Rogers expands wireless home broadband in southwestern Ontario

22 Oct 2020

Rogers Communications has announced the expansion of its wireless home internet service across more than 100 communities in southwestern Ontario including areas around Halton Hills, St. Catharines and Niagara Falls. Spokesperson Eric Bruno said: ‘With wireless home internet, Rogers can reach more Canadians in smaller, rural communities that today either have no or limited broadband options, making it easier to work, study and socialise from home.’

Rogers’ wireless home internet service leverages its cellular network to deliver broadband to residents in rural and remote communities that would be harder to reach with a fibre-optic network. Select towers are equipped to support the increased usage and small antennas are set up on customers’ homes and positioned towards the towers to transmit the signal.
