Fido Vs. Virgin Mobile

I am currently with virgin mobile but planning to move to fido....as both have Canada wide long distance plan.

Now my question is who has better coverage in Canada.

I know virgin is part of BELL and fido is part of ROGERS......

So which has better network over all.

Thanks in advance

again it all depends on where you are travelling... Rogers is usually a little better out east

If LTE is a concern to you, Virgin has a much much larger LTE footprint than Rogers/Fido. As gur3000 mentioned, just check the maps for where you plan on travelling; The Bell/Telus/Virgin/Koodo network definitely has much better coverage in rural BC and Telus & the BC government has committed to growing that network over the next few years but I can't say I've used either network outside of BC.

Virgin just matched Fido's new $25 plan today. Switched my uncle over to it from his old BYOP discounted plan. Same price for more!
