BCE Unit Expands LTE Advanced Wireless Coverage in Manitoba - September 25, 2018

BCE

Bell MTS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BCE, Inc. BCE, recently announced that it has extended LTE Advanced (LTE-A) wireless coverage network in Manitoba as part of its $1 billion infrastructure investment plan for the province. Notably, the company will make the LTE-A wireless service available in Woodridge this week, with the roll outs in Stuartburn and Zhoda expected in 2019. The company continues to focus on strategic areas like investment in broadband network and services, accelerating wireless services, leveraging wireline momentum and expanding media coverage. In the past three months, the Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) stock has lost 1.1% compared with the industry’s decline of 3.0%. However, the company’s local line access for traditional telephony service continues to face a decline among large customers due to higher wireless substitution and migration to IP-based services.

Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in Canada - 2018: Canada Consults on a Range of Spectrum Assets for 5G Use - ResearchAndMarkets.com

BCE T

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Canada - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. Much of this work is being supported by regulatory efforts to ensure that operators have spectrum available to develop 5G services, for which several auctions are planned between 2019 and 2024. Assigning and releasing spectrum for 5G will allay existing fears that the country could lag developments in the US and Europe. In addition, the regulator has set aside a portion of the certain spectrum for new entrants to encourage competition in the wireless segment. Much of the investment among telcos has been channelled into LTE infrastructure to capitalise of consumer demand for mobile data services, while there has also been further investment in 5G.

BCE

Iqaluit, Nunavut’s capital and largest community, is the first to have the high-speed network commissioned, and all 25 Nunavut communities will have access to the network in the coming months.

Northwestel will also begin to offer a new 5 Mbps package for $80 per month, with savings of $100 per month over current rates.

Northwestel's upgraded satellite internet to roll out across Nunavut

BCE

IQALUIT, Nunavut — BCE Inc’s Northwestel says it will begin providing a faster satellite-based internet service for homes throughout Nunavut, starting with the territorial capital of Iqaluit on Oct. 1. Upgraded broadband service to the territory’s 24 other communities will become available over the coming months, starting with Cambridge Bay, Arviat and Rankin Inlet. The service upgrade is enabled by the launch of Telesat’s new Telstar 19 Vantage satellite this summer aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. Northwestel’s upgrade received $49 million from a federal government program for improving internet access in rural and remote parts of Canada. But even after tripling Northwestel’s current maximum speeds, the new service will be relatively slow and expensive compared with more densely populated markets. By comparison, Bell Canada’s has a 25 mbps internet-only landline service in Ontario with 350 gigabytes of data for about $80 per month, before discounts.
