Rogers turns on 700 MHz spectrum for communities in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto

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 stability to everyday LTE connections.

Rogers paid a pretty penny for this spectrum in the auction in February, so it’s good to see it going to good use. It’s just too bad the little guys like WIND Mobile weren’t able to afford to get in on the bidding process. Here’s hoping Rogers starts rolling out the 700 MHz upgrade to other regions soon.

Any Rogers customers in these markets? Are you enjoying better LTE coverage as a result?

Not if you own an iPhone, apparently.

They need Apple to certify that the iPhone works optimally first. Apple won't just allow iPhones on a new carrier network without thorough performance testing. It's the same when Malaysia's DiGi turned on their LTE network.
