New City Coverage

Does "every city" also include every town? (ie. 100% province-wide coverage?)

Calling is free to any city or town in any of Canada's 10 provinces. No more trying to figure out if an area is a free calling city at this time.

At this time the calling rates to the three territories remain the same as before.


The way I read that is it will include every city, town, village, hamlet; and everything in between. Apart from Nunavut, Yukon, and Northwest Territories where calling will be the same as before - for now.

The Fongo app should show you if the call is free, if you have that.

I have tested a few villages in Nova Scotia that were not in the free calling area before, and it works now!

Sweet, thanks for the link, jake! I missed that one; sounds clearer than the tweet.

Thanks, bridonca, for testing it out! That was my next step. :) Glad to hear they ended up being free calls!

Finally, thanks, Fongo! This is great! We have a lot of family in small towns in NL, so we're thrilled with the updated coverage.
