“Our customers want wireless access wherever they are, whether it’s to keep in touch with friends and family, or do business on Vancouver Island,” said Perm Jawanda, Regional Vice-President, British Columbia, Rogers Communications, in a press release.

“That’s why we’re investing to make sure they have worry-free, reliable access to our great-performing network in more places. As communities across the province keep growing, we’re going to continue to improve service across British Columbia.”

Rogers also says it has turned on 700 MHz spectrum in these areas as well, allowing signals to extend further to harder to reach areas, such as basements, parkades, elevators and more.
