Rogers Communications Inc. said Tuesday that its gigabit Internet is now available in neighbourhoods across Greater Moncton, N.B. “Increasing our digital infrastructure will help ensure businesses have the tools they need to reach their full potential as part of today’s digital economy,” Roger Melanson, Dieppe MLA and New Brunswick’s president of the treasury board, said in a press release. The company said that its fastest Internet offers, Rogers Ignite Gigabit and Rogers Ignite for Business Gigabit, are its “first wave” in Atlantic Canada. Rogers' release linked the importance of these speeds to the increasing connectivity of devices online and the fact that more people are streaming video. Based on its own network traffic, Rogers said that, by 2020, “Internet use will grow another 500 per cent (versus 450 per cent over the last five years), connected devices in the home will double (from 11 to 20), and video streaming ... will account for 80 per cent of network traffic (versus 55 per cent today).” The company began selling gigabit Internet plans in select neighbourhoods in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area late last year.
