Rogers Begins Deployment of 21Mbps HSPA+ Network

Posted July 28, 2009 at 7:39pm by iClarified
Rogers Wireless today announced it has begun the Canada-wide deployment of a 21 Megabits per second (Mbps) high-speed HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access Plus) wireless network, following the successful expansion and doubling of speed of its high-speed network to 7.2 Mbps last year.

Starting in August, Rogers will progressively increase wireless network download speeds up to 21 Mbps in the Greater Toronto Area, and expand quickly over the coming months to other cities across the country. Rogers Wireless customers - who today already experience the fastest wireless data speeds in Canada - will experience peak wireless download speeds that are as fast as any available in the world. Rogers is the first wireless provider in North America and only the sixth carrier in the world to launch HSPA+ at peak speeds of 21 Mbps, putting Canada on top of the world in technology and innovation and once again, bringing leading-edge technologies to Canadian consumers first.

"With the exponential growth of smartphones, application stores, mobile Internet sticks and embedded laptops and netbooks, Canadians are embracing wireless data and services like never before," said Rob Bruce, President, Rogers Wireless. "The super-charged data speeds achieved with Rogers' 21 Mbps upgrade will enable us to support more customers with the most innovative mobile services well into the future, while our customers will experience mobile broadband at speeds like what they experience at home and at work."

Deploying network speeds of up to 21 Mbps launches the next evolution of Rogers' HSPA network with technology recognized as HSPA+. The 21 Mbps network capability will be complemented with the launch of a 21 Mbps capable Mobile Internet stick in the same timeframe. With its coast-to-coast HSPA network, which is proven to have the best reliability in Canada and is currently three times faster than other competing wireless networks, Rogers continues to remain at the forefront of offering customers best-in-class and first-to-market technologies and products.
