Bell's LTE Network Almost Here, LTE Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 8.9 in Tow

It would be the second 4G LTE network in the country

Rogers has already announced plans to deploy an LTE network in Canada, and it seems that it won't be the only wireless carrier to make the move, as Bell is gearing up for the move as well.

Some of the latest reports on the matter even suggest that the operator is almost ready to fire the new LTE network up, and that it will also have in store a nice range of devices at launch.

Although rumors on Bell's plans for LTE are not new, it appears that only lately they began gaining more substance.

The carrier has not offered specific info on the matter until now, but it is expected to do so soon, rumor has it.

Of course, it still remains to be seen how soon that would be, but, with Rogers almost at it, this fall seems like a good guess.

In addition to bringing the 4G goodness to its customers, Bell is also expected to launch at least two LTE devices in the coming months.

They would be the recently unveiled Galaxy S II with LTE, and the LET-enabled Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablet PC, the same devices that will be released at Rogers as well.

Apparently, Bell is striving to become the second wireless carrier in Canada to start offering 4G LTE services, this being the main reason for which it would aim at firing the network up before the end of the year.

Telus and Sasktel are other two wireless carriers in Canada interested in the deployment of LTE networks in the country, yet they will make the move only next year.

As stated above, Bell has yet to confirm any plans regarding its upcoming LTE network, as well as any details regarding the devices that will land in user's hands with this connectivity option on board, so stay tuned for more on this.
