I presently have a Samsung M320 phone from another carrier and cannot get a signal at my home on Nicola Lake. We live in line of sight from a new Telus repeater tower at Quilchena - will Koodo work for me there?

Hi Brian,

All carriers in Canada have about the same coverage. I did take a quick look at the coverage map and you should have coverage with Koodo.

Take a look at the coverage map here:

Brian, know anyone with a Telus or Koodo phone in the area where you want coverage? That's your best bet, ask around.

Coverage maps are subject to local geographic vagaries you don't know exist until you get there. IE: Northern Ontario where coverage maps say one thing but your phone will actually say No Service for hours of road time.
It is getting better though, slowly.
