Hey Community,


Good news! Rogers announced improved wireless service in Sproat Lake near Port Alberni on Vancouver Island. Now, Rogers customers in this busy community will have a faster, more reliable and consistent wireless experience than ever before.  Rogers worked with the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District and local political leaders to build the new cellular tower, which will benefit residents, businesses & local emergency responders.


With this network investment, Rogers and Fido customers in Sproat Lake will be able to connect to more of the things they love, whether that means streaming their favourite videos, downloading work documents, posting on social media or even just chatting with friends.


The enhanced coverage will also improve wireless connection to emergency response services for residents, visitors and recreational users.


This announcement is one of several Rogers wireless enhancements on Vancouver Island including Qualicum Beach. Rogers continues to invest throughout British Columbia with major network expansions in Witset and along Highway 16KelownaBurnabyMaple Ridge, Vancouver and across SkyTrain.




Rogers is currently working on a multi-year program to bring 5G to Canadians. Rogers has also announced plans to launch a national LTE-M network to enable the next era of IoT solutions in Canada, as well as a 5G research partnership with University of British Columbia, and a national infrastructure agreement with Ericsson. In 2018, Rogers completed live 5G testing at Rogers Centre and is currently testing 5G global standards. Rogers continues to upgrade its 4.5G network with the latest 5G-ready technology to be ready for 5G commercial deployment.
