Hey, Moncton, are you ready for speeds faster than a University of Moncton student can scarf down a plate of poutine during frosh week? Rogers LTE network is now live in Moncton, making Rogers the first carrier to offer the fastest wireless network technology in New Brunswick. Rogers has invested $20M in its wireless network in New Brunswick and with today’s news, further expands Rogers LTE network in Atlantic Canada, adding to cities including Halifax and St. John’s.
Monctonians can now experience the power of LTE technology. Whether it’s families using faster connections to stay in touch through video calling, students downloading large files or businesses travelers experiencing faster speeds on the go, our customers tell us LTE is improving their lives. Starting today, Moncton customers will have access to the Rogers LTE network with theoretical download speeds of up to 75 Mbps, with typical download speeds ranging from 12 Mbps to 25 Mbps. * These speeds are significantly faster than those Canadians experience on any other 4G HSPA+ wireless network.
Moncton is the latest city in Rogers’ continued LTE network expansion. Rogers will add a number of new cities from coast to coast to its LTE network with the plan to cover approximately 60 percent of the population by the end of the year. Upcoming LTE launch cities include Trois Rivières, Sherbrooke, Quebec City, Kingston, Ajax, Pickering, Oshawa, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, St. Catharines, Niagara, Windsor, Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, London, Barrie, Sudbury, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Kelowna, Whistler, Abbotsford and Victoria. More cities will be launched in 2013.
Rogers offers the largest selection of LTE devices in Canada. Recent additions to the LTE devices include Sony’s first LTE smartphone – the Sony Xperia Ion - and Canada’s first LTE Rocket hub, a Rogers exclusive, that connect up to 15 devices simultaneously.
