Rogers launches LTE network

High-speed mobile Internet offering is Canada’s first


Rogers has launched Canada’s first LTE (Long Term Evolution) network in Ottawa, with a rollout in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal expected this fall. The service is both faster and boasts lower latency than current mobile Internet offerings, making it a better replacement for interactive applications like gaming. Download speeds will at first have a maximum of 75 Mbps, though customers should typically see speeds of 12 Mbps to 25 Mbps. HTC and Samsung are expected to release LTE-capable smartphones later this year.
