Way back in January, Rogers announced a 2600Mhz LTE roaming agreement with carriers in Hong Kong and South Korea. This was the first of its kind for North America and today Rogers expanded LTE roaming into Switzerland. According to a press release, Rogers and Swisscom have agreed to a bilateral LTE roaming agreement that will see their subscribers experience 2600Mhz LTE speeds while travelling. If Hong Kong, South Korea and Switzerland are not on your travel itinerary this year, Rogers noted plans to launch “LTE roaming in additional countries in 2013,” but didn’t communicate which countries are slotted in.
In May Rogers unveiled new international roaming packages that bucked the trend and gave a tiny bit of additional data.
