Even most Rogers sites built in the last few years don't have gsm on them at all.


Trend is also to skip 3g by some carriers in some locations. There are some locations on coverage maps that only have LTE.

@cellphoneuser1 , really?  You do realize that Public Mobile doesn't offer VoLTE?

Plenty of Bell/Telus small cells now are LTE only with no UMTS. The phone will just fallback to a tower with umts when on a voice call. There are areas like Point Leamington, NL and Hearts Content, NL with only LTE so trying to make a phone call will make the phone go to no service...

@cellphoneuser1 and @jor123 are correct. Not just small cells, there are macro new sites with LTE only.

 

PM users can have full bars and no voice calling capability.

I realize and that means no voice in these places.  See the messages by others about it.

Re: Is lack of 2G network a problem?

All the more reason for voice over lte to be rolled out to all phones. It sucks that areas where coverage improvements were made with small cells, etc. don't see any voice calling benefits. There wouldn't be much point in having a PM phone in a place like Hearts Content where you could text and use data but not make phone calls until within range of a traditional tower, when you could sign up with Koodo, Telus, Virgin or Bell and enjoy that coverage on every iPhone and many android phones...
