Koodo 3G Coverage

I am looking to purchase a phone with the following network compatibility: [ 2G GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 and/or 3G 850(B5) / 900(B8) / 1900(B2) / 2100(B1) and/or 4G LTE 800(B20) / 850(B5) / 900(B8) / 1800(B3) / 2100(B1) / 2600(B7)

I am aware that it will most likely not function properly on the 4G LTE network. However, I am wondering if Koodo's network includes 3G coverage, as I cannot find a map for it. Someone made the claim here that 4G HSPA+ is the same as 3G coverage, and I know that I have 4G HSPA+ coverage in my area, so I'm wondering if anyone can verify that the 3G networks compatible with this phone are the same ones available through Koodo's 4G HSPA+ coverage.

Yes hspa+ = 3G
They just call it 4G for marketing.
LTE is really 4G

So it will work fine with that network compatibility so long as I have the HSPA+ coverage?
