Canada’s largest cellco by subscribers, Rogers, announced yesterday that it has extended its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network to cover an additional 18 cities and regions. The company’s 4G infrastructure now covers almost 60% of Canada’s population, and additional rollout later this year and into 2013 will lift coverage above 60%. Since becoming the first Canadian operator to launch LTE in July 2011, Rogers says it has seen an 80% increase in data usage, and that it expects this to grow six-fold by the end of 2016.
