Canadian Rogers Communications, which is the first company to bring LTE to Canadians, is investing approximately US$2.2 billion in wireless capital investments. "We're proud to have been the first to offer the fastest wireless network technology to our customers," says John Boynton, Rogers’ executive vice president.

 

"We continue to deliver fast Internet experiences by investing in our wireless network, And, based on what our customers tell us, our investments are paying off. Whether it's a family using faster connections to stay in touch through video calling, a student downloading large files, sports fans watching or a commuter maximizing travel time, LTE is making Canadians' lives better."

 

In July of 2011, Rogers launched LTE in the greater metropolitan areas of Ottawa, followed by Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and surrounding cities. So far in 2012, Rogers has rolled out LTE in St. John's, Halifax and Calgary to reach approximately 35 per cent of the population. The firm is continuing to expand its LTE network, expanding coverage in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Calgary and Vancouver, and adding a number of new cities from coast to coast with the plan to cover approximately 60 per cent of the population by the end of the year.

 

This summer, Rogers will launch new LTE devices, including Sony's LTE smartphone, the Sony Xperia Ion, and Canada's first LTE Rocket hub. The ZTE MF28B, which is exclusive to Rogers,  will connect up to 15 devices simultaneously.
