Rogers Wireless and Fido launch Moto G with 4G LTE

Motorola Moto G with 4G LTEWe knew that Rogers and Fido would launch the Moto G with 4G LTE sometime this month. If you were eagerly awaiting its debut, there is good news today. It is now available from both carriers.

Moto G LTE is designed for all the things you want to do — taking and sharing photos, watching videos, checking scores, getting directions, listening to music… you name it. Moto G LTE also gives you choices. Different interchangeable backs called Motorola Shells2 can be switched out to reflect your unique style.
