On March 31, 2011, Rogers Communications will launch its expanded reliable wireless voice and data network across the province. New customers will be able to switch to Rogers and have access to the latest cutting edge devices including iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and tablets. Existing Rogers customers will be able to upgrade to the latest devices and take advantage of the greater geographic reach which will now cover 96 per cent of the Manitoba population.
This major network expansion will both improve and considerably expand Rogers' wireless coverage in Manitoba. Rogers already offers service in Winnipeg and southern Manitoba and is expanding into Manitoba's northern communities while, at the same time, upgrading the existing Rogers' coverage footprint in Manitoba to high speed 3G+/HSPA+. The new network will significantly increase Rogers 3G+/HSPA+ coverage to service 96 per cent of Manitobans as it brings choice to many new markets including Thompson, The Pas, Flin Flon and more.

In addition to vastly improved quality of voice coverage, this new 3G+/HSPA+ network will provide Manitobans with mobile Internet service at download speeds of up to 21 megabits per second - the fastest speeds available in Manitoba. Rogers will bring to Manitobans, in several areas for the first time, cutting edge smartphones, tablets and mobile broadband devices as well as the opportunity for data sharing between devices.
Rogers will be using the new MTS HSPA network launching the same day, so coverage will be the same.

Rogers to bring LTE to MB customers with network sharing agreement with MTS

Winnipeg, Brandon, Victoria Beach and Grand Beach first markets to launch on June 17 with the fastest wireless internet in the country

Rogers Communications announced today it will bring Rogers LTE Max to customers in Manitoba through a province-wide network sharing agreement with MTS Inc. Starting June 17, 2013, Rogers will roll out LTE Max - a premium LTE network deployment that enables theoretical network speeds of up to 150 Mbps - to customers in Winnipeg, Brandon, Victoria Beach and Grand Beach. Rogers will continue to deploy LTE Max, expanding coverage to additional markets in 2013 with plans to reach more than 90 per cent of Manitoba's population over the next five years. This agreement builds on the network sharing arrangement Rogers and MTS signed in 2009 that resulted in the joint deployment of a 4G HSPA+ wireless network covering 97 per cent of Manitobans.

Under this LTE network sharing arrangement, MTS and Rogers will share the costs of deploying and operating LTE technology in Manitoba. The agreement further enables MTS customers to roam on Rogers wireless network when travelling outside of Manitoba.

Beginning on June 17, Rogers customers living in Winnipeg, Brandon, Victoria Beach and Grand Beach who currently use an LTE device with an LTE SIM will have access to Rogers LTE Max, enabling them to do more on their smartphone at blazing-fast speeds. Rogers will roll out LTE Max to additional markets in Manitoba this summer, including Portage la Prairie, Selkirk, Steinbach and Ste. Anne. All Rogers customers will continue to have access to Canada's largest selection of LTE devices and Rogers LTE Max, the fastest wireless internet in the country.
