Home to winding rivers, pine forest, gentle mountains and the stunning Bay of Fundy, the province of New Brunswick is surprisingly geographically diverse given its diminutive size.
Not only is New Brunswick chocked full of unspoiled wilds, but generally decent cell phone coverage. The majority of the major carriers cover over 75% of the province, meaning that you're likely to find reception no matter where you are, depending on which network you're on.
The coverage situation is of course a bit nuanced, so read on to learn more about who provides the best cell phone coverage in New Brunswick, and where.

Big Carriers vs. Small Carriers in New Brunswick
For your info: There are dozens of small carriers that run on the major networks. These carriers are called MVNOs for short and "Mobile Virtual Network Operators" long. MVNOs purchase network service from the major providers and that's where you come in.
If you're interested in Telus's coverage, for example, but are looking for a better deal, PC Mobile, Koodo, Public Mobile, and PhoneBox are just a few of the smaller providers you'll want to check out.
