5G now available to five more cities and towns in Ontario 

Rogers Communications announced that it has launched its 5G services to new cities and towns in Ontario, specifically in Ajax, Burlington, Grimsby, Oakville and Whitby.

Ericsson is the brand behind Rogers 5G and is considered the largest network in the country, now reaching 25 cities and towns in Ontario and more than 60 across the whole country. Last January, Rogers rolled out the 5G technology in downtown Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver. 

“This transformative technology now offered to residents of Ajax, Burlington, Grimsby, Oakville and Whitby will fuel productivity and innovation to help grow Ontario’s economy. As we continue to roll out 5G to additional Canadian markets, we are focused on building our robust 5G ecosystem with strategic investments, world-class partners and cutting-edge technology that will bring the best of connectivity to Canadians,” said Jorge Fernandes, the Chief Technology and Information Officer of Rogers Communications.

With the 5G technology, real-time connectivity will be possible allowing societies to transition to a fully digital world. Currently, Rogers 5G can be accessed by clients who are using the Rogers Infinite plans and unlimited business wireless plans with select 5G-ready devices. 

In the future, 5G will be capable of more advanced wireless technology. With ultra-low latency, lags will significantly drop to one millisecond, which is 400 times faster than the blink of an eye. With this, there will surely be an increase in the number of connected devices and a whole new range of applications and software that can keep up with this new technology. Indeed, 5G will deliver endless opportunities.

The industry itself is expected to provide an estimated $40 billion to economic growth and add 250,000 work opportunities by 2026.
