Next month we will celebrate the one year anniversary of LTE in Canada. In July 2011, Rogers was the first to bring LTE to Canada with the launch of our network in Ottawa. Today, many city launches later, we offer LTE to 12 million Canadians and will cover 60 per cent of the population this year. We introduced even faster LTE speeds as the first to launch LTE devices that work on both the 1700/2100MHz and 2600 spectrum offering typical download speeds of up to 40 Mbps and maximum theoretical download speeds of up to 100 Mbps.* We’ve made exciting progress and the journey continues as we continue to expand our network and launch more LTE devices.
Many of you have told us that you love LTE and that it’s changed your digital lives. We want to hear your stories! In 100 words or less tell us how LTE has made your life better for a chance to win one of the following LTE devices:
- A Samsung Galaxy Note
- A Samsung Galaxy 8.9 LTE tablet
- A Samsung Galaxy SIII 16GB or,
- A Sierra Wireless LTE Hotspot Prize Pack including a Sierra Wireless LTE hotspot, backpack, water bottle and jacket.
Has LTE transformed your gaming experience? Allowed you to live stream sports in a way that was only a dream not that long ago? Made downloading music and movies so fast that it’s freed up time for other things and reduced your stress levels? Has it improved your business or given you flexibility to do more on the go and improve your bottomline? We are looking for specific examples.
We’ll be selecting the top 8 finalists and publishing their entries on RedBoard on June 28th. From the 8 finalists, we’ll be doing a random draw for 4 winners. For full contest details and rules, go here.
