Casa Systems, a provider of broadband technology solutions, announced an agreement with Bell Canada to provide 5G Sub-6 High-Gain Outdoor consumer premise equipment (CPE) for Bell’s Wireless Home Internet service.
Bell’s upcoming 5G Wireless Home Internet rollout is expected to be North America’s largest 5G Sub-6 fixed wireless deployment.
Bell is Canada’s largest communications company with more than 22 million consumer and business customer connections.
Since 2018, Casa Systems has provided 4G CPE for Bell’s Wireless Home Internet service, which is now connecting rural homes and business locations across Atlantic Canada, Québec, Ontario, and Manitoba with Internet download speeds of up to 50 Mbps.
“Bell is significantly accelerating our capital investment in broadband network infrastructure to support Canada’s ongoing social and economic recovery from the COVID crisis – and 5G enhancement of our rural Wireless Home Internet service is a key part of the plan,” said Shawn Omstead, VP of Residential Products and Services at Bell Canada.
Jerry Guo, CEO of Casa Systems, said: “A real landmark for Casa Systems, this agreement highlights the dramatic technology advances we’re driving in the speed, reach and reduced cost of fixed wireless access. This is a game-changer that opens up broadband services to more people.”
