Our regional analysis assessed how the mobile network experience varies across Canada's major provinces on Canada's three national carriers – Bell, Rogers and Telus. It also compared regional players, such as Videotron and Freedom Mobile, depending on the region our users were connecting from.
In Video Experience, the national winner Telus collects four joint wins — including three with Bell in Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba, and with Freedom Mobile in Ontario. Meanwhile, Videotron once again wins outright in Quebec, with a score of 76 points this time, which places it in the Excellent category. Bell also wins an award outright in Atlantic provinces, which it shared with Telus last time around.
In our regional analysis of Games Experience, Rogers, Telus and Videotron each win an award outright in Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec, respectively. And in the remaining regions,
all three national carriers are statistically tied for first place. However, looking at regional Voice App Experience, none of the carriers win an award outright — Bell, Rogers and Telus collect three joint wins in Alberta, Atlantic Provinces and Manitoba, excluding Ontario, where we saw a four-way split between national carriers and Freedom Mobile. Videotron also jointly won in Quebec, where it was statistically tied with Rogers and Telus.
Moving onto Canada's regional Download Speed Experience. Bell and Telus jointly won in each of the six regions, including Alberta, where we saw a three-way split between the national carriers. In Upload Speed Experience, Bell wins outright in Manitoba while Videotron is the sole winner in Quebec.
The regional 4G Availability scores were more than 90% for each of the operators — national and regional — in Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec. This means our users were able to find 4G signals more than 90% of the time in the above provinces, regardless of their choice of network operator. Rogers wins two awards outright for 4G availability in Atlantic provinces and Ontario, while Bell, Telus and Videotron are the sole winners in British Columbia, Manitoba and Quebec, respectively.
