LTE speed just keeps on comin’! Rogers rolls out 18 new markets

to introduce LTE in Canada and in many of these markets, we will be the only LTE provider.

18 new markets, from West to East:

Here’s where you can now access Rogers LTE across the country:

  • British Columbia: Victoria, Abbotsford, Kelowna
  • Alberta: Edmonton
  • Saskatchewan: Saskatoon and Regina
  • Ontario: St. Catharines/Niagara, Oshawa/Pickering/Ajax, Windsor, Sudbury, Kingston, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, London, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Barrie
  • Quebec: Quebec, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières

LTE is also already available in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and surrounding cities, Calgary Vancouver and surrounding cities, as well as on the East coast in St. John’s and Moncton.

What does LTE mean for you as a Rogers customer?

  • Faster speeds! But don’t take it from us. Check out results from our LTE speed test contest and, while you’re at it, take a peek at how Rogers stacks up against the competition in a test by readers of the iPhoneinCanada blog, where the fastest speed was recorded by a user on the Rogers network in Brampton Ontario.
  • Even better access to data: since we first launched our Ottawa LTE network in July of last year, we’ve seen an 80% increase in data usage, and we expect wireless Internet usage on our network to grow six-fold by the end of 2016.
  • Increased mobility: according to Cisco, by 2015 more smartphones will be connected to the Internet than home computers. And the traffic generated from these on-the-go devices will exceed traffic from wired devices.
  • The largest selection of LTE devices of any Canadian carrier: among others, we’ll soon be carrying a unique version of the LG Optimus G that operates on the 2600 MHz spectrum, making it Canada’s fastest smartphone. The LG Optimus G will kick things into high gear with maximum theoretical LTE download speeds of up to 100 Mbps. On Rogers LTE customers will experience typical experienced speeds ranging from 12 Mpbs to up to 40 Mbps.**

Check out our LTE coverage map here and be on the lookout as we continue to expand our LTE coverage, adding additional markets this year and in 2013.

**As device selection evolves, speed capabilities will continue to rise on the Rogers LTE network as customers will be able to benefit from maximum theoretical network speeds of up to 150 Mbps. See for full details on Rogers LTE network coverage.

    Hi Michelle,

    Any idea when you will roll out LTE in Stouffville, ON? I love my iphone 5 but only being able to use 3G at home is disappointing; especially since if I drive ten minutes south to Markham I can enjoy the benifits of LTE.

    Thanks in advance!


    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi Nick,

      We don’t have any info to share at that time but we’ll definitely keep everyone posted.
      In the meantime, you can also check our coverage map for updates:

  2. brdz

    I’m in Kingston and my GS3 is still on hsdpa with a LTE sim card. ;/

    1. brdz

      nevermind it’s working now

  3. Kyle

    Yup, in Summerside in Edmonton – rocking LTE!

  4. Dan

    Rogers needs to get LTE in Milton, ON. LTE is live like two intersections away from where Milton begins, but not in the city itself.

    1. Tim

      Regarding Milton, I’m in Mississauga near Britannia and 10th Line and LTE is almost nonexistent here. A few blocks south, it’s much stronger. LTE coverage overall seems quite spotty and the coverage map is not reliable. I wish we had a timeline of when LTE coverage in existing markets is going to be improved.

  5. Travis

    Do I need a special LTE data plan to get the faster speeds? Or can I just upgrade to an LTE phone and stay on my current (2 year old) data plan?

  6. Adrian

    Good to see LTE is up and running in Hamilton ahead of schedule. I was previously told it would be live by the end of the year.

    Good show Rogers!

  7. Colin

    *sigh* and still nothing in Manitoba.

    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi Colin,

      More cities will come by the end of the year, including Winnipeg.

  8. Ryan Dejaegher

    Hey how’s it going? I’m from Regina and I don’t seem to be getting LTE. I’m currently seeing 3G inside our university which typically has bad reception could this be the reason?

    1. Corey

      I work in downtown Regina smack in the middle of where LTE is supposed to be working. However, you have to be standing outside for it to work. As soon as you go in a building it falls back to 3G. I would have rather seen Rogers upgrade the GSM areas to 3G rather than the tiny area of 3G that was poorly upgraded to LTE! I’m embarresed to tell people here in Saskatchewan my cell provider is Rogers ;(

  9. Brooke Wray

    Fido is on here in Victoria today and I am happy to see the great speeds.

    Well done Rogers!

  10. Matthew

    So LTE is “launched” in many new markets yet many of those new markets are very poorly covered. Look at Saskatoon and Edmonton as examples. Maybe half of the cities covered with huge holes in the coverage. I’m glad that Rogers isn’t the painting crew doing my house. Whole sections of my wall wouldn’t be covered and they would be trying to tell me they think its fine to show people the new colors in my house.

    1. Christopher Phillips

      I’m quite disappointed with the LTE coverage in Edmonton as well. I can only assume it will be a number of months until the “holes” are plugged.

      1. RogersElise

        Hi guys. We’ve read your comments re: coverage in Edmonton. If you look at the map on, you’ll see that some parts of the city are announced as “coming soon”. Our goal is to have the city covered by end of 2012.
        You can always look at that map to see updates to our coverage.

      2. Christopher Phillips

        When dealing with Rogers, “Coming Soon” can mean tomorrow, or it could mean next year. Thank you for the clarification however.

  11. Dawson

    Downtown Edmonton right now, 1 bar for LTE. Is that normal?

  12. Jeff

    Unfortunately I live in London in a spot where I’m on An island where LTE is all around me but is not in our neighborhood about 4 blocks total . Just a question why is it that happens and I am wondering if Rogers is trying to fix it or if they are aware?

  13. Eric

    Hi I’m in Kitchener with an lte plan with an lte SIM card and device and still cannot connect to the LTE network ?

  14. Jason Bennett

    I am in Woodbridge, I show LTE service, but I only get 1 bar of reception on my iphone & ipad, why is the signal so weak there?

  15. xt

    LTE just showed up on my gs3 in Hamilton.
    It is wayyy faster but why is it using more data. I did a few speedtests and it racked up 200mb in just 3 tests. That is insane and I would be interested in rhe reasoning. Other than putting me over my 6gb limit.

    1. Speed tests adjust the amount of data used for the test based on the speeds that are being achieved, speed tests are more accurate if they take a certain amount of time to complete, too short of a test would result in a very inaccurate result. If the speed test notices that the test completed in 3 seconds because the download speed was very fast, it starts the test again with a larger file size so the result will be more accurate.

    2. Silent

      Because everytime you do a speedtest, it downloads and uploads at whatever speed it can get. you get 25mb a sec speed, that means you just tested 25mb… so 3 tests at 25mb a piece, and then upload of say 8mb each… your at near 100mb for 3 speed tests

    3. Jamie

      The more data usage isn’t because of LTE per se. Speed test uses a lot of data per test. You should curb using it too much to stop from going over data usage fees. Also contact the dev of that app as I do think the faster your data is the longer it runs the test for until it levels out. But yeah it will take seconds to run a test on lte so you’ll be made to believe you’re using more data when in fact you’re running multiple tests instead of just the one on 3G in the same time

  16. xt

    LTE just showed up on my gs3 in Hamilton.
    It is wayyy faster but why is it using more data. I did a few speedtests and it racked up 200mb in just 3 tests. That is insane and I would be interested in rhe reasoning. Other than putting me over my 6gb limit. …….

  17. Eric

    Spoke with techsupport customer serive none of them was able to help me and now they changed stuff around on my account and because of that I am not even getting ANY data

  18. Dan

    Too bad I still only get 1 bar of cell and virtually no data in my Pickering neighbourhood…:( Be wanting to kill my home phone, but cant without better coverage in my zone

  19. Christopher Phillips

    Really disappointed at the spotty LTE coverage in Edmonton. Neither my home in the west end, or workplace at 142 Street and 118 Ave are included in the coverage.

    1. S5

      Mine as well, it sucks how only about a third of edmonton has lte coverage when other companies have ALL of Edmonton + surrounding areas covered. Rogers has no love for western Canada.

      1. none.. Lets hope it gets fixed soon.. I am taking a savage beating from my virgin mobile and telus buddys! This company has been amazing to me for 13 yrs. Don’t stop now!!

  20. Looks like only about 50% of Edmonton has LTE coverage, I hope it doesn’t cause any issues when switching back and forth from LTE to HSPA/UMTS.

    I have noticed some weird things happening today though, getting multiple of the same text message come through after driving around the city, doesn’t happen if I don’t enter an LTE area.

  21. Madcatz

    If I am clearly covered by LtE on the map but I’m not receiving LtE should I contact Rogers? Maybe a tower isn’t working? I’m in London

    1. RogersElise

      Hi there. I’ll be contacting you privately to look into this.

  22. allan

    I have the USA/Canada 1GB One-Rate data plan… is this compatible with LTE?

    1. RogersElise

      Hi Allan. Good question! I’ll get back to you on that one.

  23. John

    The coverage in Edmonton is just sad. Half the city doesn’t have LTE. What’s the ETA on having LTE for the ENTIRE city.

    1. RogersElise

      Hey John, just to mention I replied to your question above. ETA is end of 2012, and you can look at our map on to see the updates.

  24. Omar

    The LTE in West Edmonton and north edmonton is spotty at best. 2 bars if it even registers. Since 9am had LTE for maybe 10 minutes max. A bit embarrassing when te telus iPhone next to me is on LTE

  25. Mark

    I live in the NE corner of Cambridge and ive bean looking forward to using lte with my HTC one X phone. In my car on the driveway I get 2 bars of signal strength and a download speed of 25Mbs, not bad. But in my house it drops to 1 to 2 bars and 10Mbs. When I go into the basement I no lte at all… but I get a full 5 bars on 4G! As I planned on using lte mostly in my basement I hope Rogers either turn up the signal strength or put up another tower in my area. As it is lte is almost useless for me at home.


  26. Max

    Any known issue for launch day? Even outside, with 5 bars, in different parts of the city shown as LTE covered on the website, I can’t get LTE, only 3G.

    Was only able to get it once, steady, with only 2-3 bars and speeds weren’t that good.

    I’m in Quebec City. Thanks.

    1. RogersElise

      Hi Max, no issues to my knowledge yesterday.I will contact you privately to look into this.

  27. Ben

    Hi there,

    I’m in Guelph and my iPhone 5 now shows as picking up an LTE signal… Guelph wasn’t on the annouced list… What gives? Obviously not complaining… Just curious and hoping it’s here to stay… So far seems to be faster or as fast as wifi.

  28. Jim m

    North Burlington. Dundas and Appleby
    No lte on my s3. Wt heck!!!

  29. Greg

    No plans for Manitoba at all? Really? Winnipeg is left out, but Saskatoon has it?

    1. RogersElise

      Winnipeg should be covered by LTE by the end of the year.

      1. Greg

        That is amazing! Thank you

      2. Greg

        The reason I ask is that Winnipeg isn’t shown as ‘coming soon’ on your coverage map… if Winnipeg will be live by the end of the year, maybe you should update the map?

        Thanks so much. Looking forward to LTE!

    2. Calvin

      Oh of course not.. Neglected Winnipeg is the only major city IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY without LTE now, & no “coming soon” on the map either, not even a ETA. As all the Rogers reps saying Oct 1 to me were clearly wrong, again. The regional carrier for Manitoba even has LTE & in the tiny town of Brandon too!

      1. Greg

        I thought it was odd that Winnipeg was the only major city without any planned LTE as well… it’s crazy. Elise above says that we should have it by the end of the year (December 31 I assume)… but I have been told information in the past by Rogers that didn’t every materialize… so I’m not holding my breath. The issue I see is that the Rogers reps here sold the new iPhone based on it’s increased speed on the LTE network… which we don’t have!

      2. RogersNicolas

        Hi Greg,

        It’ll indeed arrive by the end of the year. More info here:

      3. Greg

        Thanks Nicolas. I appreciate the information.

        I’m really looking forward to seeing LTE materialize in Winnipeg.

  30. Hilton

    Why is there coverage all around kelowna then in my neighbourhood crawford there is no LTE at all?

    1. RogersElise

      Is you neighborhood among the “coming soon”areas you can see on our coverage map @ ? Then it will be coming by the end of the year.

      1. Calvin

        So “coming soon” means that generic “by the end of the year” thing. You & Rogers is saying Winnipeg = “by the end of the year”. Is Winnipeg marked as “coming soon” on that coverage map?

        No. Anything else?

  31. Jay

    Dissappointed that I am with Rogers and LTE is not available here in Belleville Ontario but both Telus and Bell have LTE here! Go figure!

  32. Jason

    Hi i live in Barrie. LTE was enabled as of today but i have to say the reception is the worst i have ever seen. I get 1 to 2 bars max in most areas with LTE enabled in my city. When i turn of LTE and run on 3G i am instantly up to 4 or 5 bars. With the reception so bad my cell phone will die or lose power in other words a lot quicker then any of my previous IPhone i have owned. The signal is spotty all over no matter what city i have been in with LTE enabled. I called tech support and they were no help at all. It would be greatly apreciated if these comments did something for everyone. On top of it all majority of the time my cell phone will stay on 3G and wont even detect the LTE network when enabled. ROGERS WE ARE LOYAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE ISSUES SOONER THEN LATER AND DONT DISAPOINT US ALL, WE DO DESERVE BETTER. Please and thank you.

    1. RogersElise

      Hi Jason. I’ll let the teams know.

  33. Chris

    Hi, can’t tell if my s3 is getting LTE in south side edmonton, just says 4g. but speeds are still low at 5mbps , any help?????

    1. RogersElise

      Hi Chris. When you’re on the LTE network, you phone shows LTE where it usually shows 4G. Edmonton is not 100% covered and you can check the coverage on

  34. Jim m

    3.03 mbps download. Speed. Very disappointed

    1. I have done testing and got almost 50 mbps down and almost 19 mbps upload, I’d say you probably aren’t on LTE and if you are then there is something wrong either in your area or with your phone, I personally like to test in several areas of the city to make sure.

  35. Dan Berman

    Hey guys – when will Milton, Ontario be getting LTE? It cuts off right at Milton on 3 sides now. C’mon guys just a few more blocks!

  36. crak

    Why dotn they start out with major cities then worry about lesser cities first?

    Ie: Winnipeg, Halifax, St. Johns, etc.

    1. Calvin

      Cause its evident Rogers doesn’t really care about getting HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of customers on first, rather than small towns that weren’t even on the list. Most should be satisified now, only Winnipeg continues to be neglected without an ETA.

  37. xt

    Why has my data usage almost doubled since going to LTE.? I am doing my regular usage and at this rate I will b over my data limit in no time.

  38. Owais

    However the person at the RogersPlus store was not able to explain the DSRF and the ADSRF (aka cancellation fees) to me. She wasnt familiar with the ADSRF fee at all.
    On Sept 28,12, I signed up for a new 3 yr term on my iPhone 5 64GB. what portion is DSRF and ADSRF on the $470 economic enducment

    Based on what i read on the Rogers Contract and what i read on another post on the DSRF replaces the cancellation penalty for Voice plan and ADSRF replaces the cancellation fees for Data. However, i am unclear how much of the $ 470 total economic enducement is DSRF and what is ADSRF. According to the agreement DSRF is there on all term agreements with rogers irrespective of if Data is included or not. ADSRF is described as an “additional” fee on top of DSRF and is only applicable if one has a term on a data plan as well.

    Rogers CSR told me that even if I was to only cancel Data on my account and keep the 3 yr term on my voice plan I would face a penalty of the full $470 even if I was to increase my voice plan to the same $ value as my combined data and voice plan today. This contradicts with what I am reading on the agreement i signed. Can you please explain this further?


    1. Rogers_Chris

      Owais, we can help on Twitter @RogersHelps or at – please reach out to us through those means so we can help by accessing your account and speaking privately.

  39. Asten

    I am located in Barrie and I saw LTE maybe for a split second twice between yesterday and today. This includes the south end and east end Outdoors where we should see full bars. This will be very disappointing if it stays this way after all of the Rogers hype. Other carriers are already covering this area… while charging similar plan rates..

  40. Omar

    The LTE coverage map for Edmoton is like a great game of follow the high income postal codes and Nisku?!

  41. Jason

    Thanks it would be greatly appreciated if something was done.

  42. Andrew

    I’m sitting in Kingston right now and there is no LTE coverage at all. Just 3G (and terrible 3G at that).

    Nice to make the announcement – sounds great. But in reality, there is little to no LTE here at the moment, nor has it been since it “launched”.

  43. Kevin N

    Can’t believe Rogers doesn’t offer lte in winnipeg yet. I’m ready to switch providers.

  44. Kyle

    LTE in Sudbury ON literally covers 1/4 of the city. I have seen it pop up on my phone once so far and I have been all over town. What’s worse is that I have actually been on Edge most of the time since LTE has gone live. I get 1 max 2 bars on 3G now too. What’s going on? I used to always have all bars on 3G. My phone is essentially useless as far as data connection goes. Please help. Also my phone is dying quickly because its always searching for a connection.

  45. Corey

    Edmonton’s coverage is brutal. About 40% of the city and zero outskirts. I waited months for this and it , meanwhile Bell covers the entire city and a ton of the outskirts.

  46. Kyle

    I just looked at the coverage map for LTE in my area. It says I live in the centre of the LTE coverage area but yet my phone will not connect or detect it. I’m using an iPhone 5. I have already been sent one replacement phone from apple, same issues as before. I think the map is off maybe?any ideas anyone?

    1. Rogers_Chris

      Hey Kyle, reach out to us for tech support issues @RogersHelps on Twitter or

  47. Tamara

    Hi I just want to report that LTE service in Barrie has been a terrible experience so far. My IPhone 5 usually struggles to pick up the LTE signal and stays on 3G. Now when my signal does switch over to LTE it either cuts back to 3G after a short period of time. My cell phone reception also is down to 1 bar once connected to LTE but is almost full signal on 3G. Is there anything being done to fix these problems of service in my city of Barrie?

    1. Rogers_Chris

      Hey Tamara, have you spoken to us to troubleshoot your device?

  48. Bob

    I live in greater Victoria and am not yet on LTE…still shows 4g???

  49. Jonathan

    I’m in montreal an I keep losing the internet signal i’m rarely on lte otherwise it shows 3G and sometimes i just get disconnected from the network(just happened 30 seconds ago while reading comments….) my iphone4 was slow but at least i always had some internet on it…

  50. Rob

    I am currently in an area on the coverage map that says LTE is available but no LTE on my phone. I have an iPhone 5 and since the LTE rollout in Edmonton at no time have I had anything other than 3G and even that only gets 3 bars in most parts of the city. So much for my LTE device. Thanks Rogers!

    1. Rogers_Chris

      Hey Rob, if you’re not able to connect to LTE network, reach out to us @RogersHelps on Twitter or at

  51. Soka

    Really.. Pickering, Ajax and Oshawa but no Whitby? :-(

  52. Jordon

    Hi I live in Oshawa and I’m clearly in the coverage zone in the map yet I have 3 bars of 3G.
    It hasn’t changed to LTE yet on my iPhone 5

    1. Rogers_Chris

      Hi Jordon, reach out to us @RogersHelps on Twitter or at

  53. Craig C

    LTE rollout in Victoria is a joke…. Device only shows one bar and when I go to dial a number, I’m kicked off the system and lave to redial under 4G. I know it’s not my Raider as I’ve checked it in VanCity on many occassions. Now I’m only showing 4G service. Sounds like we here in Vic are getting the same crap as in Edmonton….

    1. I don’t think Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is implemented yet so your phone has to switch back in order to make the call happen, you will notice that happening when you receive an incoming phone call.

  54. D

    On the Roger’s coverage map it shows where i’m living in Edmonton has LTE ,however; I still see 3G on my phone?

    1. Rogers_Chris

      Hi D, we’ll be happy to help you troubleshoot if need be – reach us @RogersHelps on Twitter or at

  55. Tony

    Is LTE down, or having serious issues? I’m in Mississauga/Oakville area. I thought I read on HOFO that it may be down??


    1. Rogers_Chris

      Hi Tony, everything should be working fine – but if you continue having technical difficulties, reach out to us @RogersHelps on Twitter or at

  56. F Lee


    I can’t pick up LTE in downtown Toronto on my iphone 5, only 3G. It’s been like this for two days. Is there currently a problem?

    1. Rogers_Chris

      Hi F Lee, if you’re having technical difficulties, reach out to us @RogersHelps on Twitter or at and we’ll be happy to troubleshoot.

  57. A.

    I think it’s humerous that Rogers stopped posting comments on this story once it became evident that LTE isn’t ACTUALLY in the specified cities. It’s in very select parts of the cities listed. Nice job, Rogers. Yet again…

  58. Brian Hogg

    I was very happy to see LTE come on early on October 1, exactly as advertised. This was great, until I noticed on October 2 that my iPad was no longer connecting to LTE. Not only that, it’s unable to connect to 3G, apparently.

    I live close to downtown Kitchener, and I use tethering from my iPad pretty extensively. Halp?

  59. Tamara

    Yes I have talked to techniquel support with no real help. I have tried resetting network settings, turning off and on the phone along with many other things. It seems like LTE was rushed in the city of Barrie or that the service is just not reliable at all at this time. Is anything being done in this area on the network to better the signal and service?? I am not the only one having these issues, I know about ten other individuals having the same experience in Barrie even when within a few blocks from the cell towers.

  60. Joey

    When will Winnipeg get 4G LTE?

    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi Joey,

      Stay tuned, Winniped will get LTE by the end of the year. We’ll keep everyone posted!

  61. Rick

    I really want to upgrade to an LTE phone but it’s hard to justify when there’s such awful coverage in rural areas in Sask when I travel. I’m finished 2 of my 3 year contract and it will still cost the price of the phone, a $156 “early upgrade fee” (I thought Rogers smartphone customers were eligible after 2 years with no early penalties?) , a $35 hardware admin fee, plus taxes AND a new 3 years commitment only to be stuck with crappy coverage.

    I’m better off buying a phone outright, it’s getting harder and harder to stay with Rogers when they won’t even improve the basic infrastructure to make phone calls in the Sask area.

  62. Cameron

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I have spoken with tech support regarding the lack luster LTE coverage in Hamilton, ON. They suggested I troubleshoot my new iPhone 5 to no avail. It seems to me that this is a problem on Rogers end as I visited Toronto prior to the expansion and had no problems with LTE service. Also, based on the comments from several posters on this site, it appears my LTE problems are not unique. I’d like to know what Rogers is doing to rectify the situation currently, and who I may speak with to seek compensation for this critical interruption in service. I resigned a 3 year contract with Rogers specifically because a rep assured me a level of service on par with or potentially superior to Bell in this region. As a customer of Rogers Wireless for over 10 years, I’m very disappointed and feel that I was mislead. To me this represents a disgraceful level of professionalism and blatant disregard for the interests of your loyal customers. I kindly request a representative from Rogers contact me at his or her earliest convenience.


    1. Rogers_Chris

      Cameron, this is not a customer service channel. Please reach out to us @RogersHelps on Twitter or at, or through other means listed at

  63. Duston foster

    Still no LTE coverage in Niagara .. Even though it is stated on the website . Coverage ends in St. Catharines :(. Not in Welland or port colborne or just about anywhere south of st Catharine’s

  64. Bob

    I live in Greater Victoria and still haven’t gotten LTE??? Is it establish only in Victoria proper and if so, why?

    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi Bob,

      LTE is on in Victoria, BC. You can find our coverage map here:

  65. LfsiF

    So we have the capital cities of every province lit up but NB and PEI?
    With both Government and universities in both cities ,does it not make sense to bring LTE here?
    Longing for speed in Fredericton….

  66. Ian

    Rogers LTE in Edmonton is PATHETIC

  67. I must say I am a little disappointed, Rogers has always been ahead of everyone else when it comes to wireless technology and now it has fallen behind the others. Yeah technically Rogers had LTE first in Canada but it does not mean anything, you have to lead the race for more than the first lap if you expect to win and just because you are on in the pole position doesn’t guarantee you will finish first either. I have been looking at the coverage maps for the big 3 carriers and I cannot believe that Drayton Valley has better LTE coverage (on the other guys) than Edmonton has. I believe the slower roll out probably has to do with the other guys only built their UMTS/HSPA network a couple years ago and the newer equipment was probably much easier to transition to LTE as it was probably specified in the initial roll out of that network.

    I am happy that Rogers still leads the way in that they offer number AND name caller ID (CNAP), something that the other 2 carriers chose not to implement for some reason and currently it is the #1 reason I stay with Rogers, I hope it continues to be available when VoLTE is active.

  68. Bob

    Here it is October 11 and the Victoria LTE still isn’t working (except for about 15 minutes last Saturday)!!! What’s going on???

  69. John

    Still no LTE in Victoria… Not downtown. Not in Oak Bay. Not at the Jubilee, Not at Uptown…

    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi John,

        stopped in at a Rogers retail outlet and they told me my SIM card was not compatible with LTE – not sure why they sold me a Galaxy NOTE last year with a no-LTE card. But, the salesperson swapped out my card for a new LTE-compatible SIM and now I get LTE in Victoria!!

        Maybe this will help others who wonder why they can’t pick up LTE in their neighbourhood.

    I see that the new LG phone supports 2600mhz. Does that @eans the Rogers LTE network support all devices with 2600mhz, or just the LG phone?

        FWIW, when 3G was launched here, the coverage map showed us on edge for a couple moths after 3G was turned on. The coverage map certainly does not tell us what is coming in this area.

    Can someone please give me an ETA on Welland ontario

    I wish I could get 3G in Milton. LTE would be a bonus. The driveway is officially my office, I must find that one sweet spot and don’t move. Seriously Rogers everyone knows what you’re up to. Please remember word of mouth advertising is the best form of advertising. It’s noticeably working pretty bad for you now because we all know now that you’re pocketing the money without providing the services that we all are paying for. Get those towers up!!! Oh yeah I got the whole run a test bs and customer service knows nothing about it. STOP POCKETING ALL OUR HARD EARNED MONEY AND PROVIDE THE SERVICES WE ARE PAYING FOR.

    I just asked at a Rogers store near me and they said that LTE won’t be rolled out in Winnipeg until 2013 due to delays. Is this true? Are the articles on here incorrect?

      We don’t comment on rumour or speculation, Phil.

      1. Phil

        Not really speculation. They said they were told that in their bi-weekly meeting. I guess only time will tell…

    I live in Grimsby Ontario does the Let network reach my area? It’s between Hamilton, and St.Catherine’s…

      You’re at the edge of 2 LTE areas:
      We’ll keep you posted if there’s any news on that end.
