LTE is MIA for Winnipeg.

I was in Regina for  few days, and my S3 connected to the LTE network there.  It was amazing.

 

The Rogers Network Coverage map doesn't even mark Winnipeg as "Coming Soon".

What the heck?  Why does Rogers hate Winnipeg?  What did we ever do to them?

Re: LTE is MIA for Winnipeg.

Oh Come on Rogers!!!!

 

Winnipeg isn't even on the LTE coming soon list anymore.

 

Regina Sask has it, and now St Johns NB....  But not Winnipeg!

 

Bell is now in Winnipeg and offering the inferiour 4G-LTE.   

 

MTS has 4G-LTE.  

 

what is going on Rogers????

Re: LTE is MIA for Winnipeg.

Hi everybody

 

I am bumping up this post to announce some good news.

 

Today, we’re very excited to announce we’re bringing LTE Max to Manitoba through a province-wide network sharing agreement with MTS.  Starting June 17th, we will roll out our premium LTE network that enables theoretical network speeds of up to 150 Mbps to customers in Winnipeg, Brandon, Victoria Beach, Grand Beach, Selkirk, Steinbach and Ste. Anne.  

 

More details here: http://redboard.rogers.com/2013/manitoba-lte/

 

We also wanted to thank you all for your patience. We're very happy to finally have LTE available for you.

 

Starting Monday, let us know how it works for you.

Re: LTE is MIA for Winnipeg.

yes it is here... Winnipeg has LTE and LTE Maxx

 

did a speedtest.net and got  68 Mbps DL and 25 Mbps UL

 

However I had to reboot to get that speed.  I don't think the Maxx part worked until I rebooted.

 

 

Thank you.  

 

(I was still mad that rival city Regina got it first, but you know I can't stay mad at you.....)

Re: LTE is MIA for Winnipeg.

After getting an LTE sim card, I am able to bask in the cancer causing radio frequencies known as LTE! It's about time!!!! But Rogers..... Don't think this redeems you in my book. You need to really woo me in order to change my mind back and not drop my account as soon as it is possible!

Re: LTE is MIA for Winnipeg.

Oh no... Friends who decided on the LG are not getting LTE in Winnipeg. Some strange frequency issue. LTE works for them everywhere else in Canada.
