After weeks millions of Canadians suffered from a 19 hours telecommunication outage that impacted internet, emergency 911 calls and other services, Rogers announced a $10 billion investment over the next three years into AI, testing and more oversights.
“I believe this is the only responsible way forward and I am personally committed to making it possible for all Canadians”
CEO Staffieri said in a letter on Sunday. He also stated that the networks will be physically separated: Wireless and internet services to avoid a full outage again.
The government has demanded telecommunication companies to develop communication protocols to keep people better informed.
