Expanding to the east, the Rogers LTE network is now live in St. John’s making Rogers the first carrier to bring the fastest wireless speeds in Canada to Newfoundlanders. We’re now offering LTE to a total of 11 million Canadians and we’ll double our coverage this year with plans to expand to more than 25 cities in 2012, including Halifax and surrounding areas.
