Rogers Wireless announced today that it has become the first North American wireless carrier to deploy a 3.5G network. Customers will now be able to see download speeds up to 7.2Mbps (as long as their device supports HSPA).

“With Rogers’ 7.2 HSPA network, by far the fastest mobile network in Canada, Canadians can today experience even faster broadband download speeds on their cellphones, smartphones and laptops,” said John Boynton, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Wireless.

Rogers currently offers the following devices that support 7.2Mbps HSPA: The HTC Touch Diamond, the LG Vu T915, the Novatel MC950D Rocket Stick and the Novatel X950D Express card.

The Rogers 3.5G network is now available in over 25 markets in Canada. By the end of December 2008, Rogers expects that 75 percent of the Canadian population will be covered by its new network.
