My Rogers/MTS cell phone is useless at the airport when airside. Telus works incredibly well but MTS/rogers keep going to emergency mode even though there are windows. When I stand right underneath the Telus booster in the back hallway I get full signal. As soon as I leave that area it just doesn't work, or works very limited. Any chance this Telus equipment is interfering with the MTS signal? Even in the departures area it's not the best.

There was a major fire that destroyed the old MTS wireless tower roughly on the airport campus. The immediate response was to deploy a quick temporary tower as a replacement. I am not sure if the permanent replacement tower has been setup yet. This could explain your issue.

It is also worth mentioning you are either with Rogers or MTS not both.
