Rogers Bringing LTE to Toronto, Capable Phones and Tablets By Year’s End


It’s a good time to be on Rogers. The Canadian carrier has rolled into Toronto with their LTE bus to let the ever-so-eager crowd know that LTE will be headed to their city starting September 28th. For the time being there is only one LTE device – an mobile hotspot – but they’ve confirmed LTE smartphones will make their way to store shelves by the end of this year, including the Samsung Galaxy S II, an LTE tablet and an LTE device from HTC. No word on plan pricing yet, but our friends at MobileSyrup have done everyone a favor and laid out the plans of for their hotspot devices in order to give us an idea of what to expect:

1.5GB: $45
3GB: $60
6GB: $75
9GB: $90
Each additional GB after 9GB is $10

I’m guessing there are many of yo who can’t wait until Christmas. [MobileSyrup]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Toronto Bringing LTE to Toronto? I LTE, therefore I am.

  2. @Quentyn I think you meant Rogers in the title.

    1. “I’m guessing there are many of yo who can’t wait until Christmas.”

      You forgot the u in you.

  3. Albany is also bringing LTE to Albany.

  4. This redundant title is redundant. I thought Toronto was gonna bring LTE to Vancouver.

    1. I think they meant: “Rogers Bringing LTE to Toronto.” Brain fade typo.

  5. Wow, I hope that the LTE smartphones won’t have the same pricing as the LTE hotspot device. That is bloody expensive!!! I mean $25 for 1GB is bad enough but $45 for 1.5GB is close to robbery.

  6. It’s never a good time to be on Rogers. Those rates are absurd.

    You want a speed boost from Rogers’ 3G network? Switch to Telus or Bell.

  7. I live in Ottawa and I’m already enjoying Rogers’ LTE here.

  9. Looking at those prices all as I can say is Thank You Verizon. I am very happy with Verizon, My Thunderbolt and their LTE Network. Thank You Verizon.
