When Apple announced the new iPad on Wednesday, they showed love for Rogers, Telus, and Bell as the three Canadian carriers to support LTE data plans for the new tablet. Well, now we can add a fourth to that as Virgin Mobile (owned by Bell) will start to offer LTE for its ‘members’ starting soon.
The network will use Bell’s LTE network (that is shared by Telus), and according to the internal doc it will offer ‘LTE speeds to 6 million Canadians in 14 urban centres across Canada’ with speeds up to 75 Mbps (they note an average speed of 12 – 25 Mbps). Most likely, these will be the existing Bell areas that already support LTE.
Bell earlier confirmed with us their iPad data plans will support LTE and the new iPad Personal Hotspot feature. Existing users can upgrade from 3G to LTE by calling in and linking their account to a new LTE microSIM. You can check out info from Rogers LTE iPad data plans here.
