I heard a rumor that Rogers Wireless will be switching all data plans to be LTE capable providing you have an LTE sim card in the phone. There’s no need to call or go into Rogers to do anything.
Why is this great?
If you have any data credits, you won’t lose them because in effect you’re not changing anything on your plan.
- So I went in to a Rogers store and picked up an LTE sim card for $10.
- When I got home, I logged into my Rogers account and changed the sim card serial to the new one.
- I popped the sim card into my phone.
- Voila LTE speed.
I ran the Speedtest app on my phone to compare it to other tests I’ve done in the past. I was so shocked, i ran the test 3 times! The screen capture of it below is all the proof that’s needed.
That’s right. About 4x faster download, and 19x faster upload!
I’m so pleased to have an LTE-capable device!
I should note that I have not had LTE service in the past 4-hours, I’ve only been receiving 4G.
