Koodo in Saskatchewan & Manitoba


Just wondering if anyone has personal experience with the coverage in Saskatchtewan and/or Manitoba. Just curious as to how it is, the coverage map almost seems to good to be true.

SaskTel provides coverage to Koodo throughout Saskatchewan, and Bell-MTS/Telus do in Manitoba. Pretty solid coverage.
So the coverage map lives up to it claim? of LTE across sask & manitoba

I used to live in southwest Sask. with Rogers I had no coverage. After switching to Koodo, the coverage is way better and faster. Koodo is partnered with SaskTel in Saskatchewan and since Bell acquired MTS, Koodo will have the same coverage as MTS and existing Telus towers in Manitoba.

Since 2016, The CRTC banned all Canadian carriers from adding exclusivity clauses to domestic roaming agreements.  So as long as the carriers have roaming agreements with SaskTel/MTS (which the big3 and little 3 do)  their coverage should be very good now

exclusivity clauses in current wholesale roaming agreements between Canadian carriers are therefore rendered inapplicable as of the date of this decision.

This explains why Vidéotron subscribers can roam on big 3's networks in Rest of Canada and their plan carries over. This is awesome 😃
Doesn't that mean that Albertans could switch to SaskTel and use SaskTel service in Alberta? This could generate a loss of subscribers switching from the big three to the little three who live in neighbouring provinces...

All have residency requirements.

So I just got off the phone with SaskTel.
They do have a residency requirement.  But porting of numbers would not be possible with the exception of a few Alberta or Manitoba area codes that are close to the border.  The rep said that you would have to go to a dealer to see if they would be able to port the number.

However, sasktel's plans are not really that great.  5gb $70
