Want to DUMP ROGERS, but still use their network !

My building happens to have a rogers base station on the roof. And anyone NOT on rogers gets spotty reception, cuz Bell & Telus towers are farther away (base station map: https://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html )

So I want to continue using this tower.
But I do not want to continue with rogers.

Any ideas?

If you are a minimal user (i.e., talk and text only), Speakout also uses the Rogers network.

Why do you want to dump Rogers? If you don't want to give them any of your money, but still use their network, your options are going to be *very* limited

You can get bell or Telus and use Wifi Calling (as long as your carrier and phone supports it).

If you have an iPhone (and other Android phones, too long to list), use Wifi calling, then you can use Bell/Telus and sub carriers.
