COVID-19 is causing many to work from their home and Bell is trying to assist with extra data.
Starting March 19th, the carrier is giving Turbo Hub, Turbo Stick and MiFi consumers, as well as small business customers, an extra 10GB of domestic usage.
Providing unlimited usage to all Turbo Hub, Turbo Stick and MiFi customers would put wireless network performance at risk during a critical time for Canadians. We sincerely hope the extra 10GB of data and $10 credit provide you with more peace of mind during this situation. (5/5)

Additionally, customers will get a $10 CAD credit on their existing plan for each of current and next billing cycle. However, any data charges before March 19th will still apply. MobileSyrup has reached out to Bell for clarification regarding how this credit will work.
MiFi, Turbo Hubs and Turbo Sticks are considered mobile internet devices that can provide internet to multiple devices at once. However, they work as hotspots, which means that people can use it anywhere they have a smartphone signal.
Most carriers, including Bell, are also waiving overage fees for residential Internet customers.
