Rogers has invested $20M in its wireless network in New Brunswick and with today’s news, further expands Rogers LTE network in Atlantic Canada, adding to cities including Halifax and St. John’s.
Below is the coverage map for Moncton:
Rogers plans to cover approximately 60 percent of the Canadian population by the end of the year with their LTE network. Once again, they noted upcoming LTE launch cities: Trois Rivières, Sherbrooke, Quebec City, Kingston, Ajax, Pickering, Oshawa, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, St. Catharines, Niagara, Windsor, Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, London, Barrie, Sudbury, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Kelowna, Whistler, Abbotsford and Victoria. 2013 will bring even more expansion cities.
With the next iPhone reportedly being announced on September 12th, all signs point to an LTE-enabled phone. With Rogers, Bell and Telus quickly expanding their LTE networks, it looks like Canada will be prepared for faster networking just like it was for the new iPad.
