Hi kensmith19,

Where are you located exactly? LTE is offered in some cities for now. We are looking at expanding it soon.

You can look at our coverage map for more details.

Thank you,

Hello kensmith19,
As I know,lte is not covered at newmarket,I live at richmnd hill(yonge&19th) and I got lte.I think that is almost the edge of lte coverage.You can check the map on rogers website.

Re: samsung s3 lte

well lte is now in newmarket and still no lte on it..i called rogers and they told me cause maybe i didnt buy the phone through rogers and the ime number can't be added to there system is maybe the reason..i think thats a bunch of b's as i know people who bought iphone 5's from apple and are able to get lte on there units and they werent bought from rogers store or online..i have a lte sim chip...basically the rogers person over the phone wanted me to buy a new phone a s3 or other and would knock off a part of the hardware fee for 30 days..i really wana get lte working on this phone cause i am sure it should work as the phone was bought in canada...

@kensmith19

Not really. Not all phones are able to be used with Rogers networks. Please find the specs of the phone and post them here. Also let us know where the phone is from.

 

Apple makes their hardware and software to be used everywhere. Some countries can ONLY use 3G or 4G (HSPA+). Some countries can use that and LTE.  This is hy Apple can do it. Other manufactors make different phones.
