Could Fido be jumping on the LTE bandwagon?

LTE growth in Canada has really picked up this past year with all the major carriers joining the party. Rogers, Bell, Telus and most recently Virgin Mobile have all launched their own 4G Networks in the last twelve months. If Canadian tech site MobileSyrup is correct, and it normally is, Fido (a Rogers sub-brand) could be next to offer LTE services up North. An anonymous tipster armed with their trusty blurrycam (of course!) sent in the above screen shot from the Fido employee system and it clearly shows the option to add ‘LTE Voice and Data Sharing Bundles’

I’ll definitely be filing this particular story as a rumour for the time being as there’s no official statement from Rogers or Fido. If it turns out to be correct it’s great to see yet another LTE option in Canada, this UK based writer is still patiently waiting for the UK’s first LTE network!

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.
