Top Canadian Mobile Phone Companies with Their Parent Companies

There are multiple mobile phone companies in Canada. Some of mobile companies change names time to time, also some of mobile companies shut down business, or, some of them were acquired by other bigger companies. So maybe you are confused so much: Which one is exactly a mobile company when you meet a new mobile company ? Is there any parent company beyond them ?

Let us share a top Canadian mobile phone companies list here (By 2017 Dec), so that we can search out information when we want to register in one of them, such as network coverage, real parent company…

For example, when we see a promo plan from Koodo Mobile, we’d better know their real coverage but we can not only simply get information from their business advertisement.  If we know its parent company is Telus, then we know its network coverage might not bad.
