Rogers makes $109M New Brunswick investment
Rogers Communications Inc. has invested $109 million in the Canadian province of New Brunswick.
As part of the investment, a cable network upgrade is underway primarily for the Campbellton region, the Acadian Peninsula and the western side of the province. The upgrade includes adding Rogers’ full channel lineup, and adding VOD and HD services - a move away from “bare-bones,” said Ken Marshall, president of Rogers in Atlantic Canada.
Rogers’ New Brunswick wireless network will see a 50 percent expansion, which will increase existing coverage in urban areas, connect highways and add coverage in places such as Campbellton and the Acadian Peninsula.
The investment also covers a 15,000 square foot expansion of Rogers’ Moncton Customer Care Centre and the creation of 244 new jobs. Rogers has already invested more than $140 million in the province.
