Rogers Will, Won’t Have LTE Ready for 2010 Olympics

When EDGE first hit the scene, people were wowed by what it had to offer. When HSPA finally arrived, we were amazed by how fast the web could be accessed. The 4G LTE technology is the next natural progression and we may (or may not) be getting it sooner than expected.

Yesterday, there was a leaked audio file from an anonymous tipster saying that Rogers Wireless plans on rolling out its ultra-high speed LTE network in time for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and Whistler. That’s less than a year away and we couldn’t be more excited.

Unfortunately, an official statement from Rogers has trounced that unofficial report saying that the post is “inaccurate” and Rogers “did not participate in any such call. With regard to the audio you shared with us, we do not recognize the voice of the speaker, but we can tell you that it is not an accurate reflection of our plans for LTE.”

So, the race toward LTE continues. We’ve already heard that Bell and Telus are buddying up to get their network up and AT&T has LTE plans in the works as well. As it stands, no one will have it in time for the Olympic Games.
