That is not neccessarily correct. It would be correct if coverage was spread out and available across that wide expanse. It actually is not. Most places in Canada have no cell phone coverage. In fact, some fairly populated places in Canada have no cell phone coverage.
The cell phone companies provide coverage in major metropolitan areas and well travelled areas only - and do so at higher costs than comparable in other countries. In the rest of Canada, they've got as much coverage as US providers do there - none.
