Ongoing network investments will improve wireless service along key corridors including in Halifax, Bedford and Hwy 101 near Bridgetown

Rogers is improving wireless service in parts of Nova Scotia including on Joseph Howe Drive in Halifax, Damascus Road in Bedford and on Highway 101 between Annapolis and Bridgetown. Rogers and Fido customers in these areas will have a faster, more reliable and consistent wireless experience than ever before.

“Our customers want high quality wireless access wherever they are, whether it’s working on the go while commuting, travelling to visit family and friends, or even just using their device in their own backyard,” said Troy Harnish, Interim President of Atlantic, Rogers Communications. “These wireless enhancements not only connect customers in Nova Scotia to the moments that matter most in their lives today, but they also prepare our network for tomorrow.”

With these network investments, Rogers and Fido customers, including business customers in Nova Scotia will be able to connect to more of the things they love, whether that means streaming a sporting event, downloading work documents, posting on social media or even just chatting with friends.

Rogers is currently working on a multi-year program to bring 5G to Canadians. In 2018, Rogers announced plans to launch a national LTE-M network to enable the next era of IoT solutions in Canada, as well as a 5G research partnership with University of British Columbia, and a national infrastructure agreement with Ericsson.

Earlier last year Rogers completed live 5G testing at Rogers Centre and is currently testing 5G global standards. Rogers continues to upgrade its 4.5G network with the latest 5G-ready technology to be ready for 5G commercial deployment.

Rogers is also the telecom provider for Halifax’s Nova Centre with free Wi-Fi for visitors, making it one of the most connected and high-tech business spaces in the region.
