I don't think the government is holding 5G spectrum auction until 2020 so there wont be any 5G in Canada any time soon.

Will the initial S10 be 5G ready for 2020?   I usually keep phones for 3 years.

Hello, @rawr4444.

 

Thank you for joining this conversation. I appreciate your interest in the fifth generation wireless network; I'm very much looking forward to it. The 5G launch would be a grand event which would be hard to miss. At the moment, we are unable to comment about it. Please stay tuned. 🙂

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin

Hey @cafekief,

 

5G is really going to be a game changer! It will make the mass communication of IoT a reality and is something I am excited for.

 

Our 5G network will begin to roll out commercially in 2020.

 

Rogers is excited to bring customers a full suite of 5G enabled devices when our 5G network is commercially available. Please stay tuned here in the Community and on rogers.com for updates! Current LTE devices will continue to work, as they do today, on our 4G LTE network.
 

Regards,

RogersTim

Hey @cafekief!

 

Safe to say I think that we're all excited for 5G! Though at this time we don't have any details pertaining to plans for 5G at this time keep an eye out on Rogers.com for any updates or changes as they become available!

Re: 5G Wireless Network Support

Even though the 5G network may not be ready until 2020 in Canada, will Rogers be selling 5G phones before then?  Example: the S10 5G will be released in the US in May.  Will it be purchasable through Rogers roughly around the same time? Or are you waiting until the 5G network is ready?   I am ready to purchase a 5G phone asap and would like to do so via Rogers, as my contract is up as of today. 

 

Thanks
