Bell Launches Unlimited Data Access For Wireless Connection Cards

 Bell has announced a new unlimited email and Internet plan for wireless connection cards, which provide
fast, secure and convenient mobile data access for laptop computers across Bell Mobility's national high speed data network.

"Demand for wireless connection cards has soared as businesspeople and consumers take their laptops on the road to move large business files, multimedia and other data," said Adel Bazerghi, Vice President, Products for Bell Mobility. "Combined with our new unlimited data plan, these cards allow clients on the go real freedom to access the Internet or connect to other networks quickly, securely, and from wherever they may be in our national network coverage."

Connection cards allow secure, on-the-go access to the Internet, email, network applications or corporate VPNs, fit into standard laptop card slots and are very easy to use:

- No wires, cables or phone jacks required
- No need to search for a Wi-Fi hot spot
- Speed is not shared with other users
- The connection is unique and secure
- Avoids costly hotel Internet usage fees

Bell's new plan offers unlimited email and Internet for $75 per month. For full details on the plan, visit bell.ca/connectioncards. Lighter-duty plans are also available beginning at $25 per month.

Bell offers the widest selection of connection cards in Canada, including models from major manufacturers such as Kyocera, Novatel and Sierra Wireless. These connection cards operate on Bell's high speed mobile network (EVDO Rev A), the fastest wireless data network available across Canada, offering peak upload speeds of up to 1.8 megabits per second (Mbps) and peak download speeds of up to 3.1 Mbps. About 70% of the Canadian population is already covered by Bell's high speed network.
