Rogers expands its 4G network with $80-million enhancement of coverage in the Maritimes

Rogers Communications is investing $80 million to enhance its wireless voice and data network in the Maritimes.

This investment will boost wireless service in the region by providing Rogers’ 4G HSPA+ coverage one million more people across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island, a 130-percent increase over current population coverage.

This two-year project is the latest in a series of investments in the area and one of the largest to date by Rogers in the Maritime region. The investment will see the company’s 4G network cover 94 percent of the Maritime population. 

“Maritimers told us they wanted better coverage, faster speeds, and a greater selection of mobile devices,” said Rogers President for Atlantic Canada, Ken Marshall. “With this investment, customers all across the Maritimes can fuel their passions by switching to Rogers and connecting—in high speed, on the device they want—to what matters to them most. The freedom and choice enabled by the expanded Rogers network will change the way we live and work here. In more places than ever before, the Rogers enhanced 4G HSPA+ network will be readily available, making communications better and easier for new and existing Rogers’ customers in the Maritimes.”

Rogers will begin its nentwork enhancement this month and will continue through 2012.
