    Rogers Improves Wireless Services to prepare for 5g

    Looks like Rogers has started upgrading their wireless service, "Rogers says that these network enhancements are part of its multi-year plan to bring its customers Gigabit LTE and 5G speeds. They also said “multi-year national network plan to bring next generation wireless services to Canadians, including gigabit LTE network and 5G with future-ready technology and equipment that is based on the latest global 3GPP standards, including 4×4 MIMO, four-carrier aggregation and 256 QAM.”

    The follwing areas have recived upgrades in the past couple months

    Yeah that’s nice and all, but what about filling in all their coverage gaps??!! When are we going to see this “densification” plan of theirs start to materialize?

    True. I would still want them to work on 5g and get faster speeds and reliability out there first. Which they seem to be trying. Coverage gaps, I don’t see a point in. Rogers/Fido EXT makes up for those gaps. Last month I drove from Vancouver to Edmonton and EXT was amazing. So if they already have a deal in place, why waste money adding towers in rural areas?

    Sure, EXT works fine out west. Come hang out with me in southern Ontario...I’m not even talking about “rural” Canada

    Interesting, I swear DevinRabey is from the east coast, maybe not southern Ontario. But his ext seems to work fine. Maybe he can chime in.

    What about NW Ontario ? Rogers/TBayTel is mostly 3G, Bell roaming is LTE, but doesn't cover all areas either.
    AT&T... your world, throttled.
