Baker Lake Nunavut

I will be spending time in Baker Lake Nunavut. Can I use my Fido service there? Bell Mobility has service there so I was hoping there is extended coverage. The coverage map says no, but I have had extended coverage in other northern communities.  Can you please clarify. Thanks

Hello SillyBunt,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  There appears to be a single Bell tower in the area (see here). You should be able to access that cellular tower as Fido-EXT (extended coverage). In order to use data, you will need to enable data roaming on your device. That said, you should note that cellular tower does not appear to support any LTE bands or frequencies.

 

  How long are you visiting Baker Lake? You should note that extended coverage usage is only meant on a occasional basis.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers
