Coverage in New Brunswick

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?

Telus owns Koodo and Public Mobile so she would get same coverage.

@gordogKoodo and Public Mobile use the same network (Bell in NB).. however Koodo post paid have better customer support.

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

That's waht I would think, but she insists that she had many more problems when she was on Telus1

I heard that Bell has the best coverage there.

Re: Coverage in New Brunswick

@gordogI would say circumstances vary eg new towers going up, older equipment (both cell phones and tower equipment). There are many things that can explain her problems in the past. Unless your friend is competent or you are willing to help her out with all the potential issues, I would suggest just let her stick with Koodo.

Sometimes "brand loyalty" is the biggest factor. Can't argue.

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