Calls sound fuzzy and distorted

People I call are telling me I sound like a robot when I speak via voice call. For the most part I can hear them fine but the odd time they will cut out then return as well. I'm in Cobourg, ON and want to know if there is an issue with the network or if its me? I thought Telus was the best for network coverage but this is proving to be quite frustrating. I switched from Bell where I had absolutely not problems with text or voice calls (I switched because of the savings) but this is making me wonder if I need to go to go back. Please let me know if anyone has any info. Thanks!!

@paulkdavison, Telus = Bell, Bell = Telus.  In fact, Telus owns no towers in Ontario.  The two companies share towers.  Switching between these two brands should have zero effect on coverage.  That said, it is possible that you were using VoLTE with Bell.  Public Mobile does not have access to VoLTE.  This can change voice qualify.

You may try and check the coverage map to see if you're at the fringe zone

@ChuckYeahyour screenshot is no longer relevant as Apple has disabled that selection. It is part of the carrier profile, so end user cannot change it.
