Rogers and Shaw One-Year Anniversary 

April 3rd marks the one-year anniversary of the Rogers and Shaw merger.  

As two Canadian companies, we’ve proudly come together to invest in our economy and networks, and deliver more global innovation and more affordable services for Western Canadians. 

In just one year we’ve: 

Expanded our Networks in Western Canada 
We’ve expanded and enhanced 5G to over 150 communities, with new coverage spanning 20,000 square kilometres.  We’ve also expanded high speed internet to reach 90,000 more homes and seamlessly upgraded Shaw Mobile customers to the Rogers 5G network. 

Expanded Connected for Success 
We helped make our services more accessible to low-income Canadians by expanding our Connected for Success internet program to 1.5 million Canadians across the West. And we introduced a new national Connected for Success wireless program with a no-cost 5G phone available to 2.5 million Canadians, the first of its kind in Canada.  

Increased Choice and Competition 
We increased competition and choice by introducing bundled internet and mobile phone plans in the West. In the past year alone, wireless prices in Canada have come down 26% while other goods and services have gone up with inflation.  

Introduced New Innovations 
At the same time, we continued to invest in new innovations in global technology including satellite-to-mobile and wildfire detection technology. We’re using our national network and global technology partnerships to connect every corner of the country and help combat climate change-related events.  

Invested in Communities  
As a growth company, we are investing in digital infrastructure and our communities. These investments contributed billions in GDP across the West and helped create new jobs. Together with Shaw we also invested over $100 million in Canadian charities, continuing a proud legacy.   

And we’re just getting started. The best is yet to come.
