Rogers has announced plans to bring wireless coverage to over 1,000 kilometres of unserved highway corridors across Canada.
As part of this plan, the company’s wireless network investment of $100 million over five years will deliver high-speed LTE wireless service to remote locations so our customers can stay connected and Canadians can reach local emergency responders.
The company is investing in its wireless network to bring more seamless service, increased economic opportunities for residents and businesses, and improved public safety.
The Rogers network will provide essential emergency wireless coverage to all Canadians so they can access 911, regardless of their carrier. In 2018, Rogers connected nearly three million Canadians to essential 911 services during critical times of need.
This plan builds on the $2.8 billion invested in infrastructure in 2018 to bring Canadians world-leading technology, and will take advantage of the federal government’s Accelerated Investment Incentive, announced last fall.
While Rogers connect rural and remote parts of Canada, it continues to deliver a state-of-the-art wireless network. Through its 5G multi-year network plan with Ericsson, Rogers is ensuring Canadians will be at the forefront of emerging technologies.
