Rogers is expanding its 4G HSPA+ network out to the Maritimes with an $80 million investment. The investment will help expand the network to cover 94% of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island which includes almost one million more people. Customers across all parts of the region will benefit from faster data speeds and stronger signal strength. Work on the wireless network will begin later this month and new coverage areas will be announced throughout the construction period, which will continue throughout 2012.

Today Canadians are taking a Civic Holiday, which is celebrated on the first Monday of August. In Newfoundland, it’s called Regatta Day, in Saskatchewan it’s called Saskatchewan Day, Nova Scotia call it Natal Day, Torontonians call it Simcoe Day and Ottawans call it Colonel By Day. The list goes on forever.

So if you’re Canadian, you’re probably up at your cottage and not reading BlackBerry Cool. Don’t worry though, RIM’s official previewing of the Curve 8520 isn’t until tomorrow so you aren’t missing much today.
