Hello, I live on the north coast (north of Port Hardy) . I have a cell service booster  (Wilson AG SOHO 60) . It works with 3G but not with LTE .  Does anyone know if Telus still provides both 3G and LTE to the remote coastal communities or do they provide only 4G  LTE nowadays ?

Thanks a lot

You can go to this site, and see what frequencies of Record are at any particular cell site. Here are the usual 3G bands, which you can cross check: 3G/HSPA/WCDMA: Band 5 (850 MHz), Band 2 (1900 MHz)

 

Finally, you can usually turn off LTE on a cellphone, and see if the fallback to 3G works in your local area. You may need to move geographically closer to the cell towers discovered from the first link to determine this.
