Rogers Wireless “Canada’s Most Reliable Network” just got “faster and bigger“. (isn’t that “er” thing Bell’s”?) Rogers has been busy upgrading its national network to 3.5G technology and now 25 major markets have access to the added speed. By the end of December 2008 75% of the population will have access to Rogers’ 3.5G network-the first of its kind in North America. The 7.2 HSPA network brings download speeds up to 7.2 Mbps to yours Rogers device. Rogers is the first provider in North America to offer a 3.5G network.
EDIT: Only four Rogers devices can currently take advantage of the new 3.5G network. The HTC Diamond, LG VuT915,Novatel MC950D (rocket stick), and the Noveatel X950 (network card). The Apple iPhone and the BlackBerry Bold are unable to use the 3.5G and will remain operating on the existing 3G network. Do i smell an new iPhone coming?
