CityFido Plans Can Now Be Used In Any CityFido Zone In Canada

Share:

Effective today, Fido has revised their two existing CityFido Plans.

Previously, when subscribed to a CityFido Plan, users could only use their minutes within their CityFido Zone, which was one of the following cities: Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Victoria, Calgary, Winnipeg, London, Ottawa, Montreal or Quebec.

Using minutes outside of your zone meant paying a per minute rate of $0.35.

With the revision, CityFido users can now use their minutes in any CityFido Zone. In other words, if your CityFido Zone was in Vancouver, you can now also use your minutes in any of the above cities without incurring additional fees.

For reference, the CityFido Plans are listed below:

CityFido $40

  • Minutes: 2,000 minutes anytime (per second billing)
  • Evening/Weekends: None
  • Text Messaging: Unlimited outgoing from Canada to the US and from Canada to International destinations. Unlimited incoming anytime.
  • Contract Term: Monthly, 2 year, 3 year

CityFido $60

  • Minutes: 4,000 minutes anytime (per second billing)
  • Evening/Weekends: None
  • Text Messaging: Unlimited outgoing from Canada to the US and from Canada to International destinations. Unlimited incoming anytime.
  • Contract Term: Monthly, 2 year, 3 year

If you are a new Fido client, you can sign up to the new revised CityFido. For existing Fido customers or existing CityFido customers, you will have to call Fido to switch to the new revision.

  • I know that the reaction of many people on the internet may be something to the effect of “WHO CARES FODGERS IS $#%!” but I will go on the record and say that Fido/Rogers is slowly but surely improving. Think of where they were three years ago… (but of course, don’t think of the days when Microcell owned Fido! You’ll only cry…)

    Finally that’s great news. That was the only drawback before of the CityFido plans. If you travelled frequently before CityFido was useless

    Does this also apply to grandfathered CityFido plans, like the original CityFido Vancouver unlimited..?? Would the call be still needed to Fido for the switch..??

  • Ex

    Yes. You have to call.

  • Scott

    I wish Fido employees were aware of this change. I just called and was told NO by the rep.

  • Ex

    It’s on the website too.
    LOL!

    Not according to the service rep I talked to. They told me as of right now the old “Vancouver Unlimited” plan isn’t included and I would have to switch to be offered the new feature. To be fair I asked him if he had spoken with a supervisor or someone who might know but he said he had (I was put on hold) and he did say that it had just come out today so all the specifics aren’t “out there” yet and that I should call back in a couple of weeks when more is known.

    Yes, you have to call to switch to the new feature, which would remove all traces of your existing plan.
    Aren’t we on the same page here?

    No we’re not on the same page here. I don’t want to switch from unlimited minutes/evenings & weekends just so I can call for free the odd time I’m in another CityFido city coverage area. Smarty’s original question (how I read it) was does this apply to the grandfathered CityFido unlimited plans. He says nothing about changing what he currently has but asks if he can add it or switch it to include it. At least that’s what I take away from reading it.

    The entire premise of a “grandfathered plan” is that it cannot be modified, used by another customer, or added to. The only action that can be done is canceling it.

    So if someone wants to switch to this new CityFido, they lose their entire current plan — every feature, add-on, and discount — and start fresh on the new plan.

    In other words, this new CityFido plan cannot be used or combined with any other offer.

    you have to “change” your plan to what Fido call CityFido Multi but why would someone like myself want to change Unlimited Vancouver City Fido with unlimited minutes/evenings & weekends and give that all up just to talk free in other cities that I may travel to infrequently. Stupid Fido…how many people would acyually end up using this on a regular basis?
