After unveiling their 4G LTE service in Ottawa a few months back, Rogers is spreading their next-gen network to three new cities and detailing plans for the release of their first compatible tablet and smartphone offerings. Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver have all received their taste of LTE love, bringing high-speed cellular services to a large portion of the Canadian population. Along with the new cities, a promotional plan was announced that provides users with 10GB of LTE data per month for $53 as part of a three-year contract.

Plans for the release of Rogers’ first LTE smartphone and tablet were also announced. The HTC Jetstream will debut for $500 on a three-year contract or $800 without, matching the top-dollar price the tablet commands on AT&T’s network in the States. The 4G slate features identical specs to its US counterpart including a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon and 32GB of internal storage. The Samsung Galaxy S II LTE will also be available, sporting a 4.5-inch display and dual-core chipset. It will be priced at $200 on contract or $650 outright. Both devices will be available October 18th.
