Switching to Telus won't help you one bit. There is only one cell tower in norway house they all share the same tower. The Tower gets a signal from a Wireless Backhaul Shot from a nearby breakout norway house is far from the main fiber line that runs from winnipeg to gilliam up hwy 6 and 280.
So the only way for BellMTS to give you a connection is threw the Air. The backhaul will easily get overloaded the more users you put on the tower thats whats causing the extremely slow speeds.

Drilling fiber to that tower in norway house is the only solution to help you guys out which will cost millions and BellMTS will never do that without some kind of a grant. It would take them 50 years to break even. IF norway house was the size of thompson they would do it. Maybe even then they wouldn't lol. Our network is a joke. But its all about the money to build a solid reliable fast cell network. And planning the right tower locations.

No solution that's the way it is. Unless fiber optic comes to the community.

Does Rogers have access to that tower? Or just MTS still?

Not sure how accurate it is but looking at the Canadian Cell tower map Rogers has access with MTS and Bell.  All at 850Mhz
