Rogers rocket races

RogersRogers has announced a significant upgrade to the speeds on its mobile wireless network with the evolution to HSPA+ technology. Beginning in the greater Toronto area, Rogers mobile customers will have access to download speeds of up to 21 Mbps, beating many wired internet access services.
Rogers is the first wireless provider in North America and only the sixth carrier in the world to launch HSPA+ at peak speeds of 21 Mbps, putting Canada on top of the world in technology and innovation and once again, bringing leading-edge technologies to Canadian consumers first.
Rogers will offer next generation Rocket sticks that can take advantage of the new speeds.

In the past week, Rogers Wireless has made a number of announcements that should continue to maintain its leadership - wholesale services to Videotron, Manitoba joint venture and with this announcement, an ability to roll out a serious mobile-based broadband service across the country that can compete with wireline services.

Less than 2 years ago, Rogers became the first carrier in North America to launch 7.2 Mbps service, advancing on its April, 2007 launch of Vision services, also a North American first.

There is more to competition than just pricing. With these investments in innovation, Rogers is signalling that its approach will be to continue offering world beating services to Canadians.

Relevant to yesterday's posting, Rogers' advanced 21 Mbps HSPA+ network is powered by Canadian innovation, developed by Ericsson in Montreal.
