Any Canadians NOT living in the city? (Fido)
I recently moved back home to save some money before I travel in a few months (Claresholm, Alberta), and just before I went down to the Fido store to get a new iPhone I noticed that my mom's place happens to reside in the "Expanded Network" area of the Fido coverage.
There is a small little bit of small print on the site that says that I will incur a $.25/m charge even if I call my mom's home phone sitting in her living room and that ALL unlimited/daytime calling doesn't work.
I couldn't find any information stating whether this only applied if I went out of my local area (say on route to Calgary) or all the time simply because of where I live.
Does this mean that I am forced to pay $5.00/month simply because I happen to live an hour south of Calgary (but people north of Calgary don't)?
If this is the case, does anyone feel this is a total rip off? Why should I be penalized because I don't happen to live North of Calgary?
I personally feel that the policy should be if you live within the normal network area then you need to pay $5.00 to use the extended network because it's something above what you would normal do (traveling), but for people who live in the Expanded Network they shouldn't have to pay.
(Honestly no one should have to pay it, it's not like they can't afford to let people drive an hour out of town and not charge them $.25/min).
Anyway, any thoughts?
