Bell’s anticipated HSPA network is set to be launched on Nov. 4, three months ahead of schedule. Bell and BCE president George Cope made the announcement at the Canadian Club in Montreal today. Calling it the “most advanced” network in the world, Cope said the early launch—originally slated for the 2010 Winter Olympics in February—underscores Bell’s commitment to investing in next-generation broadband networks. With anticipated speeds of 21 Megabits per second (MpS) the new network will rank as one of the fastest networks in Canada. It will cover an estimated area of a million square miles, servicing 20,000 Canadian cities and towns, which is about 93% of the population, according to Bell. Bell said the new network will operate alongside its EVDO 3G network.
