Re: Speed Test Results Everyone?

These tests were done at my home in Calgary near the intersection of Old Banff Coach Road SW and Coach Hill Road SW using a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 connected to PM LTE. There are cell antennas mounted on three condo buildings about 750m from where I live. As you can see, the speedtest results were much nicer when on the Telus server (first screencap) than on the Shaw one (second pic), which isn't all that surprising considering PM's ownership.

There are a couple of Web sites and tools that use Industry Canada information to map cell sites.


For Ontario - I use LTE Widget that was written by a friend of mine, Steve Punter.

Steve also has a web site with maps for Ontario showing locations of all the cell sites

The purpose of that site is not to show a complete list of known tower locations.  That site is mainly used to provide an apporiximation of site locations by using customer provided data. This way, it helps customers find potentially new towers and the estimated coverage area of those towers.  If no one has ran the program in a particular area, no towers will show up on the map.

In the spirit of being helpful, here is a speed test taking from a rather challenging location for cellular signal.  This is taken today at Yorkdale Mall, The Bay lower level, at small kitchen appliances corner.  The reason why my notification bar does not show a signal is because there is zero bars.  The signal strength is actually 2 asu.  Interestingly, I can load a web page just the same, although it takes a lot longer than usual when on LTE.

A complete tower map would be here: https://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html

 

Combine both Telus and Bell towers to get a good idea of tower locations.

According to this the entire Saskachewan has no PM service?

@hardywang For Saskachewan, Sasktel towers must be added in as well.

Ottawa-Gatineau

 

Average after 2 months different locations

 

Download between 27 to 60 Mbps mostly in the 30s

Upload between 15 to 30 Mpbs 

 

This should give an idea.
