Alberta network getting upgraded
Rogers Communications is planning to invest millions of dollars in Alberta over the next four years to upgrade and expand its wireless network throughout the province.
“For the past 10 years, we’ve made strategic investments that help fuel Alberta’s growth and empower Canadians to communicate, collaborate and compete,” said Rob Bruce, president of communications division at Rogers Communications.
“Today’s commitment to further enhance our network infrastructure, retail presence, and investment in community and sports, will give Albertans even more access to innovation and the latest technology, while strengthening the province’s economy and our communities.”
Earlier this month, Rogers said it is investing more than $700 million to expand its wireless network in Alberta, open new retail locations and sponsor the Edmonton Oilers.
The network expansion will increase Roger’s overall coverage sites by 40 per cent and roll out Rogers wireless internet service to more communities, such as Leduc and Chestermere.
Rogers will be opening dozens of new retail locations to offer more customers access to technology and customer service.
In 2013, the company expects to open a total of 12 new retail locations.
The recent acquisition of Pivot Data Centres in Calgary and Edmonton for $155 million will allow the delivery of expanded data capacity, managed data and cloud services.
In addition, Rogers signed a multi-year deal to be the lead sponsor of the Edmonton Oilers under which the company has acquired the official sponsorship and marketing rights for the Oilers, Oil Kings and Rexall Place.
