Rogers 5G: When & Where You Can Get It

5G is available in Canada, but you'll need the right phone first

The Rogers Communications network covers a massive 97 percent of Canada, and is one of many mobile carriers launching 5G around the world.

Rogers invested over $4 billion USD in 5G deployment in 2019 and expects to spend over $2 billion in 2020 on its communications infrastructure. They're currently in the process of rolling out a 5G network ahead of its 5G devices that will become available this year.

The company has been silent about any fixed wireless access (FWA) solutions for 5G access at home, and have announced plans to release only mobile 5G that works with 5G phones.

  • Ottawa
  • Toronto
  • Vancouver

Rogers will provide 5G to over 20 more cities by the end of the year.

However, you can't access the network until 5G phones are released for Rogers customers, which will happen in 2020.
