• Rogers and Videotron Create 20-Year Agreement, Will Build-Out Expanded LTE Network in Quebec and Ottawa


    Videotron, a regional carrier with a specific footprint of Ottawa & Quebec regions has taken a significant step in their relationship with Rogers as a roaming partner. Late this evening both carriers announced a 20-year agreement, where they will work together to build out a LTE wireless network in key markets that they both share. This will help strenghten Rogers already strong LTE network footprint across Canada, that includes shared areas in such as Montreal, Ottawa and Québec City.

    There is a hidden gem in this agreement:

    In addition to the network sharing agreement, Videotron and Rogers have also come to an agreement regarding Videotron's unused AWS spectrum in the Greater Toronto Area. Videotron will have the option to transfer its Toronto spectrum licence to Rogers, subject to regulatory approvals, beginning January 1, 2014 for a price of $180 million.
    So, you can basically expect quicker and hopefully more reliable LTE service in areas that Videotron and ROGERS both have a presence.
