And just like that Rogers LTE network now reaches 11 million Canadians. Rogers announced today that they have expanded their LTE coverage area in Montreal to now reach Laval, Terrebonne, Brossard, Longueuil and Vaudreuil. In addition, Rogers will be continuing their LTE expansion plans to reach “25 additional cities this year”. No word on what the other cities are, but their goal is to see LTE coverage reach 20 million customers “by the end of 2012”.
Rogers was first to launch LTE (Long Term Evolution) in Canada and brought peek download speeds that could potentially hit 150 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 70 Mbps (realistically it’s around 30 Mbps). LTE coverage is currently available in surrounding areas of Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.
