Rogers LTE wireless service expands into New Westminster

In a continued partnership with Rogers, LTE wireless connectivity on the SkyTrain has expanded into New Westminster! Starting today, Rogers and Fido customers will now see extended LTE wireless connectivity at Columbia SkyTrain Station and through the tunnels between Columbia and Sapperton SkyTrain stations. This is an extension to the service that was added to the Dunsmuir and Edmonds tunnels last summer!

Enhancing cellular coverage across the Expo and Millennium Line network ­increases safety, security and convenience for customers and operators with the added bonus of no cost to taxpayers.

Customers have told us that connectivity on the system is important and our partnership with Rogers is one way we are working to have a reliable and sustainable network in place.

Stay tuned for more info about more LTE service coming to our Expo and Millennium lines.

    What about Telus customers? I’m not a Rogers/Fido customer.

    Hi Kelly, not at this time for Telus customers. However, the infrastructure has been configured to support additional carriers so we look forward to other carriers also taking advantage of this opportunity to improve LTE connectivity to the public.

    So does the tunnel between New Westminster and Columbia have full coverage?

    Hi George, yep, full coverage for Rogers/Fido customers.

    The section between Joyce Collingwood Station and Nanaimo still needs some work.
