Fibe service. The Atlantic region is expected to launch by end of Q3 and will be available to 2.2 million homes by end of 2015.

Toronto Fiber Infrastructure Project

In June, Bell announced the rollout of broadband fiber directly to more than a million homes and businesses across the city of Toronto to enable its new super high speed Gigabit Fibe Internet service in Canada's largest city. Creating approximately 2,400 direct jobs, the $1.14 billion project is the single largest infrastructure buildout in Bell's plan to invest $20 billion in new broadband fiber and wireless networks by the end of 2020. As the service launches in Ontario and Québec Gigabit Fibe will be initially available in Toronto to approximately 50,000 locations in the neighborhoods of Regent Park, the Distillery District, Harbourfront and Willowdale.

Bell Gigabit Fibe, like Google Fiber and similar gigabit Internet services in the US, will offer speeds of up to 940 Mbps at launch, rising to a full 1000 Megabits (1 Gigabit) per second or faster in 2016 as equipment evolves to support these speeds.
