    Any news about anything near Vansickle, Ontario? Cottage is there and the reception simply does not work, even though its on the map of both Bellus' and Rogers. Going to the big lake barely works, forcing HSPA 850 is more reliable, but some spots you can get a touch of LTE and the rate is better. Overall there is no service.

    Southern Ontario... couldn't tell you much myself. Best check out Steve Nikkel's site:

    Closest to that I've been was Pigeon Lake.

    Well I don't dispute the legitimacy of the tower locations of the first map... It's more of there isn't a tower where I wish there was one.
