Cell Coverage In Manitoba

  • Updated 9 months ago
Yesterday there was a head on collision on #10 highway north of Brandon. I was on the phone with the 911 operator and my phone kept dropping the call. They ended up having to call me back 5 times to get all of the information. I find this alarming as #10 highway between Minnedosa and Brandon is one of the worst highways for collisions and accidents in both the summer and winter months. It also happens to be one of the worst areas for cell coverage. I find this alarming as I couldn't even complete a simple short phone call prolonging the arrival of emergency crews.
