Take any other cell phone other than a MTS one out to the Lake for a weekend and you wouldn't be saying that. I had a rogers cellphone for 2 years and it was pretty much unusable at the Lake in the summer. I switched back to MTS as soon as my contract was up. In fact I got MTS TV this year as well and it is far superior to Shaw for picture quality
I really find this to be the opposite. But my in-laws have a pretty crappy tv, so it could be that!
