    Rogers LTE network now CAT 6 enabled

    Just got word that Rogers LTE is now Cat 6 enabled (up to 300Mbps). They're able to do this by aggregating their AWS and their 2600Mhz spectrum (band 4 + 7).

    It's available in certain cities in BC and Ontario including Toronto, Guelph, Vancouver and Victoria.

    Now, bring on the Cat 6 devices!

    LOL, nice! Super fast LTE with a very limited footprint. When are they going to expand LTE coverage to the rest of Canada and then lower their monthly plan rates?!

    It's max speeds of 225 Mbps

    "The current setup only supports 225Mbps, since it is using 10Mhz over 2100Mhz and 20Mhz over 2600Mhz."

    Bingo! What's the point of faster data speeds with the outrageous data caps Rogers has.

    Priceless replies 😂, they really need to work on coverage, particularly the West its terrible. Thinking if going back to Belus going by their track record not seeing the fancy stuff in the boonies, where as Belus has great coverage and even LTE. Oh well enjoy it select markets.

    You may not realize how true that is. Both Rogers and Bell are getting the new Cat 6 Note Edge. Coincidence? I think not.

    Hehe, sneaky sneaky Robbers. Launch Cat 6 LTE in a few (and very limited) markets to claim a "faster network experience" for your customers buying a Note Edge, eh? Well, the Note "Edge" on Rogers won't disappoint...it'll live up to its name by being stuck on the Rogers EDGE network most of the time Sigh...if they took half of what they're spending in making their LTE network uselessly faster in very limited locations, and put that money towards expanding their overall footprint, they would actually have half-decent coverage across the country. Same old same old with Big Red

    Is that touch sensitive or just a display? Just regular note 4 hardware otherwise?
    I have enough trouble hitting the edge of the screen while holding my regular note.

    I rather have Rogers spend the money and upgrade their existing "LTE" network...
    LTE should be more then sufficient for now until 4K streaming becomes the norm
    $48
    Unlimited incoming and outgoing calls, Unlimited Canada-wide long distance
    Unlimited text, picture and video messages from Canada to Canadian, U.S. and international wireless numbers

    100% Agree but the problem is businesses don't think of that. I'm sure they look at a map and density of subscribers and choose where to invest. Sucks that rural coverage isn' the best like in cottage country I still can't get reception near Vansickle Rd in Ontario.

    And Bell? I don't know what the f**k they're doing. Look at Nova Scotia and New Brunswick - covered in LTE where you can't even do Toronto to Montreal and stay on LTE.

    Rogers really has done a great job at expanding their LTE in comparison to Bell...
