Rogers has announced on Thursday its 5G network has expanded in Ontario to five new communities: Windsor, Quinte West, Strathroy-Caradoc, Parry Sound and Nipissing.

“We will continue to invest in our networks across the province while partnering with innovative players to advance next-generation technology, and working with government to support reliable connectivity for all Ontarians, no matter what part of the province they live in,” said Jorge Fernandes, Chief Technology Officer, Rogers Communications, in an issued statement.

The company’s 5G wireless network now reaches 70 communities in Ontario, while Rogers says it will “improve wireless connectivity to a total of nearly 300 Ontario communities by year end.”

In July, Rogers invested $3.3 billion in Canada’s 3500 MHz band spectrum auction for 5G, which it says will allow for coverage of 99.4% of the Canadian population.
