For years, Nakusp residents and tourists have been limited to mobile companies Bell and Telus and their subsidiaries such as Koodo and Virgin. Finally, those who use Rogers can get signal in the same cellular footprint as the other long-time providers.

“Rogers customers across British Columbia want to be able to stay connected. Now with Extended Coverage, our customers can use their devices in more places across B.C., so whether they’re visiting the hot springs in Nakusp or hiking near Arrow Lakes, Rogers customers will stay connected,” said Vice-President, Sales, and British Columbia, Gordon Nelson.

Extended coverage for Rogers’s customers began on March 4. Through agreements with other carriers, Rogers customers on post-paid plans can access extended coverage in rural areas across Canada where Rogers did not previously provide coverage at no additional charge.

Subscribers can access HSPA service for voice and data. Customers who travel into an extended coverage area like Arrow Lakes or Nakusp, will receive an SMS when they enter the area.
