The service between Portage and Macgregor is very poor. The LTE service does not even reach the west end of Portageyet going east you can get several miles out of Portage. I know lots of people who have the same issue. Is there any hope of proper service in this area.

Hi Gordon,

The LTE coverage in Portage is designed to cover the majority of the city area and it does that.  It just so happens that as part of the way the sectors are pointing to cover this populated city area the signal gets further east down #1 than it does going west towards MacGregor.

Where the LTE service ends it should be covered by the HSPA signal and that will stretch down the highway towards MacGregor.  Our Planning and Performance teams are reviewing the coverage for that area to determine if there is anything that can be done to address any gaps in service.
