Bell Canada says that it has launched new EV-DO networks in Ottawa, Hamilton, Burlington and Oakville, along with a new roaming agreement with Aliant for EV-DO service in Halifax. Bell Mobility currently also offers its customers high-speed wireless EV-DO data network access in Vancouver, Whistler, Calgary, Edmonton, Brandon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Quebec City, Mont- Tremblant and Montreal making Bell Canada the only carrier in Canada offering the fastest high-speed mobile wireless service in all regions of Canada.
“Canada is a country on the move – and Bell Canada has optimized high-speed wireless no matter what major city you do business in or travel to,” said Jim Jaques, Senior Vice President Business Marketing and Sales, Bell Mobility. “Bell Canada is delivering what our customers from coast-to-coast want – the freedom of true mobility.”
“Bell’s investment in EV-DO means that wireless broadband is expanding coverage at unprecedented speeds by any measure,” said Jaques. “In just six months we are able to offer the majority of urban Canadians wireless broadband.”
“This investment is a priority for Bell because the speed at which we’ve expanded EV-DO coverage will change the way people connect,” said Jaques. “From watching live TV on the go with frame rates high enough to deliver a fluid image to creating and editing documents in the most familiar formats while mobile, EV-DO changes the way people work and play.”
The Mobile World database notes that Bell Canada ended last year with some 5.4 million customers, representing a market share of 32%.
