Rogers, Fido LTE Network Expands to 14 Additional Markets Today

The Rogers and Fido LTE network has expanded to 14 additional markets today across the country to the following areas, according to our sources:

  • Chatham, ON
  • Milton, ON
  • Sarnia, ON
  • Woodstock, ON
  • Orangeville, ON
  • Brantford, ON
  • Collingwood, ON
  • St. Catherines Expansion (including Fort Erie, Port Colborne, Welland, and Pelham), ON
  • GTA North Expansion (including King City and Bradford), ON
  • GTA Northeast Expansion (including Stouffville and East Gwillimbury), ON
  • GTA West Expansion (including Georgetown and Halton Hills), ON
  • Oshawa Expansion (including Clarington), ON
  • Kentville, NS
  • Lloydminster, AB

The company says it will introduce LTE to 44 new markets this spring, with a goal to reach 95 markets coast to coast in 2013.

Fido notes their coverage map will be updated early in May. Let us know how those LTE speeds are if you’re part of the new coverage areas.

Update: Rogers tells us today’s update is of course also for their network and today is the launch of LTE Max, a faster “premium network made up of dual frequency 2100 MHz and 2600 MHz bands.”

  • Thank goodness Rogers is focusing on putting their LTE towers in booming metropolis’ like Sarnia, Ontario and Lloydminster, Alberta while Winnipeg, Manitoba, population 750,000 SITS IN THE BLOODY DARK AGES.

  • People live in Winnipeg??? who would of thought lol.

  • Don’t hate on the slurpee capital of the world, dude!

    THIS WAS A JOKE!

  • Anthony ?

    Finally we get LTE in Milton! Now to get a couple more towers built…

  • oh, no joke. I guess Rogers sees no competitive advantage in putting up LTE towers to compete with both MTS (horrible, horrible service and devices) and Bell (only LTE, useless outside of Winnipeg). Maybe Telus will be our saviour?

  • Maybe TELUS will activate LTE soon since they share the network with Bell.
