Rogers (LTE) Thornbury - Ontario

Hello,

Is there anyway to find which internet (phone) Rogers offers @ this place?
LTE, 4G\3G or?

Thanks!

Rogers has lit 4G HSPA+ all along Georgian Bay. LTE is lit in Owen Sound. They are expanding LTE coverage, but have run into tower objections. The coverage map is reasonably accurate. »www.rogers.com/web/content/wireless_network

Given the wind, not a bright idea, at least out on Georgian Bay. There is also still ice out there. Inland, trout and pickerel are keeping down with the cold.

Just wear your PFD. We've lost too many to the cold waters over the years.

So, people complain when rural areas don't get good cell coverage... And then when the incumbents try to deploy rural coverage (true 4G no less), people object to the towers... Can't have it both ways!

Then again, I'd be happy living in a bladerunner-esque dystopia if it got me better telecom services :P

I'm not surprised...why would Rogers want to stick it in Meaford...there's mountains all around this area, any of which has to be a much better place to install a tower.

And the "mountains" are part of the Niagara Escarpment. Lots of tower restrictions. Cell service is bad in Meaford, They wanted to fill in the gaps.
