Bell Boosts Fibe Internet Top Speed to 1.5 Gbps

MONTRÉAL — Canadian ISP Bell announced an increase in its Fibe Internet access speeds to 1.5 Gbps.

"Bell Fibe brought gigabit internet speeds to Canada in 2015, and we're proud to leverage the world's best network technology to take Fibe even further with a new top speed of 1.5 Gbps for our home and small-business customers," said Rizwan Jamal, president of Bell Residential and Small Business. "Bell is already ranked as Canada's fastest internet provider, and we continue to lead the way in network innovation. Enabling broad consumer access to the fastest internet speeds as well as Canada's overall competitiveness in communications on the world stage, our latest Fibe speed advancement is another step forward in the ongoing evolution of Canada's broadband infrastructure."

Unlimited Fibe 1.5 Gbps service is now available in Ontario with rollouts to Québec, the Atlantic provinces and Manitoba to follow. Delivered over Bell's fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network and leveraging the powerful Home Hub 3000 modem/router already used by most Bell FTTP customers, the enhanced Internet service offers download speeds of up to 1.5 Gbps and uploads of up to 940 Mbps.
