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

Rogers LTE now in 18 new marketsWhew! Our engineers and technicians must be exhausted! They’ve just completed the rollout of an impressive 18 new Canadian markets and now, our LTE network reaches nearly 60% of all Canadians. Rogers was the first carrier 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.

Rogers LTE launching in more cities October 1

Rogers LTE launching in more citiesOh the difference LTE makes. Many of you have already told us how LTE has transformed your digital lives. And with some of the most exciting and hottest devices of the year coming to Rogers soon, we wanted to let you know we’ll be bringing Rogers LTE to even more cities by October 1.

LTE continues to roll out across Canada

We’re continuing to expand our LTE network at a fast pace, with a plan to cover approximately 60 per cent of the population by the end of the year. By October 1, 2012, we will launch in Kingston, Edmonton, Quebec City, Oakville, Burlington, London, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Barrie. Even more cities will launch in 2012 and throughout 2013. We’ll continue to keep you updated here on RedBoard. For a list of current, available Rogers LTE cities, check out our full coverage map here.

Why do we love LTE?

If you haven’t experienced Rogers LTE yet, here’s some of our top reasons why we love LTE speeds:

  • Stay connected with your family: Whether you’re away for business or out of town for the weekend, you can enjoy face time or video calling with your family at speeds you didn’t think were possible on a wireless device.
  • Work on the road: With an LTE Rocket stick, hub or hotspot, you can work on the road with ease. Send and receive large documents or conference call your colleague. With superfast LTE speeds, you won’t even realize you’ve left the office.
  • Entertain the kids: Use your device to stream videos and music in real time on those long road trips. Your kids will love you and you’ll enjoy a peaceful, quiet car ride for a change.

Get the highest speeds available

Rogers was the first to launch LTE in Canada and was the first to offer maximum network theoretical download speeds of up to 100 Mbps, available to the most Canadians, with typical experienced speeds ranging from 12 to 40 Mbps using an eligible device*. This means downloading apps, streaming video and music, storing files in the cloud, enjoying faster gaming experiences with virtually no delays or buffering, and even hosting wireless video conferences, can all be done on your smartphone, at speeds similar to what you would experience on your computer.

Not only that, we have the largest selection of LTE devices in the country and we continue to add devices to our LTE lineup all the time.

Keep checking back with us to see the latest of what Rogers has to offer on LTE!
