Good news, Toronto. In just a few short weeks, you will be among the fastest cities in the world when Rogers lights up LTE in the city. Starting on September 28, you will have access to the fastest mobile technology in the world, starting with the launch of Rogers LTE Rocket stick that you can plug into your laptop to access top speeds.
Later this year, Rogers will offer an LTE device that will be capable of maximum theoretical download speeds of up to 100 Mbps on the Rogers LTE network. Today, devices are capable of maximum theoretical download speeds of up to 75 Mbps and Ottawa LTE customers are experiencing typical download speeds ranging from 12 Mbps to 25 Mbps. This is significantly faster than the speeds Canadians experience on any other wireless network today. As device selection evolves, maximum theoretical download speeds on the Rogers network will increase to up to 150 Mbps.
Rogers has a great line of LTE devices coming this fall which includes: the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE smartphone; the LTE Rocket mobile hotspot (Sierra Wireless AirCard 754S); Rogers LTE Rocket stick (now available in Ottawa); an LTE tablet from a leading manufacturer; and the previously announced HTC smartphone. Stay tuned. We’ll let you know more details about devices as soon as we can.
But you don’t have to wait to sign-up for any of these great LTE devices. Starting today, Rogers customers in Toronto and Ottawa can register for their LTE wireless devices through the new Rogers Reservation System at www.rogers.com/lte.
Buckle up, Toronto – the future of fast is here.
