Saskatoon, Saskatchewan August 15, 2018 – Rogers announces improved wireless service in the community of Hampton Village in the City of Saskatoon. Now Rogers and Fido customers in this community will have a faster, more reliable and consistent wireless experience than ever before.

“Our customers want high quality wireless access wherever they are, whether flying in and out of the Saskatoon International Airport, working while on the go, or visiting the many recreational facilities, shops and services in Hampton Village,” said Larry Goerzen, President, Alberta and Prairies Region at Rogers Communications. “We are on the brink of the next generation of network technology, improved wireless enhancements connect customers and businesses in Saskatoon to the moments that matter most in their lives today and prepare our network for tomorrow.”

With this network investment, Rogers and Fido customers in Hampton Village will be able to connect to more of the things they love, whether that means streaming their favourite TV shows, downloading work documents, posting on social media or even just chatting with friends. This investment will also benefit our business customers in the Village Centre. Today’s announcement is one of several new Rogers wireless investments in the Province of Saskatchewan including in the City of Regina.

This network enhancement in the City of Saskatoon is part of a multi-year national network plan. In the future, Rogers will bring customers Gigabit LTE and 5G with next generation ready technology and equipment that is based on the latest global 3GPP standards, including 4×4 MIMO, four-carrier aggregation and 256 QAM.
