Toronto-based national telecommunications company Rogers announced that it has expanded 5G coverage to more areas in Nova Scotia.
In an email statement, the operator said it expanded 5G in Dartmouth and Bedford, Nova Scotia. The expansion brings Rogers 5G to a total of 16 communities in the Atlantic region, including Halifax, Moncton, Saint John and Fredericton, all as part of a broader series of investments on Canada’s east coast.
Along with enhancing 5G, Rogers “enhanced” wireless networks in 32 communities in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island over the past 20 months.
Rogers also boasted of its investment in wired network upgrades, which the company said helped improve connections in 71 communities in Atlantic Canada.
“We are proud to improve connectivity in cities, towns and rural communities across Atlantic Canada, especially during the pandemic when world-class connections have played a critical role in people’s lives,” said Matt MacLellan, president of the Rogers Atlantic region. .
Rogers says its ongoing investments have enabled improved connectivity to more than 1,000 Canadian communities and will accelerate plans to bring improved connectivity to an additional 750 communities by the end of 2021.
