Rogers has flipped the LTE switch in 18 new markets in Canada today. The carrier announced that it has launched LTE service in areas of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan. The expansion into new markets now means that Rogers covers 60 percent of Canada's population. The carrier announced last month that it planned to bring LTE to 10 new cities this month and cover 60 percent of the population by December. These new launches put Rogers ahead of schedule, and it's still on track to cover all of Canada's population with LTE coverage in 2013.
Here is Rogers' list of new 4G LTE markets:
- British Columbia: Victoria, Abbotsford, Kelowna
- Alberta: Edmonton
- Saskatchewan: Saskatoon and Regina
- Ontario: St. Catharines/Niagara, Oshawa/Pickering/Ajax, Windsor, Sudbury, Kingston, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, London, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Barrie
- Quebec: Quebec, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières
