Fido to Launch LTE Network Within Months
Canadian mobile network, Fido announced today that LTE service will be unleashed this summer, giving customers the speed of an enhanced network service across major markets in Canada, including in the cities and surrounding areas of Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montréal and St. Johns with more cities to launch throughout 2012.
Coming this summer, the Fido Mobile Hotspot will be the first LTE-enabled device available from Fido. This device creates a Wi-Fi hotspot wherever, and whenever customers need it, and wirelessly connects up to 10 Wi-Fi capable devices simultaneously. LTE-enabled smartphones will be available at Fido later this year, and all of the Fido LTE-enabled devices are capable of running across Fido’s HSPA+ network which covers 96 per cent of the population of Canada.
Fido will continue to expand LTE across the country, with the plan to provide LTE network access to 20 million Canadians by the end of 2012.
