Rogers to expand LTE, Canada's fastest wireless internet to 44 more markets

Toronto -- Rogers Communications, Canada's leading diversified communications company, announced it will bring its LTE network, Canada's fastest wireless internet, to more Canadians across the country. Rogers will introduce LTE in 44 markets this spring and intends to reach a total of 95 markets in 2013, offering more wireless customers access to the world's fastest wireless network technology from coast to coast.

Rogers will also be making its blazing fast 2600 MHz LTE spectrum band available in all markets, and 34 of the 44 new LTE markets will be capable of maximum theoretical network speeds of up to 150 Mbps. This means Rogers LTE customers using a 2600-enabled device can do even more and have access to the fastest speeds available. Rogers has more LTE network deployed in the 2600 MHz spectrum band than any other carrier in Canada.

"We're thrilled to offer the country's fastest wireless internet to more Canadians over the coming months," said John Boynton, Rogers Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "Today, Canadians are more connected than ever and are using their wireless devices in a number of ways - for live streaming HD programming, downloading large files, streaming YouTube clips and music, or enjoying the latest game from their app store of choice," added Boynton. "The power of the network is critical to enabling these digital experiences, and with Rogers LTE, Canadians are getting more use out of their devices, at the fastest speeds available."

Among the 44 LTE markets launching this spring will be Saint John, New Brunswick; Medicine Hat, Alberta; Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario; Guelph, Ontario; Muskoka, Ontario; Collingwood, Ontario; and multiple cities in Quebec.

Rogers continues to offer the largest selection of LTE devices of any carrier in Canada and will announce more 2600-enabled smartphones in the coming months. Current Rogers exclusive, 2600-enabled devices include the LG Optimus G 2600, the Rocket Stick, Rocket Hub and the Rocket Mobile Hotspot.

"It is our commitment to offer customers the fastest wireless internet experience in Canada," added Boynton. "As we continue to invest in innovative and exclusive 2600-enabled devices, as well as the rollout of Canada's fastest LTE network and our 2600 spectrum, more Rogers customers will enjoy an enhanced, superior wireless experience."

In the coming months we will be rolling out the 44 markets and growing our lineup of LTE and 2600 enabled devices. For updates on our growing LTE network, visit
