Rogers has announced wireless service has expanded to the Sage Creek community in Winnipeg, one of the city’s fastest growing areas, located west of Island Lakes. The company collaborated with the Sage Creek Residents’ Association and local political leaders to erect the new cell tower, set to benefit residents and businesses in the area.
“We were pleased to work with the residents and businesses of Sage Creek, with the support of the municipality, to provide new and improved wireless service so that our Sage Creek customers can make and share more memorable moments with an improved network experience,” said Colin Bartlett, Director Prairies Region, Rogers Communications, in an emailed statement to iPhone in Canada.

Frank Capasso, President of the Sage Creek Residents’ Association said “Many residents don’t have landlines and depend on wireless coverage. Rogers has made our dream a reality, allowing us to make calls, including to emergency services if necessary.”
“I support improved cellular service in our community and am very excited to see progress on this front,” said Andrew Smith, MLA for Southdale. “I will continue to work with my constituents and other partners for improved wireless service in our communities.”
“It was a collaborative effort between Rogers, Qualico and Sage Creek residents to make this happen,” said Matt Allard, City Councillor for St. Boniface. “I wish to thank the City of Winnipeg planning department for their work and flexibility in adapting our cellular tower policy to the needs of the neighbourhood.”
Last October, Rogers expanded its LTE-Advanced network across Manitoba.
