Rogers Launches LTE Max and Expands 4G Deployment

Rogers has launched LTE Max, a premium network made up of dual frequency 2100 MHz and 2600 MHz bands that enables the fastest speeds in Canada for a premium wireless internet experience.

Coincidently, the BlackBerry Q10, which makes its Canadian market debut on May 1st, is optimized for the Rogers LTE Max Network. The Q10 has been making the rounds at various BlackBerry events including a live demonstration on April 30th at the Rogers Centre, where the Toronto Blue Jays ended a four game losing streak with an exciting 9-7 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

There are also several communities that will be enjoying the Rogers LTE network coverage for the first time starting on May 1. In fact, many will be enjoying the first game of the Maple Leafs versus Boston Bruins Stanley Cup playoff series, on their favourite mobile device.

In Ontario, Rogers will be making its blazing fast 2600 MHz LTE spectrum band available in Milton, Sarnia, Woodstock, Orangeville, King City, Bradford, Georgetown, Halton Hills, Kentville, Brantford, Collingwood, Stouffville, East Gwillimbury, Clarington, as well as St. Catharines, which also includes Fort Erie, Port Colborne, Welland and Pelham. The residents in Lloydminster, AB will also have LTE access.

Rogers reports that by the end of 2013, a total of 95 new markets across Canada will be served by its LTE network.

    It’s worth noting that even though they claim to now cover Fort Erie, they actually don’t have coverage in the main part of the Town of Fort Erie.

      In Ridgeway, you only get is south of the water tower. Doesn’t seem to be deployed north of the water tower at all.

        Yeah, I was down on Pettit yesterday in an area that shows having LTE coverage on Rogers’ map and I didn’t get it until I was closer to Walmart on the Garrison where coverage is supposed to end. I then held onto that LTE signal well into the main part of town, but I’m in that same area today and only have HSPA. They must still be tweaking the network.
