    You choose what WiFi networks you use, so if it's a random network it's because you chose to connect to it. And bear in mind that WIND is never going to have native coverage in several Canadian...

    It is frustrating, but remember: AT&T and T-Mobile compete with one another. T-Mobile does not compete with Canadian or Mexican carriers; they are true partners in this.

    You may have lots of glass, but if the glass has a Low E coating to improve energy efficiency, it also has Low E coating to reduce radio signal transparency. (One comes with the other.)

    This is without a special roaming plan. These are the a la carte rates.

    If...

    You probably had your phone set to disable 2G. Rogers only deployed 3G and LTE in Saskatchewan two or three months ago (except for in Regina and Saskatoon, which have had it for years).

    AT&T (prepaid, anyway) doesn't roam on Nemont's LTE, unfortunately. My Canadian phone (on SaskTel Mobility) does have service there but it's Nemont HSPA.
