Rogers Lights Up LTE Network In Toronto On September 28th

I got an e-mail from “my best friends at Rogers” with the news that LTE is coming to Toronto in late September:

“Starting on September 28, you will have access to the Rogers LTE network. At launch, the Rogers LTE Rocket™ stick will be available so that you can plug into your laptop to access top speeds.  Today, LTE devices are capable of maximum theoretical download speeds of up to 75 Mbps and Ottawa LTE customers are experiencing typical download speeds ranging from 12 Mbps to 25 Mbps. Later this year, Rogers will offer an LTE device will be capable of maximum theoretical download speeds of up to 100 Mbps. As device selection evolves, maximum theoretical download speeds on the Rogers network will increase to up to 150 Mbps.”

So Toronto citizens who were a bit ticked that Ottawa got LTE first will get some LTE love shortly. As for devices, Rogers had news on that as well:

“And new LTE devices are coming to Rogers soon. Later this fall, more LTE devices will be available such as: the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE Smartphone; the LTE Rocket™ mobile hotspot (Sierra Wireless AirCard® 754S); Rogers LTE RocketTM stick (now available in Ottawa); LTE Tablet from a leading manufacturer; and the previously announced HTC Smartphone. More details about these devices will be available closer to launch.”

If you want to score yourself an LTE device, surf over to www.rogers.com/lte. If you’re not in Toronto or Ottawa, Rogers will be heading your way eventually. When I get news, I’ll post it here. But for now, check out the details on Redboard.
