The last time we heard anything about the Rogers Long Term Evolution (LTE) plans was back in February during an interview with Rogers EVP Network and CTO Bob Berner. At the time he boldly stated that “we’ll be the first in Canada to deploy it” and it looks like they just might. We received an email today that Rogers plans to launch LTE in “Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa in 2011” and then follow up with the top 25 markets sometime later in 2012.No word on exact dates.
LTE gives you the power the have download speeds of up to 150 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 70 Mbps. To make people aware that LTE is coming they have set up the “IwantmyLTE.ca” website. This gives info on what LTE is, when it’s coming to your area and even a contest with a grand prize of a trip to the 2011 Honda Indy.
