WINNIPEG, Man. — Bell announced the latest expansion of Canada’s 5G wireless network to more Manitoba communities.

Now available in St. Andrews and Stonewall, the Bell 5G network now offers 9 Manitoba municipalities the best in mobile connectivity. Building on initial 5G service launches in select parts of Winnipeg and Brandon in 2020, more Manitobans are now connected with the wireless technology of the future, with superfast data speeds and unprecedented capacity to enable next-generation applications like artificial intelligence, virtual reality, fully connected homes and vehicles, and Smart City platforms.

“As part of our ongoing capital investment plan for Manitoba, Bell Mobility is thrilled to bring 5G wireless service to St. Andrews and Stonewall, putting these communities at the forefront of mobile communications in Canada,” said Ryan Klassen, Vice Chair of Bell MTS & Western Canada in a prepared statement. “Bell fibre and wireless networks will be the backbone of Manitoba’s economy into the future, delivering the better and faster connections that are already transforming the way Manitobans live and do business.”

Bell is extending Canada’s 5G network to more locations in Manitoba throughout the year, building on previous 5G wireless deployments in Brandon, Cornwallis, East St. Paul, Elton, Selkirk, Steinbach and Winnipeg.
