Who doesn’t want to visit the second biggest country in the world? Yes, you guessed it right! I’m talking about Canada. Home to the largest coastline, Canada has a lot to offer, from wildlife tours to kayaking, in nature and in the maritime, from skiing and snowboarding in British Columbia to enjoying the resorts and French culture of Quebec, from taking a helicopter ride over The Thousand Islands in Ontario to taking a ride in the Maid of the Mists in Niagara Falls and finally seeing the Northern lights in Yukon.
Canada is also known for one of the friendliest and the most heartwarming locals which makes it a wonderful tourist destination.
With so many unique cities blending urban life to the natural surroundings, it is important to consider the coverage when traveling to Canada so that you don’t lose connection with your loved ones.
Best network providers in Canada
Canada has three main network providers: Telus, Bell, and Rogers. When it comes to coverage, Bell and Telus have the same coverage because both networks share the same mobile network. However, these three big network providers only cover approximately 30% of the vast geography of Canada.
On the other hand, if you only plan to travel in certain regions of Canada then you better check out Freedom Mobile for Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia, Sasktel for the province of Saskatchewan, and Videotron for Quebec. These region-specific mobile networks offer cheaper plans as compared to the big three networks but data speed and coverage can be a major problem because once you are out of a region, you will be out of service and who wants to lose service when you’re traveling in a foreign country? This is why it’s always best to check coverage before making plans.
