Cell Service, Head/Kenneth Lake?

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with getting coverage at either of these lakes?
The Rogers map shows they have EXT coverage.  But looking for first hand knowledge.
I know a day phone would be better, but it's not in the budget.  Just looking to talk to the wife and little one a few times.

I think you will have a reliable EXT signal there. I use Rogers and had a decent signal on Lake Louisa in October.

We had service on Kenneth fall 2021.

Head is hit or miss. Campsite #5 and in the water surrounding the campsite it's pretty consistent and good service. Further down the lake and on Kenneth it's still there but it's a bit less reliable.

If it's for something important, don't rely on cell service. Purchase or rent a SPOT / InReach / Zoleo. If you don't bring one of those devices, your best bet will be to paddle to the area around Campsite #5.
