Coverage in Canada

Recommended Posts

I'm going fishing in Canada in a week and wanted to know if there are coverage maps available? I'm going to be on an island that is about 90 miles north of International Falls in Eagle Lake (century lodge). The coordinates are 49.547155,-93.054543.

When I talked with Sprint they said the don't have coverage maps of Canada, but I thought someone on this forum might have more information.

THe cost is minimal ($2.99 per month), and I'm only going to be there for 5 days, but I don't know if I could really get any coverage. I have not been to this place before and have had issues in other remote places in Canada.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Canadian CDMA2000 providers in Ontario are Bell and Telus. At your indicated location, it looks like you might have CDMA1X coverage, most likely from Bell, which is the wireline incumbent in much of the eastern half of Canada. You can view coverage maps online:

      Given the fact that Virgin has access to Extended Coverage ever since it's Inner Circle plan still now with it's current one at least according to customer service. Shouldn't Virgin be using PRL 55070 like it was with Inner Circle or is 7080 correct? I feel like there's an issue that isn't being paid attention too. Does PRL 7080 have the necessary stuff to make the device roam on Sprints extended partners.

      When Virgin Mobile introduced their Inner Circle plan they added Extended coverage giving them the same coverage as Sprint Postpaid. And a few months ago when Virgin did away with its Inner Circle plan and its iPhone only to the current plan lineup and devices I figured they'd backtrack on the roaming and go back to Sprint only. While they may not have updated their coverage map it would seem they are not allowing roaming as my LG Tribute Dynasty which is compatible with US Cellular roaming is being restricted and blocked post activation. Before hands free activation began I was able to go into the devices network and roaming settings and switch on voice roaming, which worked, it immediately connected to US Cellular, then the hands free activation started which couldn't complete due to no data until I switched on wifi, but after the device rebooted, the voice roaming was turned off and greyed out so it couldn't be switched back on.
      I know this device is capable of roaming, it has band 12 and band 5 for LTE and the CDMA band necessary to roam onto US Cellulars CDMA network, which again it was able to due prior to activation. If Virgin Mobile is going to continue having roaming as an option then it should work otherwise they need to remove it from their coverage map. I've attempted to take the issue up with Virgin but they tell me that they'll help me with any other issue, except roaming. I believe it has something to do with the PRL since it is what determines the devices roaming. I found a old Virgin device from before Inner Circle started, in it was PRL 7080 the same one as it has now, back then Virgin was the home network on Sprint only, no data or voice roaming.
      I don't know where the issue is with this and I'm hoping after filing a complaint with the FCC which has been served that it is either corrected and fixed and roaming starts working, or Virgin removes it from their coverage map if they're not going to allow it. I've asked customer service if the coverage map and the roaming on it applies to current customers or if it was just Inner Circle and they say it does apply to the current plans. If so, and if I have a device that is compatible (LG Tribute Dynasty), why is it being restricted.

      Tell me what you think.

      Does Sprint have an LTE roaming deals with any carrier anywhere currently?  If so, does it show up on their coverage map?

      Any S4GRU members going to the Super Bowl or planning to be near the stadium? Could you let us know how Sprint's coverage is?

    • They get had a plan this whole time. TMobile has been buying up tons of massive mimo equipment to deploy it ASAP. AWS,600,700 will go on the Sprint keep sites. Sprints PCS and 2.5 on all TMO sites Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • T-Mobile & Sprint have had 2 years to plan the network integration. If they have not figured out what to do in each site down to the size screws to use I would be severely disappointed.

    • Silly me rather then ordering the SIM kit from Sprint due to ignorance on my part I obtained this on eBay. When I enter the ICCID into the Sprint Activate tool it says it's invalid. I see there are also cards with the same Part number that have a "A" instead of the "C" and wondered if that might be my problem because this site says the iPhone 7 needs an "A". https://www.sprint.com/content/dam/sprint/us/en/campaigns/byod/compatible-sims-2019/compatible-phones-sims.pdf I have subsequently ordered and am waiting on the official Sprint SIM Kit hoping I will have better results. I also wonder what validation Sprint does to determine a ICCID is valid or not.
    • You could be right, however, most of us members on S4GRU have used Sprint for years.  We were not users of T-Mobile.  Do we really know how many screw-ups they had combining other networks?  We were not there using it.
