TELUS and Bell. Between the two you get likely the best coverage out there.

I had a Telus cell when I moved here but got no service at all unless I stood out on the road :( Even Shaw guy had trouble connecting my cable with his Telus cell

All networks have weak spots. You can refer to http://www.coveragemapper.com/maps.php to compare networks for your area.

It's your apartment then. My old apartment on the top floor had 0 coverage. I go on my balcony and perfect signal.

sad news but thanks Chadwick. I gather a cell signal booster wouldn't help then, just wasting money buying one?

Up to you but most are a gimmick. The ones that work cost alot.

If your signal inside your appt is zero, but outside the front door is passable, then a booster may help. But if there is no signal to begin with, 10 x zero is still zero.

Visit the weboost.com site as a point of departure. Check out the installation instructions. If you can't respect the conditions, don't waste your money.

Check out the coverage map.  Not sure if that may help

Or, you can type your location into the cell tower locator below and get a rough idea as to how close you are to Fido (Rogers), Koodo (TELUS) and Bell cell towers, (if applicable).

I have the same problem, in the house no signal, outside one bar. If I sit in my truck I get all the five bars with a very inexpensive signal booster where the phone sits in a cradle / amplifiers with a small antenna on the roof.

Tiz, you got a link to the signal booster you bought?

Designed to be used while in cradle, so bluetooth headset probably a must. Newest version:
