Rogers 4G LTE "Will They/Won't They" Saga Continues!

Sarumon Consults the Eye of Rogers on Canadian iPhone 3G Data Rates

So yesterday we linked to Zach Epstein's story over at BGR, the one about an internal Rogers briefing call that claimed Vancouver would be enjoying some 4G LTE at 50Mbps+ just in time for the Winter Olympics.

Rogers contacted us almost immediately to say the story was inaccurate and the call never happened, and we contacted Zach who was gracious enough to get back to us, reaffirming the story. Now the BGR has kicked it up another notch, posting audio from the supposed call online.

Real? Fake? A "leak it so we sound innovative but deny it so if it doesn't launch we had coverage" tactic? Take a listen to the recording and tell us what you think...

There seems to be quite a bit in there that Janet Random Hacker would not know about, or would not phrase in that way.
It might not be Rogers, could be a sub-contractor, but this sounds believable to me.

"Sega" was a pretty good gaming console.
I'm feeling the leak to sound innovative.
