Re: Coverage in New Brunswick

Here is a coverage map for PM.  https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/bc/coverage

PM uses Bell and Telus towers so generally good coverage in most urban areas.

Re: Coverage in New Brunswick

@gordog Telus, Koodo, PM, Virgin Mobile, Lucky Mobile all use Bell's towers in NB. Coverage for all of them is identical.

I am in SJ, NB. 

 

PM coverage is excellent. Was with Koodo.

 

There is no doubt that Telus/Koodo/PM are using same tower so they are identical.

I'm suggesting that a friend switch to Public Mobile from Koodo.  She's reluctant to do so even with significant savings for the plan that she needs as she says that if Public uses Telus' cell network, she's had problems in the past.  I thought Koodo uses the same network.  does it make sense that she gets better cell coverage with Koodo?  Will she run into problems with Public?


As far as I know...Koodo and Telus share the same backbone. Public Mobile should use it as well.


They do, but PM engineering recently said "PM calls are handled and operated on a different platform so you can say they are somewhat [lower priority]but nothing drastic since it is using the same radio frequencies."

 

I was on Koodo and am now on PM in Ontario. In my experience, I get more call drops on PM than on Koodo, but I've had tickets opened and they're looking at fixing whatever's going on apparently.

Who said this? The only difference is Koodo has VoLTE and PM does not. If you use a non-VoLTE phone on Koodo, it'll be exactly the same as PM for voice calls.

 

There's no prioritization between the brands.

Bell and Telus share towers across Canada.  Here is a good site to use to check tower density in your local area.
