Rogers to invest $700 million in Alberta

Rogers Communications, Canada’s leading diversified communications and media company has announced a planned investment of over $700 million in Alberta over the next four years.

Starting this year, Rogers will further upgrade and expand its wireless network throughout the province, open additional retail locations, sponsor the Edmonton Oilers and further increase its contributions to local communities and youth initiatives.

This four year commitment follows a decade long growth strategy that has seen Rogers invest over $1 billion in network enhancements and expansions across the province of Alberta.

“For the past ten years, we’ve made strategic investments that help fuel Alberta’s growth and empower Canadians to communicate, collaborate and compete,” said Rob Bruce, president of Communications Division, Rogers Communications.

“Today’s commitment to further enhance our network infrastructure, retail presence, and investment in community and sports, will give Albertans even more access to innovation and the latest technology, while strengthening the province’s economy and our communities,” added Bruce.

The company is investing in network enhancements and expansions across the province by increasing our overall coverage sites by 40 per cent and rolling out Rogers LTE to even more communities such as Leduc and Chestermere. Focus is also on delivering next generation business solutions to Alberta’s business community, particularly in the oil and gas sector, including innovative machine-to-machine and connected solutions.
