Being north of the border can sometimes be a blessing and a curse for most Canadians. With regards to technology, it’s mostly a curse. We find ourselves having to wait on a handful of companies to bring the best technology to us, which usually ends up being a monumental task, and costly adventure given our vast real estate to cover, much smaller population, and stricter Government policies.
Rogers Wireless is one of the major players in Canada wide mobile technology, and thankfully, they’ve began testing with 4G in Ottawa, Ontario. Rogers Communications Inc also stated that they have already been working on Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless technology and will soon expand this across the nation.
As this is just a trial, customers won’t notice any changes in their current wireless services until Rogers is confident in its stability. The great thing about this however, it’ll mean new devices with 4G coming to Canada…the HTC EVO 4G would be nice. Regardless, we can be sure to see a big marketing campaign when it is ready for launch. There’s 2 things Rogers Communications Inc is good at, first, getting our money, and second, marketing.
Will you grab 4G as soon as it comes out Canadian customers? You can be sure they’ll get my money for that. Let us know in the comments!
