Toronto to get blazing fast internet to rival Google Fibre

Toronto is about to get some of the fastest internet on the planet according to Bell Canada, who announced today that it's installing a new service in the city that will rival Google Fiber. Bell has dubbed the project Gigabit Fibe, which is set to roll out this summer in Toronto.

The service will be made available to over a million residential and business users and will increase the top speed that Bell currently offers from 175 megabits per second to a whopping 940. Increased fibre optics infrastructure will be installed at over 50,000 locations throughout the city to make it all possible, which comes via a $1.1 billion investment from the telecommunications company.
