Canadian Top Mobile Network Operators
Canada is a country with a serious monopoly on telecommunications and mobile services. The cost of telicommunications and mogile services has always been high.
There are some small telecom or mobile operators in Canada, but most of them have been acquired by a few large operators, or are distributors of large companies.
Below is a list of Canadian top mobile network operators and their sub-companies (Note: not all sub-companies are listed here).

1: In the recent years, it seems that Rogers' subscribers have surpassed Bell Canada to become Canada's No. 1 mobile operator
2: Bell and Telus have an agreement to share their radio network. So theoretically the network coverage for Bell and Telus should be the same.
3: On March 15, 2021 Rogers and Shaw announced an agreement for Rogers to purchase Shaw, but Canada's competition bureau has not approved.
