Less than a month after acquiring Mobilicity‘s and Shaw’s spectrum, Rogers has gone ahead and enabled faster mobile wireless speeds in British Columbia and Alberta.

Specific locations in British Columbia to receive the upgrade are Burnaby, New Westminster, Kelowna and Richmond.

Rogers customers in Alberta, including those with Fido, will see AWS-1 activated in Edmonton, St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Leduc, Nisku, Beaumont and Morinville, Calgary, Airdrie, Medicine Hat, Lloydminster, Wetaskiwin, Drayton Valley and Camrose.

Raj Doshi, executive vice president of Wireless at Rogers, said, “we’re opening more lanes on our wireless superhighway. Those new lanes will mean faster speeds as we all stream more and more mobile video and connect with friends and family. This spectrum is a valuable resource to Canadians and now it is being put to good use.”

Rogers announced its quarterly results yesterday and reported revenues of $3.4 billion with just over 9.5 million wireless subscribers.
