So I switched. I own a LG G4 that I got with Rogers. It is now unlocked through them. I had to change the APN settings to originally get up and running. Sadly though I'm lucky I get 2 bars anywhere. Sometimes, miraculously, I get full bars. I used to use my own data at work because it was better than our wifi. Sadly that is no longer the case. Ideas?

Take a look at the cell tower map and see what is close to you. 
Rogers: Red Towers
Koodo: Blue and Green
It could simply be that Rogers has towers where Koodo doesn't as they tend to have towers in more "remote" areas.

Funny thing is that, while on Rogers, I kept getting put on the Telus network through expanded coverage, then I switch and this. I'll check it out. Thanks.

Sadly after checking, I should have better coverage where I am in regards to the towers.

If you got put on Telus's network, I see no reason why it wouldn'T work right now. Also, I get 1 bar at my house, but I can make calls perfectly right even with 1 bar.

You've noticed the cruel irony.
