Canada’s First and Largest 5G Network Expands to 18 New Cities and Towns in Ontario
Rogers Communications has announced its launch of 5G in 18 new cities and towns in Ontario.
“5G is the next technological evolution that will transform the way we live and work in Ontario,” said Philippe Oille, President of Southwestern Ontario Region, Rogers Communications.
“Building on our launch of 5G in Ottawa and Toronto earlier this year, we are proud to now reach 18 new cities and towns in Ontario including our innovation corridor, while continuing to support important 5G research and innovation through our partnerships with the University of Waterloo and Communitech. Strong digital infrastructure and this next generation technology are critical to fuel productivity and innovation as we power out of the pandemic, and in the future as we reset the competitive landscape in Ontario and for Canada, globally.”
5G will make real-time connectivity a reality, accelerating the transition to a truly digitally connected world. In addition to providing the latest technology for consumers and businesses, Rogers has lit up the University of Waterloo’s 5G Smart Campus to support university researchers testing 5G applications in a real-world setting. This is in support of Rogers three-year, multi-million-dollar partnership agreement with the University of Waterloo to advance 5G research in the Toronto-Waterloo tech corridor.
Over time, 5G will introduce new capabilities that are significantly more advanced than previous generations of wireless technology. From network slicing to give first responders a dedicated network, to wireless sensors that monitor farmers’ soil conditions saving them time and money, to using virtual reality that enhances the retail customer experience, to multi-player lag-free gaming on the go – 5G will deliver a world of possibilities.
