As Toronto readies for the upcoming launch of Rogers LTE “Beyond 4G” network on September 28th, employees have started their official training. This is similar to the training that Ottawa experienced when they went live in the city in July. In the course introduction it states that “Without question, LTE is the future of wireless. It’s another first, and it’s only from Rogers”. Employees are getting familiar with “how to support LTE in your area, what’s required to receive LTE service and who LTE is ideal for”.
Other carriers such as Bell has stated they will launch LTE by the end of the year, TELUS and SaskTel are both on target for a 2012 rollout. In addition to the current Sierra Wireless LTE Rocket Stick, it’s known that we can also expect the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE, Sierra Wireless AirCard 754S, HTC Puccini and another HTC Smartphone.
There’s also no word yet on the Toronto coverage area, most likely it’ll be in the city core.
