Rogers HSDPA Expands

Canadians can now have access to HSDPA-based 3G wireless through Rogers in several major cities, according to unofficial reports. Although the carrier has made no formal announcements of expanding its network beyond a Toronto debut, users in Calgary, Edmonton, London, Montreal, and Ottawa have all mentioned their phones detecting the presence of the networks in parts of the respective cities, indicating a build-out of the faster cellular Internet access beyond its original location. Signals can be intermittent and reveal that the upgrade is still in the early stages, subscribers say. Completion of the core network is expected in earnest by early 2008.

Rogers is only the second North American provider to implement HSDPA and is currently the only company to support two-way video calls on the continent, supporting them through special phones equipped for the provider's VISION service. Using HSDPA in general requires one of a few phones available through Rogers with network support, such as the Samsung A706 and the HTC TyTN. [via Engadget]
