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 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.

Hey Community,

 

Super Bowl LIII, featuring the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, is happening this Sunday February 3, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

 

Watching on Digital or Ignite TV:

  • Viewers can watch this year’s game on CTV, CTV2, TSN and CBS.
  • The Interactive Programming Guide (IPG) listings will show the game starting at 6 p.m. but the kickoff will happen around 6:30 p.m.
  • The broadcast is not available in 4K.

 

Canadian and US Ads:

  • Viewers tuning to the US channel (CBS) will see the American ads, while those tuning to Canadian channels (CTV, CTV2, TSN) will see Canadians ads.
  • This only applies to the Super Bowl game itself (from the kickoff to the final play and celebration) and not the pre-game and post-game shows. Viewers tuning to CBS for the pre-game shows will see a Canadian feed right up until kick-off and again after the game has ended.  

 

I know football fans cannot wait for Sunday to come. Who are you rooting for?
