It looks like things are about to speed up for our friends in the North—on Rogers at least. The Canadian carrier announced today that it has flipped the switch on LTE-Advanced in several markets throughout the country. Perhaps even better, Rogers is doing all of this on the 700 MHz spectrum, which should allow for greater penetration inside of buildings.
While U.S. carriers begin official sales and shipments of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 this week, the folks up in Canada will get their chance to get the 5.7-inch smartphone next week, via Rogers and Telus.

Following similar updates by some of the U.S. carriers, the first software upgrade for the HTC One M8 has started to arrive in Canada. We're seeing an update to version 1.55.631.4 on our Rogers M8, which adds the new power-saving feature alongside "camera and gallery feature enhancements."
Rogers just activated their fresh 700 MHz spectrum in a few regions across Canada. Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver are the lucky cities today, though we can expect a nationwide rollout eventually. 700 MHz has been widely described as “beachfront” spectrum that’s particularly good at penetration, so you can keep a signal in elevators and parking garages, for example. It also provides added...
Rogers has announced some new roaming add-ons for Canadian travelers.
