Rogers has today announced the launch of its new wireless home internet service across more than 100 communities in Southwestern Ontario, including areas around Halton Hills, St. Catharines, and Niagara Falls.
Rogers wireless home internet service leverages the company’s expansive wireless infrastructure to deliver broadband to the home. Select towers are equipped to support the increased usage, and small antennas are set up on customer’s homes and positioned towards the towers to transmit the signal.
Rogers Internet 25 wireless service is available with download speeds of up to 25 Mbps with plans starting at $69.99 CAD for 100 GB of data usage per month.
“With wireless home internet, Rogers can reach more Canadians in smaller, rural communities that today either have no or limited broadband options, making it easier to work, study and socialize from home,” said Rogers SVP Eric Bruno.
“Today, access to reliable broadband is a necessity for Ontario families – especially in our rural communities,” said Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and MPP for Oxford. “It is fantastic to see this initiative by Rogers, which will help connect more people in remote and rural areas with home internet service and provide more opportunities for employment, education and communicating with friends and family.”
Last week, Rogers announced its plans to bring broadband services to the communities of Drumbo and Gobles in Oxford County in partnership with Southwestern Integration Fibre Technology Inc. (SWIFT).
