    EXT Coverage TbayTel

    I am going hunting up in Northern Ontario and was wondering if my Telus phone would go to EXT if there was no Bell (Telus) coverage but there was coverage with TbayTel/Rogers?

    I know there's the only wireless phone up there last year that worked was on Rogers.

    My understanding is that neither TELUS nor Bell roam on Rogers. Only Rogers has EXT coverage on the TELUS/Bell network (as long as you’re outside the Rogers coverage area).
    TELUS: Unlimited Canada Talk & Text, 15+10 GB Data
    Koodo: Unlimited Canada Talk, World Text, 8+9 GB Data
    AT&T: Unlimited talk & text in and between the U.S., Canada, & Mexico, 8+17 GB data

    That's my understanding as well.
    Want to learn more about how LTE works?

    Oh darn. Guess I'll have to get a Rogers or Fido prepaid for the trip next week.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Just as a follow up, the information provided in the thread is accurate and my Telus account would not roam onto Tbaytel/Rogers network.

    I did get a Chatr prepaid account prior and it did work fine though.
