MTS blocking Rogers on North Hill?

Ever since the new tower on the corner of 18th and Braecrest went up, our phones (we are on Rogers) have been having bad reception issues. Anyone else having issues.

This is the only time I have ever had issues with Rogers and now it's ongoing. Frustrating.

Tower

I got some news for you people, The BellMTS tower on 18th and Braecrest isn''t even live yet. So you can''t blame BellMTS for that, even when it does go live it will only improve everything. Rogers and MTS Still share towers.

Is the Bell MTS tower blocking Rogers? Nope. It's not. In fact, with the tower sharing agreement in place until around 2030, it will actually lead to better cell service for Rogers customers. I've used my phone in North Hill for years and service has gotten worse over time because of one thing.. congestion. The tower downtown is just too far away for good, reliable AND fast service in Corral Centre and north of that.  
 
Ever since LTE first came to Brandon a few years back, 3G was still more reliable in some places. Right at the intersection of 1st Street N and Trans Canada, I ALWAYS have LTE switch to 3G or else anything I'm doing (streaming) will just cease until down the hill

Service has just recently tanked for me and not sure why but it's frustrating.

North hill

North hill has been spotty to brutal for a long time. Here's hoping the new tower puts the issue to bed

Mts service

I can say that as an MTS customer - my service on the hill has sucked since they finished building the monster on 18th. Service is spotty at best. Hope you guys are right and service will improve once it gets activated or else it's gonna be a long contract.

Rogers issue

Recently, Rogers has had a 4G issue in Brandon, where some customers were unable to receive and/or make calls. Switching off 4G solved this problem. But the North Hill has always seemed to be bad reception on Rogers - especially in WalMart - the Cell phone black hole.
