Qualification for Telus rural internet offerings includes the ability of the cell towers to handle the volume of traffic these services generate. For the most part, if the tower is not on the Telus Fibre network, it cannot support the residential cellular internet services.

AFAIK, the towers are anonymous to your phone, and there is no way to discern which you are connected to at any particular time.

The internet smart hubs are registered to a single tower so you need to have a certain amount of signal strength potential from one to qualify your address for a hub. There is a trial going on right now for rural hub customers that are just barely on the fringe of a coverage area where they can mount an external yagi antenna on your roof and run a line inside that feeds the hub to boost the signal. What's the nearest town to where you're at? I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Chicnstu thank you!
I live in Louis Creek BC.
There are a few towers in the direction that a neighbors cell booster points in. A bearing of approx 100deg from me. Is there an email I can send you some screen caps from an app that show my location and possible towers? The app has the gps coords of each of the towers as well.
