Canada's Rogers says that it has launched HSDPA in Ontario's Golden Horseshoe region. The Golden Horseshoe is a densely populated and industrialized region at the west end of Lake Ontario in southern Ontario Canada. Although it is a geographically named sub region of Southern Ontario "Golden Horseshoe" is more frequently used to describe the urban agglomerations or metropolitan area that stretches across the area.
"For mobile workers, HSDPA is the great equalizer," said John Boynton, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Wireless. "Whether you're in the office or on the road will no longer dictate how fast you can access your data. From now on, wireless subscribers can enjoy high-speed mobile Internet and multimedia downloads at speeds previously possible only on a wired connection."
The HSDPA network will be rolled out to the top Canadian markets throughout 2007 and will include the introduction of HSDPA-enabled phones and new applications as well as much improved customer experiences on current leading applications by Rogers Wireless."
