@Samuel4 It's the same coverage as Bell and Telus.
@Samuel4 Excellent coverage across the country. There's a few spots in the mountains in bc that you might lose service. There's a dead zone for about a half hour after the coquihalla summit as you descend into the valley going to Merritt. So there a few of those in the mountains of bc and some up north in the territories but otherwise it's the most comprehensive in Canada.

East of the mountains in Alberta The best Cell coverage in Canada.
I have been in both Ontario, Quebec and Alberta and service has been great in all three provinces. As mentioned when you go high in the Rocky's to the natural parks in Banff or Jasper you may loose signal but my friends who had ROGERS and TELUS also lost connection in those places.
I was wondering for people who travel how the service is around Canada.
In my travels across Canada, my PM service has been better than my fellow travellers who use Fido/Rogers and Virgin/Bell. In eastern and Atlantic Canada, I've had a better signal than them. Could be phones, etc. but it's been a pretty consistent observation.
Telus service and Bell service are interchangeable, there's no network-side reason for either to be better. Subsidiaries (Koodo/Public and Virgin/Lucky) are all treated the same. If there are indeed any real differences between the many flavours of Bellus then they must be imposed by device-side limitations, some phones are configured to be very fussy and finicky.
Sheytoon's network sharing articles explain the technical details in great tehcnical detail, lol.
Rogers maintains a separate network - biggest standalone network in Canada, but not as big as Tell and Bell (and SaskTel, etc) combined. Different hase stations (cell towers) in different places.
Freedom maintains a separate network - or rather a loosely linked set of dense network clusters. Great deal (cheap) if you're always calling from a Freedom Zone to a Freedom Zone, awful deal (no coverage) anywhere else in Canada.
