Roaming in Canada.

Please take note that MTC's roaming partner in Canada, Microcell Connexions, operates a GSM 1900 network. This means that you need a Triband Cellular handset - it operates on a 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz network. Both Motorola and Eriksson have handsets available. Alternatively you could rent a handset once you arrive in Canada.

MTC continuously updates its coverage and capacity country wide. This map below indicates expected coverage for 2 Watt handheld cellular phones, and will increase with the installation of a car kit. Making and receiving calls is only possible within the coverage area. Variation in coverage depends on terrain, building structure, atmospheric conditions and the weather. Coverage is last updated in November 2001.
