Try setting it to WCDMA.

What happens when you try to put another koodo sim in your phone or your sim into another koodo phone?

Hey Rob, Do a SIM card pull, wait around a minute, and insert the sim back in
Tried that, koodo came back onto the service list, tried to connect, still not connecting.

I would ask some friends and family close to your area and see if they had services when you didn’t. In Ontario, Koodo uses Bell towers. So it would affect Telus, Koodo, Public, PC Mobile, Bell, and Virgin customers. I would imagine people would post stuff on Facebook about it too. We had a severe windstorm in southern Alberta a few weeks ago and a lot of stuff got damaged including power lines. Luckily, there was no service interruptions. Otherwise, it could be a SIM card and hardware issue.

Koodo uses:

3G HSPA+/WCDMA 850/1900 
4G LTE Band 4 1700/2100 and the new Band 7 2600

It looks like it uses only one of the 3G band which means you may not always have a connection depending on where you are
