From my past honest experience with Fido and ChatR, I haven't had good phone signal with them. I too used to experience problem trying to make calls or receiving calls when I am Inside my own house. My house wasn't even located in some rural areas or country outskirts. I live right in the heart of the city and I still experience phone signal problem in my house, inside a mall, inside some plazas or shops. I only get good signals when I am outside and not under any roof. This problem is so frustrating especially during the winter months when I constantly had to go outside to receive or make calls.
Fido and ChatR data signal is also not very good for me. They come and go often and I had a hard time connecting to internet when I am indoors. For many years, I stuck with these two phone company too thinking that since they run on Rogers Network, their service signal should be good. I used to think that other phone carrier network can't compete with Rogers network and so I didn't bother to change to any other phone carrier.
But one day, something made me changed my decision. My relatives had come to visit me in my house and he was getting very good phone signals, meanwhile I couldn't barely get even one bar inside my house. So I asked him which phone carrier does he uses. He said "Lucky Mobile". I laughed at him and thought he was stupid to use lucky mobile. He mentioned that he gets good signal everywhere he goes and it was worth every penny for signing up for "Lucky Mobile". He did a search online for reviews on Lucky Mobile and the reviews looked good. So he changed from Rogers network to "Lucky Mobile". I didn't know earlier that "Lucky Mobile" runs on Bell network and the same goes for Virgin Mobile.
That got me interested and I quickly asked to try out his Lucky Mobile Sim Card on my phone and really I was amazed how good the phone signal was. Even though the Data's speed were restricted to 3G speed of 3mbps, it was showing 4G LTE speed sign on my phone. I found the data 3G speed good enough for everyday less speed consuming apps use. Streaming videos also was quite fast surprisingly with Lucky Mobile. From that moment on, I was made a convert to Lucky Mobile. The very next day, I ported my existing phone number to Lucky Mobile and I was very happy and satisfied with their phone signals with voice and data connection.
So for anybody who are hesitating about trying out Lucky Mobile, I say go for it without worrying about phone signal problems. They run on Bell network and I have found that Bell network has the best internet network for both phone Data's and Home Wifi Internet in Canada.
