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. 🙂
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.
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.
Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums and congratulations on your first post! 😃
5G is going to bring huge advancements in technology so I don't blame you for being so curious about how everything is going to work. While I wish we had more information about the launch of 5G compatible devices, we currently do not have an update to provide as of yet.
Once there is information that we can share we will keep the Community updated. It is also a good idea to stay tuned to the Rogers.com website for updates.
I have a friend who works for the Edmonton Police Service in the phone tapping department. He told me that 5G networks won't be readily available or common for the public for something like 3-4 years. If you are upgrading your cell phone now, don't bother with 5G yet.
So the mricocell on top of a hotel is really not good. Penetration is not long enough to get thu trees and buildings
The cell site is at 166th street and Fraser highway in Surrey, BC needs a repair and hopefully soon a 5G small cell as just up the street at 156th has 5G coverage...
