After today, traveling through a cell ‘dead zone’ won’t be a problem for Rogers customers.

Rogers launched its Extended Coverage, which provides wireless coverage to more places than ever before, including across Northern Ontario.

Local customers can stay connected while on Highway 144 between Sudbury and Timmins and several other cell ‘dead zones’ within the region.

When data roaming is turned on, Rogers customers can access other carrier’s networks outside the Rogers’ coverage area.

There is no additional charge.
