Does anyone know how the cell coverage is around Squamish? I'll be going for a few weeks this summer and unfortunately need 4G's for work. I have T-Mobile so will be able to connect to towers in the area but just not sure how the coverage is. Any beta is appreciated!

Coverage is fine everywhere in town if you have international roaming. I would guess that Murrin and some of the more remote crags may be iffy, but the apron, chief, smoke bluffs, etc should all have good signal as I recall.

Are you kidding me, it is on a major highway to Whistler with thousands of rich yuppies driving up daily,  probably better cell coverage than in the USA

I have T-mobile as well,  Looking at my phone's "Welcome to Canada" txt. it says "unlimited at 2G speeds for data".  I am sure it was saying that it was connected to a 3G network, but just throttled down. You can always swing by the visitor's center and use their WiFi, which is right next to Smoke Bluffs.  Overall, driving around lower BC, I got better cell coverage than I do here in WA.

Best internet on the road is usually at Starbucks, there is one right across from Smoke Bluffs.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
