    I know, everyone uses Speedtest (and thanks to peer pressure, I do as well) but it's worth mentioning that Telus has also been crowned Canada's best carrier in OpenSignal's August, 2019 Mobile Network Experience Report for Canada. That's certainly a mouthful.

    Nationwide Telus came out on top in four out of five categories:

    4G Availability
    Video Experience
    Download Speed Experience
    Upload Speed Experience (tied with Rogers)
    Latency Experience

    Regional Results are as follows:

    Calgary
    4G Availability - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)
    Video Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Download Speed Experience - Telus
    Upload Speed Experience - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)
    Latency Experience - Telus

    Edmonton
    4G Availability - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Video Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Download Speed Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Upload Speed Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Latency Experience - Telus

    Montreal
    4G Availability - Bell/Rogers/Telus/Videotron (tie)
    Video Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Download Speed Experience - Telus
    Upload Speed Experience - Bell/Rogers/Telus/Videotron (tie)
    Latency Experience - Telus

    Ottawa
    4G Availability - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)
    Video Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Download Speed Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Upload Speed Experience - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)
    Latency Experience - Telus

    Toronto
    4G Availability - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)
    Video Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Download Speed Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Upload Speed Experience - Telus
    Latency Experience - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)

    Vancouver
    4G Availability - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Video Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Download Speed Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Upload Speed Experience - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)
    Latency Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)

    Winnipeg
    4G Availability - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)
    Video Experience - Bell/Telus (tie)
    Download Speed Experience - Telus
    Upload Speed Experience - Bell/Rogers/Telus (tie)
    Latency Experience - Telus

    If you're shopping for a new carrier in any of the above markets, hopefully OpenSignal's results will be instructive. Be sure to check the source immediately below to verify what I've copied and pasted above.

    Given the number of 2 and 3 way ties in this listing, I would wager the differences are slight enough that in most circumstances you wouldn't even notice the difference unless you were comparing side-by-side.

    Yeah, agree with turbogeek. All 3 have great networks, especially in urban areas.

    The fact that Telus shows 1.5% higher availability than Bell for 4G, makes me very skeptical of these results.
