cant run Pokémon Go on data

All apps work fine on data except Pokémon Go. I have researched and tried every fix that might be related to my phone (iPhone 6). Airplane mode on/off,,location services on/off, deleting app, restarting phone, etc etc. PoGo works on wifi. It works if I hotspot on a friend's data. The only time it doesn't work is on my Koodo data and I am not over my data limit and it is the only app not working. Any suggestions?

I play pokemon go on Koodo Data and it works for me.
But I am on Android.

Did it use to work for you?  What province are you in?

Thank you Allan and Dennis. Unfortunately none of the tips in Allan's link worked. I've discovered that if I hotspot off of friends' data it works fine, so the problem is not Google Security settings. And if I use my phone to let someone else hotspot, it won't work. It will however work on my phone if I'm using wifi. So clearly the problem lies somewhere in a bug between Koodo/Pokemon Go. I've been trying to find a fix for nearly a month but I'm slowly resigning to the fact that I'll have to change carriers :(. Sad about this as I do like Koodo, but I'm pretty hooked on PoGo

Is anyone else in your area with Koodo having trouble with Pokemon Go too?

I know there was an issue in parts of Ontario and MB last summer for a brief period
