Rogers Communications Inc. and MTS are teaming up once again to extend their wireless network sharing arrangement to the Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in the province.
The two companies announced a province-wide network sharing agreement that will see Rogers customers in Winnipeg, Brandon, Victoria Beach and Grand Beach gain access to LTE Max network starting Sunday.
MTS customers in Winnipeg and Brandon have had access to the network that allows mobile devices access internet at speeds of up to 150 Mbps, since August 2012
MTS has previously announced plans to expand 4G LTE coverage to six additional communities in 2013 and now both companies have plans to expand the 4G LTE network to reach more than 90 per cent of Manitoba’s population over the next five years.
MTS and Rogers already share the 4G HSPA+ network in Manitoba.
The latest partnership means MTS customers will benefit from an improved roaming experience when travelling outside of Manitoba, with faster connection times and future access to LTE roaming.
