in News, Rogers, Rogers Communications, LTE

Canada's Rogers Communications will introduce LTE in 44 markets this spring and intends to reach a total of 95 markets in 2013. Rogers will also be making its 2600 MHz LTE spectrum band available in all markets. 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.

According to operator 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 faster speeds. Rogers will announce more 2600-enabled smartphones in the coming months. Current Rogers 2600-enabled devices include the LG Optimus G 2600, the Rocket Stick, Rocket Hub and the Rocket Mobile Hotspot.

In the coming months operator will be rolling out the 44 markets and growing its lineup of LTE and 2600 enabled devices.
