Lightbulb Best Way to Stay Connected for Work? Vancouver to Toronto

Hello fellow RVers! My husband and I are semi-FT and considering a trip from Vancouver to Toronto from late June 2022 to September. I am working from the road and while my schedule is flexible, I must be able to conference via Zoom etc., at least 3-4 days per week. Right now, we live in the US and I have Verizon Business plan and an AT&T hotspot which has covered most of our bases as we traveled across the US.
What is my best bet for having the most reliable connectivity trans Canada? FYI, we would be mostly sticking to route 1.

Anybody's working experience/advice is welcome. It will make a difference in whether we feel like we can really do this trip at all.

It'll probably be expensive.

We've done cross Canada many times over the years. Found in the West Bell towers have given us pretty good coverage but as soon as we've got into Northern Ontario hubby's Telus phone is all that would work in certain areas. Of course things are improving all the time. I have been told by others that T-Mobile has pretty good coverage up here, so might be worth checking in to.

Canada is known for one of the highest priced cellular/data services in the world so if you can get a plan down there to cover you up here worth looking into but our major 3 carriers are TELUS, ROGERS, BELL. You'll get different opinions on who offers best coverage based on personal choice just like diesel versus gas debates. Freedom Mobile has come into the arena quite popular lately. So check into those.

When we go down to the USA we typically buy Verizon or resellers of prepaid packages as they are way cheaper than us adding on a US travel plan offered here.

Hope the above helps a bit.
