Hello Arsondude00,


  I understand the interest in wanting access to 5G services. However, I'm not sure where you have found the information you suggested.

  A quick comparison of both providers' offerings would seem to dispute that claim. While the Talk & Text option seems to cost the same, those plans do not include data so access to 5G might be moot. On the other hand, Rogers' cheapest Data, Talk & Text plans appear to be more costly than any current offering from Fido.

  While it's true older network generations tend to get decommissioned as newer networks arise, I don't think the LTE network will be obsolete any time soon. Sources suggest LTE networks will be carried well into 2030 or even at least a decade (see here and here).


  I don't know if, or when, Fido might offer access to 5G services. If they do choose to offer 5G services, it will be announced on


Hope this helps 😀
