Earlier this month, Freedom Mobile announced it was set to launch its LTE network in Prince Rupert this summer.
Ahead of its launch, Shaw’s wireless carrier has turned on its LTE signals, according to iPhone in Canada reader, Kris.
According to Kris, Band 4 3G is available, along with Band 4, 13 and 66 for LTE.
“Hey Prince Rupert, Freedom is coming!” said the company in early May, adding, “Our affordable #BigGig plans and fast Extended Range LTE are coming your way soon. #YouDeserveFreedom”
Other summer expansion plans in B.C. from Freedom Mobile include Prince George and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Alberta will also see summer launches from Freedom in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat.
