What is HSPA or HSPA+ (4G)?

Contact us

Mobile network technology is constantly being improved, primarily to let you send and receive data faster.

HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) is a mobile telephony technology that allows for data transmission speeds up to 21 Mbps. HSPA+ (also called Evolved HSPA or 4G) is a further evolution of HSPA that offers data speeds of up to 42 Mbps.

You’ll appreciate the speed if you use the Internet or applications like picture and video messaging on your mobile phone or smartphone.

The HSPA+ (4G) network allows you to bring some mobile phones and smartphones to the Bell network.
Learn about bringing your phone to Bell.

1XRTT and EVDO are slightly earlier network technologies. Bell uses all these technologies in our networks, although different networks are available in different areas.
