How good is 4G HSPA coverage? I am travelling to Trois-Pistoles, Quebec later this month (Koodo provides 4G HSPA coverage there) and would like to know if I will be able to still text and call my friends and family in Ontario.

Coverage in this area is not the strongest, but appears to be reasonable. There should be no problems texting but it may be a bit weak for good voice service over much of this area.

Thanks! But you think I may still be able to make some phone calls? I know you said the voice service won't be good, but do you think it would still be possible to make a few calls in some places? I am thinking of upgrading my plan if that is the case.

In that area you'll likely see 1-2 bars of signal most places. It'll work for calling, but quality will probably be pretty iffy.
