Rogers Set To Launch LTE In More Cities Throughout Canada By October 1st

Carrier Rogers Communications in Canada has just announced via their RedBoard blog that the company is getting ready to flip the switch on more locations throughout Canada with LTE service. Rogers Communications has plans to cover at least 60% of Canada with their LTE service before the end of the year. We are getting to the end of the year really fast, so Rogers is going to need to work fast. With trying to reach that goal, Rogets has taken a rather large step towards it and is launching the LTE service in the following locations that should be available no later than October 1st:

  • Kingston
  • Edmonton
  • Quebec City
  • Oakville
  • Burlington
  • London
  • Kitchener
  • Waterloo
  • Cambridge
  • Barrie

Rogers Communications has indicated that a lot of customers experiences speeds on their LTE network are hitting around 12 to 40 MBps. Apparentlly it’s supposed to offer a theoretical speed of 100 MBps, which we haven’t seen happen yet. Rogers has claimed that they offer the largest selection of LTC devices and handsets in Canada with a whole lot more to be added to their lineup.

Is anyone excited to see Rogers Communications expanding so fast? Having a goal of covering 60% of the Canadian population by the end of the year is quite a step, and a step that is going to make a lot of customers really, really happy. Do you live in Canada and have a 3G device? Is anyone of these LTE additions going to encourage you to purchase a LTE handset?
