PREPAID - Koodo VoLTE Changes - Manitoba
Got this message this morning on my spouse's phone, so we called in. Apparently they are upgrading (translation: shutting stuff down) areas of Winnipeg and Brandon to VoLTE service only, and of course the prepaid plans do not qualify. We are most likely going to wait until after March 16 to see what the voice coverage ends up like. Of course they offered to move us to a postpaid plan. Seriously, there is no technical reason for this; both our phones AFAIK are VoLTE capable, they just don't want to support it. I'm considering a CCTS complaint.Koodo: As of March 16, 2021, our Prepaid network in Manitoba will be changing and select areas of Winnipeg and Brandon may experience reduced calling coverage. Data speeds will remain unaffected. In order to maintain the best calling coverage after March 16, 2021, changes will need to be made to your account. For more information, please call us at 1-866-995-6636. Free Koodo Msg
I do have a question though. Does anyone know if similar things are happening or have happened in BC, particularly in the Victoria area? We are heavily considering a move to the coast this summer, so would like to know if this is an issue there.
