High-speed Internet services will reach approximately 14,000 homes and businesses in Georgina

GEORGINA, ON, February 10, 2022 – Bell today announced the expansion of pure fibre Internet service to homes and businesses in the community of Georgina. Part of Bell’s capital expenditure acceleration program for investment in national next-generation network infrastructure, the expansion program will bring all-fibre broadband access to approximately 14,000 locations in Georgina by 2024.

Fully funded by Bell, this broadband expansion program will provide fast and high-capacity 100% fibre connections with Internet download speeds of up to 1.5 Gbps and access to leading Bell services such as Fibe TV. Last year, Bell announced an investment of $1.7 billion in capital expenditures over two years to accelerate the rollout of its broadband fibre, 5G and rural networks and help drive Canada’s recovery from the COVID crisis.

This capital acceleration is in addition to the approximately $4 billion in capital expenditures Bell typically invests in broadband network infrastructure and expansion each year, and will significantly increase the connections in localities across Canada while creating additional employment as network construction activity speeds up.

“Affordable, reliable, internet plays such a critical role in our lives today. It gives residents many options when it comes to education, running a business or working from home, which many companies have shifted to. We need to position Georgina for future demands, and staying resilient to the many changes. When competing with other communities to attract companies and residents, we know that high-speed internet can often be a deciding factor, and I am glad that residents have options when making that decision.”
