They don't share towers anymore. When Bell bought MTS they stopped letting Rogers share the towers. That's why some are experiencing less service. Maybe read all the posts.

Before mts teamed up with Rodgers I had no signal from mts.

Ok so everyone else is wrong. Rogers and MTS still share all the same towers.

Was there another thread on this about switching over? I really don't want to be with Telus. Do we have to just take it and be switched?

No. This is my rant on another board from July 29th:

"I received my letter and welcome package weeks ago. Today was the last day for me to switch over and still receive the $20 off per month.

I had calls, emails, mail from TELUS about the switch over and finally decided to stay with Bell MTS. This is primarily due to the free cell-to-cell long distance, which if I switch carriers and my friends/family do not, someone will likely be paying more.

Today, I called the 888 number on the TELUS welcome package to let them know of my decision. Quickly my call was picked up. After a brief conversation, the lady on the other end of the phone told me my contract was purchased by TELUS and there was nothing that I could do. She stated MTS was no more, Bell bought some contracts and Telus the others. I disagreed as I knew her facts were incorrect and then hung up on her.

Next, I called Bell MTS to find out what was going on. After sitting on hold for about 15 minutes, I got through to a Customer Service person. I explained my story and she asked which TELUS number I called initially. Next, she patched me through to another TELUS Rep. I explained my story to this new TELUS REP and was told my account will now stay with BellMTS.

The learnings from this story are that there is plenty of misinformation out there. If you don't want to switch carriers, there are ways to not move your contract over to TELUS."

Good info. I ran three term contracts in a row with Telus in the past and it was horrible. Phone to phone wasn't free, customer service sucked, and now I see their new contracts once done my bell term says no more unlimited data. I left Telus for good reason, and I'm not gonna change over that easily.

Because fido does shit anywhere in the southeast along the border where we spend our weekends. 38 bucks is exactly what you get for 38 bucks out there. City, of course it's gonna work, every phone works there....but that ain't gonna help me....I stay as far away from that town as possible. lol

fido uses mts towers now as well... everyone is allowed to piggyback. Mts is outrageously overpriced... I didn't think I wanted to switch over either... but I needed a new phone... got quote from Bell and by the time they were Done it was almost 1000 bucks for an s8+... went to telus and it was free. and not sure why you'd be worried about unlimited data with all the Wi-Fi around... you'd have to be downloading and streaming an absurd amount. telus also offers for 10$ a month being able to use USA towers if you travel to the states frequently.. not to mention better coverage across canada

So do you have fido? I'm not discarding fido completely, but more curious of the service where you are. However, there's lots of service there, never any dead spots like we have. If there is some real time experience with fido in the southeast, i would always be open to go fido, but I've heard nothing but no service, and that the phones don't even try work where we are.

Someone on another site said an over looked part is a lot phones themselves have crappy antennas , made sense to me. Manufactures can put out junk and blame the service.

I know up in Inwood where my family is from, service went from none at all to still none at all. So it technically hasn't gotten any worse!
