Rogers announces HSPA+ expansion in Maritimes

Rogers Communications

Rogers today announced that it will spend CA$80 million over two years to extend HSPA+ coverage to almost one million more people across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. By the time it is completed, 94% of the Maritime population will be covered.

“Maritimers told us they wanted better coverage, faster speeds and a greater selection of mobile devices,” said Rogers President for Atlantic Canada, Ken Marshall. “With this investment, customers all across the Maritimes can fuel their passions by switching to Rogers and connecting – in high speed, on the device they want – to what matters to them most.”

“The freedom and choice enabled by the expanded Rogers network will change the way we live and work here,” said Marshall. “In more places than ever before, the Rogers enhanced 4G HSPA+ network will be readily available, making communications better and easier for new and existing Rogers’ customers in the Maritimes.”

The expansion will begin this month and will continue through 2012.
