Rogers and Fido continue rolling out LTE

With the coming of October comes an announcement of expanded coverage of Rogers and Fido’s Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. New cities just added (according to the Rogers site) are:

British Columbia: Victoria, Abbotsford, Kelowna
Alberta: Edmonton
Saskatchewan: Saskatoon, Regina
Ontario: St. Catherines/Niagara, Oshawa/Pickering/Ajax, Windsor, Sudbury, Kingston, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, London, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Barrie
Quebec: Quebec, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières

Customers with LTE enabled devices (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S III, iPhone 5) can expect to get speeds from 12 to 40 Mbps. Rogers’ goal is to reach 60% of Canadian by the end of this year. Depending on the coverage in your area and the number of LTE devices using it you can get pretty good speeds, I know that in my area the LTE speeds are faster than my WiFi network.
