    Bell coverage in NL

    Ok so clearly since I have way too much time on my hands on a Saturday night I've decided it may be good for comparison's sake to start a network updates list for Bell as well since I've already covered the other two networks operating in NL for a while (Rogers & Eastlink).

    Bell is by far the biggest with the most towers so this may take me a while but here goes. I have chosen to exclude small cells at this point just for comparison against the other two networks based on macro sites only. I may decide to do a separate small cell list in the future for more details when I get more patience lol


    The following is a list of of tower locations and the frequencies that they currently operate on that I know of:

    St. John's Metropolitan Area towers = 57

    City of St. John's towers = 36

    **UPDATES ARE IN BOLD**

    Also Planned towers that I know of (that have been approved by city council):

    St. John's Metropolitan Area = 1

    City of St. John's = 1
    - 13 Linegar Avenue (tower near Shea Heights overlooking Waterford Valley) - *originally proposed in Dec. 2016*



    St. John's Metropolitan Area towers (macros) planned = 1

    I live in a rural area where coverage has gone from poor to pretty much nonfunctioning in the last 6 months or so. I know nearest towers are Bell. Any info on where or who we should complain to?

    I know Telus has an app to report, not sure if Bell does. Most summers for those on fringe coverage it will be worse and return in the winter thanks to less humid air and foliage. I would say call in and hope for the best. If you have a usable signal outdoors you can get a cell booster with bands 5/(12/13/17) aka 850 Mhz / 700 Mhz to improve your indoor coverage.
