We normally go to Brereton Lake in the Whiteshell and along the way (Highway 15 and 44) we cannot get signal. Whiteshell is less couple of hours away from the city but we cannot get cell phone signal. This is extremely important just in case something happens along the way. Why is there no signal along the way.

Hi,

The simple answer to why there is no signal is that we don't have cell sites in that area to provide full coverage on Highway 15 and 44.  This is shown in our coverage maps as being an area with limited to no coverage.

Our improvement plans for 2015 and beyond haven't been fully finalized but right now there are no plans to add a cell site in that area.  Of course that can change and as technology evolves there could be other options available to us that aren't right now.

Thanks for your question.
