Rogers Communications will launch its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network services in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa in 2011 with the top 25 markets across Canada coming online in 2012.

Rogers customers will experience speeds that are between three and four times faster than HSPA+ with peak download rates of up to 150 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 70 Mbps. LTE will deliver lower latency than HSPA+ with a better experience for interactive applications like multi-player gaming and rich multi-media communications. It will deliver more usage capacity, which means more users can access the network at top speeds without affecting overall network performance.

The company will initially launch LTE using AWS spectrum and will over time deploy LTE in multiple bands. Rogers has selected Ericsson as its supplier in commercial deployment.

Rogers announced a comprehensive technical trial of LTE in Ottawa and Montreal last year to ready itself for a smooth, commercial deployment in 2011.
