This should be what the standard offer in Canada looks like: $45/month for at least 20GB data and unlimited at 1/2Mbps speeds once over your high speed allotment. But who am I kidding. It will never happen.

I mentioned this promo to my Telus EPP chat and they can only offer the standard crappy EPP offers available now to my employer. There are better marketplace offers out there now than my EPP.

Friends had the same phone on Rogers, totally fine and full bars with connectivity. I switched to Freedom to save some coin since I never leave the city, full bars. Hell, I'm still on Freedom, living on the 17th floor of a mostly concrete building, still full bars and no drops in connectivity.

There's also something also to be said about tower placement and general signal strength in your area and how well it permeates your living space.
This goes without saying.
Not every single Rogers tower is at the same location as the BELUS tower or Freedom tower. So there will be locations where the Freedom and Rogers will be superior to BELUS (due to the proximity of the respective towers).
But overall throughout Canada, you will notice BELUS have a better service than Rogers, and definitely Freedom.

I imagine since Rogers still maintain their 2G network + they invest in the network on their own, while TELUS/Bell don't have the costs associated with a 2G network and costs are shared, their network is much better overall.

You're right about volte/vowifi and 5g.

Same. They offered 20gb unlimited for $60 to me but wanted me to buy out my phone. I told them if thats the case i might as well buy out and go to bell.

Based on my previous dealings with Bell, this price is def going to increase after a year or two.

By how much IDK.

Inside your condo you're probably picking 700 or 850Mhz signal.
While outisde you're probably picking up 2100 or 2600Mhz signal.
Cell signals (especially high band) still have difficulty penetrating through walls, especially concrete walls of buildings.

It's science.
Never had such issue when I am with zoomer. I guess my home is just closer to Rogers towers. My girlfriends freedom always got full speed in and out of our condo. We are at 10th floor and close to the street.

Then just leave again when they shoot the prices up, then they'll come crawling back for 40 dollars in activation fees and a cheap 2-3 years late. The cycle continues.

Just spoke to a rep in Canada, with knowledge about the plan. She said the offer is only available to those who received the email.

Also called and this offer is only available if you received the email, they find you with the offer code that is included in the email not from your previous mobile phone number. I got one for my Virgin Mobile line I cancelled but not for the Bell one.

So if someone had a code from a friend that doesn’t want to use it do you think they could pass the code and offer to someone else? Like Freedom F&F codes? Other than Freedom I have never heard of having to have a code before. If so I need to make some more friends!

Telus EPP heavily subsidizes some phones though. So if you wanted a new high end phone, then Telus EPP is still the way to go vs marketplace offers.
