Rogers’ Portable Internet reaches 152 communities

8 Apr 2008

Rogers Communications has announced in a press release that its Portable Internet wireless broadband internet service has expanded its coverage to 55 additional communities to reach 152 urban and rural locations across Canada, completing the rollout conditions of its spectrum licence. The footprint includes 56% of the Canadian population and 45 cities. Portable Internet is available for CAD49.95 (USD49.30) per month (plus modem purchase of CAD99.95), for a connection with download speed of up to 1.5Mbps and 256kbps upload. The service utilises the Inukshuk pre-WiMAX wireless broadband network built under a joint venture between Rogers and Bell Canada (which covers a similar footprint to Rogers under the brand names WiMAX Unplugged and In-home). Bell Aliant also markets Bell Canada’s wireless broadband services over the Inukshuk network to customers in its eastern Canadian coverage areas.
