Rogers has had a busy 2012 when it comes to deploying LTE. Announcements of new coverage have occured several times over the past year. The last one was in early October when Rogers launched LTE in 18 new markets. With 2012 wrapping up, at least one market Rogers had been hoping to get to will have to wait until next year unfortunately.
Rogers earlier this week announced that the Winnipeg launch would be delayed until 2103:
Rogers now expects to launch LTE in Winnipeg next year. Rogers offers the largest and growing selection of the most popular LTE smartphones, tablets and mobile Internet devices. LTE-enabled, devices work on the Rogers 4G HSPA+ network in Manitoba today and will be ready when we launch LTE in Manitoba. In addition, as Rogers customers travel across Canada their Rogers device will automatically benefit from LTE coverage in the many markets where LTE has already launched.
No reason was given for the delay.
