Today Freedom Mobile announced that they have competed the expansion of their powerful new AWS-3 Band 66 LTE network to Edmonton and Calgary. This announcement came ahead of the expected completion date of this summer. This announcement means that local customers will have access to faster data and download speeds, smoother streaming and overall enhanced network performance.
Freedom's LTE network was first launched in November 2016 in the Toronto and Vancouver areas and has been expanding since then. More upgrades will continue throughout 2017.
"Canadians have told us that providing them with reliable network coverage that offers enhanced speeds and faster downloads at a fair and reasonable price is a priority for them, and we've listened," said Paul McAleese, Chief Operating Officer, Freedom Mobile. "The launch of our powerful new LTE network furthers our commitment to providing Freedom Mobile customers in Calgary and Edmonton access to the same enhanced experience that those in the Greater Toronto Area, Southern Ontario and the Greater Vancouver Area currently enjoy."
