Rogers announced today that its LTE service is now live in more cities in the greater Toronto and Vancouver area. Rogers says that its 4G network will cover 30% of the Canadian population by year's end. Cities in the Toronto area that are now covered include:

  • Mississagua
  • Brampton
  • Vaughan
  • Richmond Hill
  • Markham

And in the west:

  • West Vancouver
  • North Vancouver
  • Port Coquitlam
  • Delta
  • Langley
  • Surey
  • Maple Ridge

Sounds like it's time for you all to treat yourself to the Galaxy S II LTE, HTC Raider, or the HTC Jetstream LTE.

I have some friends in Vancouver not really friends they seem to use iphones or old flip phones Im trying to convert them but those Canadians are stubborn

keithz says:

It's not that we're stubborn. It's that Android phone selection at the carriers has been horrible until recently. That and there's 3 year contracts. Nobody's switching phones for a long time.

Also, it's not the iPhone but Blackberries that are popular in Canada. Mostly because of BBM.

I never thought I would see my hometown of Richmond Hill on a tech website.

IceDree says:

I didn't know that you guys also cover LTE news (outside the US) , In this case : STC , Mobily & Zain launched LTE in Saudi Arabia about 4 months ago

Congrats to all Rogers's users who happens be to be LTE coverage

Endgadget reported that att has lte working in san francisco bay area. (unofficially of couse.) They even had screen shots of 30 mbps down and 18mbps up. I think that story is more news worthy than this story... they tested it and mentioned two different att lte android phones.

Kcaz says:

If you're talking sheer numbers, 30% of a country's population having LTE by year's end may be more newsworthy than att testing in the Bay Area.
