Rogers brings HSDPA to Canada

Chris Ziegler

Canadian speed freaks, rejoice; your network is here. Rogers Wireless has announced that it's begun to light up its glorious HSDPA network and has started doling out Sierra Wireless Aircard 860s to match. For the record, the 860 is the same PC Card that Cingular launched with, topping out at 1.8Mbps -- whether Rogers will eventually migrate to 3.6Mbps, we're not sure, but we suggest that our Canadian friends not bite the hand that feeds them. At least, not for the first few weeks. Look for the Aircard at Rogers retailers for $50 CAD on a three-year contract (yowza) or $350 on a one- or two-year agreement.
