HAMILTON, ON, September 8, 2021 – Bell today announced a major milestone in its expansion of pure fibre Internet service to homes and businesses in urban and rural areas of Hamilton. As part of its accelerated capital investment in national next-generation network infrastructure, Bell has now reached more than 75,000 Hamilton locations with all-fibre broadband access. The expansion program will bring direct-fibre network connections to an additional 15,000 locations by the end of 2021, including in the communities of Ancaster, Dundas and Mount Hope.

Today’s announcement is part of a $400 million investment to bring direct fibre network connections to more than 200,000 homes and business locations throughout Hamilton over the next 3 years, the largest digital infrastructure investment in the city’s history announced by Bell and the City of Hamilton in 2020.

“Bridging the digital divide is a priority for Bell as we advance how Canadians connect with each other and the world,” said Rizwan Jamal, President of Bell Residential and Small Business. “We’re proud to bring our pure fibre connections and world-leading Internet and TV services to households and commercial locations in communities throughout the Greater Hamilton Area, including Ancaster, Dundas and Mount Hope as part of this historic network acceleration program.”
