Bell confirmed it will complete the previously announced shutdown of its legacy CDMA wireless network on 30 April as its LTE network now covers more than 99 percent of the national population. Bell began winding down its CDMA network in 2017 as its national LTE coverage accelerated. Customers in remaining CDMA coverage areas in Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces were notified that they will transition to Bell LTE by 30 April.
