Rogers’ LTE reaches Calgary, Halifax

3 Apr 2012

Canada’s Rogers Communications has expanded its LTE network to two new cities, Calgary in the west and Halifax in the east, which it said brings its LTE footprint to a population of nearly twelve million, as it pursues a plan to cover almost 60% of the Canadian population by the end of the year. Since launching LTE in Ottawa last summer, Rogers has expanded the 4G mobile broadband network to cities including Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. As part of its eastern expansion, in addition to Halifax, Rogers recently launched LTE in St. John’s, Newfoundland. In the west, Rogers plans to introduce LTE in Edmonton in the coming months, while it aims to launch LTE in a total of more than 25 additional cities across the country this year.

Rogers’ current LTE device line-up consists of two smartphones, a smartphone-tablet hybrid, two tablets, a USB modem and a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. This month, Rogers will launch the first Windows LTE smartphone – the Nokia Lumia 900 – and another LTE-enabled smartphone, the HTC One X.
