Welcome to Rogers 5G Partnership


Advancing 5G innovation in central Canada

In December 2019, Rogers Communications and the University of Waterloo announced a three-year agreement to advance 5G research in the Toronto-Waterloo tech corridor. 

The partnership will focus on 5G research in the areas of engineering, network design, applied mathematics and artificial intelligence. Rogers and the University will also build a 5G network on campus that will test network infrastructure, frequencies and applications in a real world Canadian environment. 

As part of the partnership, Rogers is a founding partner of the Gateway for Enterprises to Discover Innovation at the University of Waterloo (GEDI), a central place for companies to access the full potential of Waterloo’s research, talent and entrepreneurial ecosystem.
