You would think that since Fido is a MVNO running on the Rogers network and is a subsidiary of Rogers itself, that as Rogers makes changes to their network that Fido customers would just get it too. But I guess that's too simple and we can't have simplicity in this world.
Yeah it really makes no sense for Fido (and its other flanker brand counterparts) to get shut out from having 5G services permanently, so just wait I guess. I mean is there really much difference on a regular user level?.
I don't remember how long it took Fido to get LTE but I think it was almost immediately when Rogers did
Even though, at this time, we don't offer access to a 5G network, 5G devices are compatible with Fido’s existing LTE network.
We're also continuing to invest in our current network to enhance speed and coverage to deliver a stronger connection!
