When would this be a possibility, I live outside of Thunder Bay and would love to have a smartphone. You have no coverage in our area. I would like to see a family plan as well.

It would likely be whenever Telus or Bell put up towers there that support Koodo phones. I have no idea when that might be. My understanding is the local provider has an agreement with Rogers so I don't see them signing with Telus as well. Sorry. (Just to note I have no employment with any mobile phone company so I have no inside information).

Give it time, it's only a few months since koodo was even able to offer HSPA service in Thunder Bay. I believe the next phase will be covering the trans-canada highway up to the Manitoba border. Beyond that is anyone's guess.
