Through a province-wide network sharing agreement with MTS, Rogers is bringing LTE Max to Manitoba.
Starting June 17th, Rogers will roll out its premium LTE network that enables theoretical network speeds of up to 150 Mbps to customers in Winnipeg, Brandon, and Grand Beach with Victoria Beach, Selkirk, Steinbach and Ste. Anne getting activated later in the year.
This is part of Rogers plan to expand to 44 markets by spring, and 95 in total by the end of 2013, from coast to coast in Canada.
"Manitoba is an important region for Rogers and we are committed to further enhancing the wireless experience for our customers in the province. With this agreement we will deliver capital and operating savings to our business allowing us to re-invest in our customers and our network, particularly in Western Canada which is a priority market for us," added Rob Bruce, President of Communications, Rogers.
Bruce said the LTE Max service would also go live on June 17th in three Quebec communities: Baie-Comeau, Hull Expansion, and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.
Residents in Medicine Hat, Alberta will also gain access to LTE Max, while those in Grand Prairie, AB will get 4G LTE services.
