Good news for Canadians in the Maritimes: Rogers will invest $80 million to expand the 4G HSPA+ network in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. This will mean better signal strength, faster downloads and more device selection to nearly 1 million more Maritimers, representing a 130% increase over the current population coverage.
By the time work is complete, Rogers 4G HSPA+ network will cover 94% of the Maritime population meaning people in these provinces will be able to get their hands on the latest devices including Android, iPhone, BlackBerry and tablets, all with faster data speeds and stronger signal strength.
When will upgrades begin?
We’ll begin work on the wireless network later this month. New coverage areas will be announced throughout the construction period, which will continue throughout 2012.
If you live in the Maritimes, what new devices are you interested in getting?
