Fido Plans & Add-ons - Canada
Roaming in Canada
When your travel in Canada on the Fido network, your calls will be consider local or long distance but you will not incur roaming charges. Calling Charges
When you place or receive a call outside of your local calling area, while travelling in Canada on the Fido network, you are charged for airtime and long-distance - you are not charged for roaming because you are still on the Fido network*.
* If travelling to an area in Canada where there is no Fido coverage (such as Dryden, Ontario or the North West Territories), roaming charges will apply as you will be connected to the network of a partner wireless carrier.
Roaming in the United States
Fido covers you everywhere in the continental U.S., plus Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, at very competitive rates.
