Fido has announced today that it is adding Fido Roam to its Fido Pulse plans so customers traveling in the US can roam for $5 per day. With other international destinations, the bill doubles: it will cost $10 per day to keep your Fido number instead of buying a SIM card from a local carrier.
So, according to the new Fido Roam option, if you are traveling to the US (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands) or other destinations in Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, South and Central America, Asia, South Africa, Oceania, and the Middle East, Fido will charge customers for a max of 10 days per monthly bill per zone.
“Fido Roam is another great value add for our Fido Pulse plan customers. It’s affordable and easy to use so that our customers can worry less about finding a Wi-Fi connection and focus more on doing the things they love while travelling,” said Nancy Audette, Vice President, Fido. “We heard from our customers that they want to roam worry free, and that’s why we’re offering the ultimate roaming solution.”
As detailed in the announcement, this means up to 21 days of Fido Roam with no extra roaming charges in that month. In other words, Fido customers will be billed a maximum of $50 per month if they are roaming in the US, and a maximum of $100 for any of the aforementioned international destinations in that given month.
Fido Roam will be available from mid-May to new and existing Fido Pulse plan customers. Will you jump on this?
