Rogers Communications is leaping ahead of the pack in North America with their announced 7.2MB wireless internet trials now beginning. This is by far the fastest wireless network yet in North America, making Americans a little jealous of their friends from Canada.
While individuals in many European countries have been enjoying videocalls as standard practice for sometime now, Americans have been attempting to get their fix from a variety of non-real-time sources, but Rogers brings Videocalling home to Canada.
According to the Rogers press release, “Following the successful expansion of its revolutionary high-speed network – HSPA – to 25 Canadian markets earlier this month, Rogers today announced it has begun field trials of its 7.2 Mbps wireless data service. The Brampton and Montreal trials utilize 3.5 generation wireless HSPA/UMTS technology (High Speed Packet Access/Universal Mobile Telecommunications System), enabling a peak download speed of 7.2 Mbps, by far the fastest in the country.”
