Funny, sounded like bashing to me. Especially the above part.
"We won't go to Canada again until it becomes part of the US?"
Makes me glad that we aren't really cousins.
As for the best phone coverage companies in Canada.
Telus, Bell and Rogers are the big three phone companies in Canada. Most of them have smaller spin off providers.
Telus - Koodo
Rogers - Fido
Bell - Don't know.
Telus started life in Western Canada. BC Tel and Alberta Tel. Their coverage has been the most established in the West for the longest amount of time. Bell and Rogers have always played a bit of catch up. Your best bet may be to find an American carrier that has roaming relationships with Telus. As mentioned, there is lots of free internet if you know where to look. Most libraries, McDonalds, Starbucks etc.
There are places where coverage is spotty or non existent but what do you expect when you are 100 miles out of the nearest town? There should be no issues with connectivity in most settlements along the route.
