Bell Mobility today announced the launch of its HSPA network as well as new HSPA smartphones and turbo sticks.

 

Offering mobile speeds up to 21 Megabits per second (21 Mbps), the new network covers 1.2 million square kilometres, reaching approximately 20,000 Canadian towns and cities and 93% of the population.

 

It also supports international roaming in more than 200 countries including the U.S. as a result of a roaming agreement with AT&T Corp., the largest HSPA operator in the U.S.

 

“Our all-IP (internet protocol) network infrastructure employs enough new high-speed fiber to wrap halfway around the globe, ensuring that Bell consumer and business clients have the best experience possible in Canadian wireless,” said Stephen Howe, chief technology officer at Bell Mobility.
