    Fido.

    Nice phones, no contract, and a nice wide range of plans. I've used Rogers and Telus before, and never liked them.

    Telus, I buy my phones elsewhere so I have no contracts to worry about anyway so that advantage of Fido is gone. They have far better coverage than Rogers (at least in the areas that I frequent).

    I switched to Rogers once for a year, then promptly went back to Telus because the coverage was so horrible with all the dropped calls.

    Cantel/Rogers/At&T has crappy reception in some areas, especially up in the NW. I go pay and talk ($5 a month minimum) cause I use the land lines more.

    I think in general, Rogers has nicer phones, but what good is a fancy phone if you can't make or take, but will be forced to fake a call in the mall or a bathroom stall?

    Telus...always have always will, way better covererage and that means everything for me as I go camping alot.

    Evil propaganda... hehe
    Actually in Vancouver Roger is the better provider as they have more towers.

    Calgary... well that's another story (Telus).

    Fido is great for the city, you can use cool phones since it's GSM - Phone rates still very decent.

    Rogers and I hate it with passion. Been a customer for close to 5 years; wanting to switch to Telus or Bell ASAP!
