I recently migrated to the $60/10 Gb plan for my kids and was wondering on the Telus vs Koodo coverage.

I believe they are the same network however is their coverage identical? I heard that Koodo uses less towers that Telus and therefore the coverage isn't the same. If that's the case, what options do I have?

It is the same network. How could they be using less towers when it is the same network?

Proof: Go to your phone's settings. Search for Carriers/Networks manually. If you don't have a Koodo SIM Card in the phone, you will see TELUS, but not Koodo. If you have a Koodo SIM Card in the phone, you will see Koodo, but not TELUS because TELUS' name is replaced with Koodo.

It is the same coverage as the big guys


Who told you Koodo does not have equal coverage as Telus?
