Later today, Bell Mobility will launch its next generation 4G LTE wireless network service in areas of Toronto, Mississauga, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph. The new network will provide users with the “fastest mobile Internet speeds available,” offering HD quality online TV and video, wireless video conferencing and chat with “quality previously available only on wireline or high-speed Wi-Fi connections.” The carrier plans to cover additional Canadian markets this year and through 2012.

At the moment, Bell is offering the LTE/HSPA+ Sierra Wireless U313 Turbo Sticks, while network-compatible smartphones and tablets are expected to be released later this year. The mentioned USB stick is available for $79.95 on a three-year term (or for $219.95 with no term contract) online and in Bell stores across LTE service areas. 4G LTE flex-rate data plans start at $45 a month for 1.5 GB which automatically adjusts based on data usage.

Finally, it’s worth adding that in the areas where there’s no LTE signal around, Bell’s customers will be able to use HSPA+ network which offers speeds of up to 42 Mbps.

    Also worth noting – it looks like the Droid Bionic and BlackBerry PlayBook will be some of Bell’s first LTE devices.
