Monthly price will be higher though if you need / want a need phone financed.

Probably due to poor customer service that Bell and Virgin have. Also fido offer is better than this

Beware with virgin mobile

I took a $40/month plan last year with 10GB data.. which should last me 2 years...

And now 10 months into this plan, the plan rate increased to $43

Waiting for black friday to switch as these companies keeps increasing the prices.

YMMV

Rogers coverage outside of Ontario, QC, and major cities and highways in the other provinces isn't nearly as good as Bell and Telus. My family lives in rural SK, NS, and NL, and I don't have coverage on Rogers when visiting them.

I live in Ontario 30 minutes away from Toronto (so in the GTA) and Rogers / Fido service is a couple notches below Telus/Koodo. It was a shocker to me as living in Toronto Rogers/Fido was always great. But now the only thing I regret moving from Koodo to Fido is the network quality. Too bad their winback isn’t matching the Fido 45/25 plan for me :(

I don’t travel outside Ontario. For me the area I live matters most and rogers is a winner here

Does your Rogers plan have extended coverage?

Most of Rogers plans qualify for Extended Coverage. Extended Coverage is roaming on Bell and Telus towers.

Bell and Telus do not have towers in Saskatchewan. SaskTel shares there towers with both companies

Wireless Network Sharing, Canadian Style
TELUS and Bell achieve their out-of-region coverage through a reciprocal network sharing agreement referred to as multi-operator core network (MOCN). Basically, both companies share their radio access network but operate their own network cores.

More than just co-locating on the same tower or sharing backhaul facilities, network sharing gives customers of either company access to the same antennas and eNodeB base stations at each cell site in their respective networks.

The two companies share their 3G and 4G RANs in different parts of Canada. TELUS builds cell sites in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, in Windsor, Toronto and Ottawa in Ontario, and in Montréal, Québec City and the Gaspé Peninsula in Québec.

Bell builds out its network from the eastern part of Canada to the midwest except for Saskatchewan, where SaskTel owns the RAN that it shares with both companies. Bell also has some cell sites in British Columbia, mainly in Vancouver.

I don't use Rogers, because when my wife was with chatr a number of years ago she had no service at her in-laws or my parents' house. Her brother was in Rogers in St. John's a few years ago and service outside the city was terrible. I haven't deigned to risk it given the price for Telus or Bell flankers is generally the same as Rogers flankers.

Yes, Bell and Telus use SaskTel towers and RAN in SK, similar to the way Bell and Telus share towers and RAN outside of SK. That partnership is why Bell and Telus (and SaskTel) coverage is generally better than Rogers.
