This two-year multi-million dollar project is the latest in a series of major investments in the area and one of the largest to date by Rogers in the Maritime region. The investment will see Rogers 4G HSPA+ network expand to cover 94% of the Maritime population. Customers across all parts of the region will benefit from faster data speeds and stronger signal strength. They will also be able to take full advantage of the latest devices including Android, iPhone, BlackBerry and tablets.
"Maritimers told us they wanted better coverage, faster speeds and a greater selection of mobile devices," said Rogers President for Atlantic Canada, Ken Marshall. "With this investment, customers all across the Maritimes can fuel their passions by switching to Rogers and connecting - in high speed, on the device they want - to what matters to them most."
"The freedom and choice enabled by the expanded Rogers network will change the way we live and work here," said Marshall. "In more places than ever before, the Rogers enhanced 4G HSPA+ network will be readily available, making communications better and easier for new and existing Rogers’ customers in the Maritimes."
Rogers begins work on its enhanced Maritime wireless network this month and work will continue through 2012.
The $80-million dollar investment is part of Rogers’ ongoing commitment to delivering leading edge networks to Canadians coast to coast. In April, Rogers announced a multiyear deployment of its next generation technology - Long Term Evolution (LTE) - that will enable unparalleled connectivity, giving customers a mobile broadband experience similar to what they currently experience at home and at work. Rogers’ customers in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa will experience LTE this year, expanding to a total of 25 cities by the end of 2012. [June 3, 2011]
