Bell has expanded pure fibre Internet service to homes and businesses in Guelph. Part of Bell’s capital expenditure acceleration program for investment in national next-generation network infrastructure, the expansion program will bring all-fibre broadband access to approximately 44,000 additional locations in Guelph by 2024.
Fully funded by Bell, this broadband expansion program will provide fast and high-capacity 100% fibre connections with Internet download speeds of up to 1.5 Gbps and access to leading Bell services such as Fibe TV. This is part of Bell’s historic 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.
“This is great news for Guelph. On behalf of the City, I want to thank Bell for this significant expansion, which will support fast and reliable Internet connections for our growing community. It will help us all stay connected to work, school, businesses, entertainment, and each other,” said, Cam Guthrie, Mayor of Guelph.
“We know that fast and reliable Internet connections are more important than ever. As part of our long-standing objective to connect Canadians in communities throughout Ontario and across our footprint, we’re proud to bring our pure fibre connections and world-leading Internet and TV services to more households and businesses in Guelph,” commented, Bruce Furlong, SVP Network, Bell.
