Canada’s Rogers Wireless unveiled plans to expand its LTE network, covering 10 additional cities by October 1st. By that date, the carrier’s 4G network will work in Kingston, Edmonton, Quebec City, Oakville, Burlington, London, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Barrie.
Rogers also pledged to cover approximately 60% of population by the end of the year. In other words, we expect even more announcements in the days and weeks to come, with the LTE rollout continuing in 2013.
The carrier 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.
