I have an iPhone 4s on Koodo...when I went to Dauphin last year, the phone didn't work - voice or data. Can I expect the same this year? This is really my only complaint with Koodo, but it's a big one and may be the reason that I eventually switch over to Rogers...

MTS signed a deal with Rogers giving them exclusive access to their towers. Anyone else has to build their own, which cost an average of $150,000 apiece and cover a maximum of about 23 miles. It's going to take a while.

Actually, at last report, Verizon was looking to buy Wind, who do only have service in major cities (and the GTA corridor). They'll be in the same position of having to build their own towers a $150,000 a pop.
