Rogers Responds To Telus With An Announcement About LTE

Telus recently announced that they were rolling out a 4G network in March. I wondered at the time if Rogers would move up their timetable for their LTE trials that they had previously admitted to and turn it into a full blown rollout. Today I got my answer via an e-mail that directed me to a post on Rogers Redboard:

Well today, we took a major step forward with the announcement that we are beginning a multi-year deployment of LTE wireless technology in 2011.

It’s clear that the world’s wireless products and networks are evolving to LTE and we’re pleased to lead in bringing this technology to Canadians.

Interesting. There were very few details as to exact timing, but I would expect to see further announcements shortly. The only thing I have to say is that I hope that the benefits of LTE are not overshadowed by low data caps as that would be totally craptastic.
