As part of the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN) project, Rogers has today announced the expansion of its 5G network to reach more residents and businesses across 10 new communities throughout Eastern Ontario.
Today’s announcement is part of a $300 million partnership between the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, EORN, and Rogers to bridge the digital divide and bring reliable wireless connectivity across Eastern Ontario.
Rogers 5G is now available in the following new areas:
- Greater Napanee
- Mississippi Mills
- South Glengarry
- South Stormont
“Rogers’ network expansion will give local residents access to better cell services that will help support economic growth and improve quality of life,” said J. Murray Jones, Chair, EORN. “We appreciate the support of our federal, provincial and municipal partners in helping us close the gap in mobile services.”
“We are proud to be part of this partnership to improve connectivity in Eastern Ontario. With today’s announcement, residents and businesses in ten more communities can now connect to our award-winning 5G network, so they can access the latest technology and help drive growth and prosperity in the region,” said Ted Woodhead, President, Eastern Ontario, Rogers Communications.
“The Ontario government is working together with service providers, the federal government and municipalities to expand access to reliable wireless services that families and businesses in Eastern Ontario need and deserve,” said Kinga Surma, Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure.
This work is part of Rogers’ ongoing commitment to expand service and improve connectivity for underserved communities, including more rural and remote regions in Ontario.
Rogers recently announced it is investing $140 million to expand its network of fibre-to-the home technology in Eastern Ontario, servicing more than 20,000 homes and businesses in Quinte West, Belleville, and Prince Edward County.
