Bell Brings New Pair-Bonded Speeds to Ontario and Quebec
Bell is releasing enhancements to their GAS Residential FTTN service effective May 8, 2017. As a result, new pair-bonded speeds will be available in Ontario and Quebec.
- Up to 25 Mbps downstream / up to 1 Mbps upstream
- Up to 50 Mbps downstream / up to 10 Mbps upstream
- Up to 100 Mbps downstream / up to 10 Mbps upstream
To support this new service, specific Broadcom chipsets will be required in bonded xDSL modems, which are now available at Gentek.
The SR552N uses the Broadcom 63168 chipset, which is required for Bell’s new pair-bonded speeds. The xDSL SR552N includes 5x Gigabit Ethernet ports, high-power (400mW) 802.11n 300Mbps Wi-Fi, and a variety of other features designed around ease of deployment.
The SR555AC uses the Broadcom 63138 chipset, which is required for Bell’s new pair-bonded speeds. The xDSL SR555AC has similar features to the 552N, plus it also offers dual-band 802.11ac, and SmartRG AccuBeam™ technology along with other advanced features.
The SR665AC also uses the Broadcom 63138 chipset, making it compatible with Bell’s new pair-bonded speeds. The xDSL SR655AC is a flexible, high-performance VoIP device and includes 2 x FXS ports. Blazing fast Wi-Fi performance and high-availability options make the SR655AC the front-runner for Internet Service Providers.
