Yesterday we posted news that Rogers was going to light up a certain portion of Montreal with their “Beyond 4G” LTE network tomorrow, this will bring customers faster data speeds. The initial coverage is limited but will include Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, Montreal and St.Laurent. One of our readers was passing by a Rogers location and noticed this signage, which basically states that “the world’s fastest wireless technology is now available”. In typical Rogers fashion they boldly state “Une Autre Primeur”, or translated in English, “Another First”. Rogers does note that “LTE devices will be capable of maximum theoretical download speeds of up to 100 Mbps on the Rogers LTE network”, but “typical download speeds ranging from 12 Mbps to 25 Mbps”.
We were also informed that Toronto and parts of Vancouver will be turned tomorrow as well. Pretty exciting stuff and we’ll have more info soon!
