Rogers Becomes First North American Carrier to Offer LTE Roaming [Update]


Rogers has announced it has become the first carrier in North America to offer LTE roaming to its customers. The bilateral LTE roaming agreement has led to a partnership with 3 Hong Kong, enabling Rogers customers traveling to the city with a 2600MHz device to roam on LTE:

“Rogers was the first carrier to launch an LTE network in Canada and today we are adding to our proud history of innovative firsts by being the first carrier in North America to launch LTE roaming,” said Raj Doshi, Rogers Senior Vice President of Products. “We know that Canadians travelling, whether for business or pleasure, want access to their device, email, documents, and the Internet. By offering LTE roaming, our customers can stay connected while travelling at the same blazing fast LTE speeds they experience in Canada on the Rogers wireless network.”

Hong Kong marks the first city setup as part of Rogers’ LTE roaming, with numerous other countries to come throughout 2013.

Update: International roaming prices are the same as what you see on the Rogers website, and currently the only devices supported are the LG Optimus G 2600 and Rogers Rocket Stick.

    Am I missing something? Rogers still charges the same amount for roaming here, right? In which case, the last thing you want is LTE, given how easy it is to rack up a thousand dollar bill.

    Is this some kind of sick joke….

    Mr. Rogers lives in delusional universe. $4/Mb? They’re nuts. If they charged $4/Gb, they’d have some takers – maybe.

  • Worst rates I’ve ever seen. On LTE, I can download 1 MB in less time than it took me to type this sentence. Worst of all, they promote this as a “feature”? More like a kick in the balls.

    Mr. Rogers is dead. Just sayin’. All the carriers bend you over and give it to you. Especially in Canada.

    They have week passes as well. Data bucket travel plans are never worth it. When I go to the US I always get a 1 day or 1 week data travel pack. They go from 10mb to a few gb….

    unlocked phone, rogers can stick their buckets up their asses

    How about some LTE in Winnipeg Rogers???? Before you worry about roaming

  • gtasscarlo

    Switch to mts or bell.

    I hope you all have T-Mobile SIMs for your visits to the USA; $2 a day for unlimited data, texting and calls (it’s 2G, but WHO CARES, it’s much more than 99% cheaper than what Rogers is advertising, what person who wouldn’t invest in an unlocked phone could afford this insanity? What person who could?).
