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