“Weâ€™re committed to LTE. Weâ€™re committed to deploying it and itâ€™s going to be a multi-year deployment.”
What is LTE? As defined by the Rogers Redboard:
LTE is fourth generation â€œ4Gâ€ wireless technology that allows significantly more data to pass through a wireless network atÂ faster broadband speeds. For our customers, LTE will truly enable a world defined by data, providing a true broadband experience for HD video streaming, gaming, communications, transactions and other connected experiences through mobile Internet.
Good news for Canadian mobile junkies.Â However, this announcement is better suited as reassurance for investors that Rogers continues to invest in its future. There was no wordÂ yet on when it will be commercially available, or what devices and cities will get it first.
LTE networks and devices are years away from becoming mainstream, but it’s great news that Rogers diving into the mix.
Thanks for the email, Miranda!
