UPDATED: Some Residents Might Have Better Wireless Service in Brampton

If you struggle with fast wireless connection in Brampton, you might be excited to learn that some areas in our city now have better wireless connection.

Rogers just announced that it has improved wireless service in the Lundy Village residential area of Brampton and for commuters driving or taking the train between Mount Pleasant and Brampton Downtown Station.

According to Rogers, Rogers and Fido customers in the area will now have “a faster, more reliable and consistent wireless experience than ever before.”

Rogers working to move to a 5G network.

“Our customers want high quality wireless access wherever they are, whether it’s working on the go as a commuter on the train, shopping at a nearby retail area or even just using their device in their own backyard,” said Arnold Abramowitz, Vice-President, Wireless Access Networks at Rogers Communications.

“We are on the brink of the next generation of network technology, so these wireless enhancements not only connect customers in Brampton to the moments that matter most in their lives today, but they also prepare our network for tomorrow.”

Rogers is actually enhancing its network across Canada, and this improvement in Brampton is one of many across the GTA. Recently, Rogers has also improved service in Port Dover, Qualicum Beach, and even Medicine Hat.

In fact, this is part of Rogers’s multi-year national network plan to bring better wireless service to Canadians.

That includes Gigabit LTE network and 5G with future ready technology, and equipment that is based on the latest global 3GPP standards, including 4×4 MIMO, four-carrier aggregation and 256 QAM, according to Rogers.

“Rogers is working with Ericsson, a North American leader in network infrastructure and 5G deployment,” reads a recent release from Rogers.

“As part of this plan, Rogers will continue to boost and densify its network with small cells and macro sites across the country.”

So, whether you’re trying to stream your favourite TV shows, download work documents, post on social media or just chat with friends, you may now have better service in Brampton.

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this article said that this was a residential internet investment. It’s actually a mobile/wireless investment.
