Re: LTE not coming to Winnipeg after all.

Hello Laynlow

Is there a way you can show us you are getting LTE in Winnipeg with Rogers? It would be amazing if this is real but they should have came out & said they are testing it instead of keeping it low.

Re: LTE not coming to Winnipeg after all.

Hmm i heard that same exact line last year when it was supposed to come out:/. If this is real, we need a Rogers rep to come here & post it. I doubt they will but hoping for it!.

Re: LTE not coming to Winnipeg after all.

it took me an hour   on the phone  with  tech to get any answers to why lte was flashing on my phone....  first they tried the  its an error thing...  and i said  thats wired cause my co workers  iphone5   did it too....  then they  tried to say it was   the other brands  lte  causing a mix up and i should reset my phone.....     lol they tried the   bs  and i just always had  the answers for them.....   and it is  verified that the LTE  equipment is in place...     but get this... the licence to the CRTC  for manitoba  was in red tape so they couldnt  even start testing till may 23 midnight

We are working to bring LTE to your city as soon as possible and will keep you updated when it becomes available in your area.

Re: LTE not coming to Winnipeg after all.

It's nice to see that at least Winnipeg will be getting LTE (assuming it is only red tape holding things up).  It's just sad that this is the very last province to get any kind of upgrade from Rogers.  If it weren't for the fact that MTS is worth nothing outside the province and Bell/Telus don't cover anything north or south of #1 Hwy, I would have jumped ship a long time ago.

 

So now here I sit in Brandon - probably the last city in the country that got 3G from Rogers (and only because of MTS).  I would expect I'll be retired in 5 years and moved away before LTE shows up here. 

 

Manitoba is truly the "have-not" province when it comes to cell phones.

Re: LTE not coming to Winnipeg after all.

RogersRavi, why do you even bother responding with such a useless post?

 

Your job is to go out and connect with customers using social media, but all these generic posts do is infuriate everyone. Unless you can provide some actual detail, it's probably best to just say nothing at all.

Re: LTE not coming to Winnipeg after all.

Hi everybody

 

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.

Thank you for updating this thread for us!

 

Still not sure why Rogers just couldn't give us some sort of update for the past 8 months...
