Rogers brings LTE to the Okanagan

Rogers is expanding its outreach in the Mount Boucherie and Upper Okanagan Mission areas

Rogers will be expanding its outreach in the Mount Boucherie and Upper Okanagan Mission areas, making it easier for Rogers and Fido customers to use maps to navigate the Lakeshore Wine Route, share a photo from the bleachers of Jim Lind Arena, or make a call from West Kelowna city hall.

“West Kelowna encouraged Rogers to provide improved service around Mt. Boucherie and we are extremely pleased with this service expansion that will ensure coverage in one of our busiest recreational and municipal areas,” said Doug Findlater, Mayor of West Kelowna.

“We’re investing in our wireless network to make sure our customers have access to our world-class LTE service in more places,” said vice president of partner retail sales for Rogers Perm Jawanda. “Whether you live in Kelowna or are in town to tour the city’s famous wineries or catch a hockey game, our customers want to be able to connect with the people and things that matter to them, in more places. As communities in the B.C interior keep growing, we’re committed to continuing to improve service for our Rogers and Fido customers.”

Now, residents in the growing communities around Mount Boucherie and Upper Mission in South Kelowna, as well as people visiting Royal LePage Place, Jim Lind Arena, and West Kelowna City Hall, will have more access to Rogers LTE service.

LTE, the fastest generation of wireless service in Canada, provides stronger, more consistent data speeds, similar to high-speed broadband home Internet. With LTE, customers can stream and do more on the go with less buffering. The improved service also provides HD quality voice services when using a device enabled with VoLTE, the latest voice technology.
