Rogers To Begin Testing LTE 4G In Canada


rogers-wireless1It looks like Mr. Rogers doesn’t want Verizon to be the only kid in the neighborhood touting their LTE 4G progress today. In a press release, the Canadian carrier announced a comprehensive LTE trial alongside Ericsson in hopes of unlocking, “lightning-fast HD video streaming, gaming, communications, transactions and other connected experiences through mobile Internet.”

The testing will take place in Ottawa utilizing recently acquired AWS spectrum. Keep in mind this is LAB testing so there really isn’t any idea when Rogers customers will, or even if they will, enjoy 4G LTE. The company has been leading the way in terms of Canadian data network speeds, being first to light up HSPA+ in North America last year so lets hope their pioneering ways continue.

Feel free to check out the press release and the company blog post for more info.
