Rogers 5G mobile services are now available in nine eastern Ontario communities, including four counties and one single-tier municipality. The announcement is part of the EORN Cell Gap Project, a $300 million public-private partnership to improve and expand cellular services across rural eastern Ontario. The project is funded by federal, provincial, and municipal governments, as well as municipal members of the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus and most of the Eastern Ontario Mayors’ Caucus.
Rogers Communications is building more than 330 new wireless sites and upgrading over 300 existing sites with 5G by 2025. The wireless expansion project is enhancing public safety and providing peace of mind for residents, allowing them to call emergency services and use navigation apps along rural and remote roadways in eastern Ontario. The project is valued at more than $300 million and aims to provide a seamless wireless experience across Eastern Ontario and ensure all Canadians can access Canada’s largest 5G wireless network.
