rogers canada 4G LTE launch

Rogers Canada may be staying true to their words when they said earlier this year that they would be the first to launch LTE in Canada. Well, later this year, they will be launching true LTE network service in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and Ottawa, followed by more larger centers at the beginning of 2012.

As other carriers are touting that they have 4G networks, such as Sasktel and Telus, Rogers isn’t playing around with simply branding their current 3G network as 4G (like the other guys have done), they are going to bring us LTE download speeds of up to 150Mbps and uploads of up to 70Mbps. That will simply leave SaskTel and Telus’ “4G” (3G+ rebranded as 4G) in the dust for overall speeds. We may have a love hate relationship with @Rogers at times, but they do bring the best technology, it just seems to take them forever when compared to the carriers in the US. Let’s see if they can improve their customer service in their stores.
