Hi. Does anyone know which (if any) of the 3 major Canadian Network companies is used as local partner by O2. I am keen to know what coverage I will get when travelling across British Columbia.

@Bobsyeruncle I believe O2 partners with Rogers in Canada, but you won't find very good speeds for data. If you're going to be there for any length of time you might want to look into a Pay & Go local sim if you need good data speeds.

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2

I have roamed on Rogers whilst in Toronto / Vancouver, and found speeds to be a lot better than you get in the US, but if you are going to be in Canada for a while and travelling outside of the big population densities then get a local sim and use that for data. 

 

If you have a dual sim handset, you can set the mobile data to use the local sim instead of the o2 sim.

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World
