Now 200 destinations for Rogers customers on the go around the globe TORONTO, Aug. 29 /CNW/ - Rogers Wireless announced today that voice roaming on its GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) network is now available in 200 countries. Rogers reached this 200-country milestone on July 24, 2007 with a newly-signed roaming agreement between Rogers Wireless and the mobile operator, Comium Liberia Inc. in the African nation of Liberia. Rogers has over 500 roaming partners worldwide. As Canada's only GSM carrier, Rogers is by far leading the way among Canadian wireless carriers when it comes to offering the most international voice and data roaming destinations with a selection of 52 world phones. "Our significant investment in the world-standard GSM technology six years ago has served our customers well," said John Boynton, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer. "Now, if you're one of the 7 million customers who have chosen Rogers Wireless or Fido, you can voice roam in 200 countries - the most of any Canadian carrier. And you can choose from the country's best and broadest selection of GSM devices, from HTC's TyTN to RIM's BlackBerry Curve." Since the launch of Rogers' GSM network in July 2001, the GSM subscriber base worldwide has exploded from 500 million to more than 2.5 billion. Over 82% of the world's wireless subscribers are on a GSM network; making it the most widely used wireless technology in the world. In the fall of 2006, Rogers reached a major milestone in network investment and expansion by launching the country's only HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) network, the latest evolution of GSM. On April 2, 2007, Rogers became the first carrier in North America to launch wireless video calling using this network.
