Bell MTS has launched Wireless Home Internet (WHI) service in 12 rural and distant communities in Manitoba.

“WHI is 5G-capable technology delivered over Bell’s wireless network using 3500 MHz spectrum, enabling access speeds of up to 50/10 (50 Megabits per second download/10 Mbps upload) with no overage fees,” Bell MTS notes.

The service is beginning to roll out to eligible houses within the following communities: Dauphin, Gimli, Grand Beach, Lac du Bonnet, Libau, Peguis First Nation, Shilo, Sidney, Victoria Beach, Whitemouth, Winkler and Woodlands.

“Wireless Home Internet has proven extremely popular in rural locations in other parts of Canada, and Bell MTS is proud to take our network investment to the next level by bringing this innovative service to Manitoba,” stated Ryan Klassen, the vice-chair of Bell MTS, in a press release.

“By leveraging the scale and quality of Bell’s high-performance, fibre-connected wireless networks, we’re delivering fast, reliable broadband access to residents in smaller communities and rural regions throughout the province.”

The service plans to deliver the service to 40,000 rural and distant places within the province by the tip of the 12 months.

Further, Bell goals to supply WHI service to 1 million rural households throughout Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

The Wireless Home Internet program is a part of Bell’s accelerated community funding plan to assist Canada’s restoration from the COVID-19 pandemic.
