Rogers begins 700MHz LTE rollout in Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver

Rogers is expanding the available spectrum for its LTE service in Canada, by turning on its 700MHz network. Engadget reports that areas of Calgary, Toronto, and Vancouver will see the benefits of 700MHz at first, with subscribers and AT&T customers roaming in the region able to see Rogers LTE in indoor areas where the signal was previously inaccessible. While it does not offer specific timing, Rogers plans to roll out the extra spectrum bands across the country.




Toshiba claims to produce world's fastest microSD cards

Toshiba has unveiled microSD cards that it claims are the world's fastest. The first to use the UHS-II standard, the cards are UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) enabled, making them suitable for 4K video capture on suitable equipment at a constant minimum writing speed of 30MB/s. The 32GB version offers maximum reading and writing speeds of 260MB/s and 240MB/s, an 8x write speed and 2.7x read speed improvement over its current 32GB cards, with the 64GB model dipping down to 145MB/s and 130MB/s respectively. Toshiba has yet to reveal when the high-speed cards will be released, nor how much they will cost.
