We have some great news from Rogers customers in Northern British Columbia!
This week, Rogers completed their 21Mbps wireless data network roll out in Northern British Columbia! As many know, Rogers (and Fido) were the first to achieve 21Mbps wireless download speeds in North America.
The initial 21Mbps roll out covered the majority of the major Canadian cities and urban areas, but more recently, Rogers has been focusing on expanding the network in the northern areas of Canada. While the iPhone cannot (yet) achieve 21Mbps network speeds, users will slightly benefit from the speed jump.
As of this week, 21Mbps is now live between the Prince Rupert to Prince George corridor and Prince George to Cache Creek corridor. Note that 21Mbps refers to peak download speed. Actual speed may vary based on handset, topography and environmental conditions, network congestion and other factors.
