How fongo works on Rogers ?

Post by Homer1959 »

Stupid question however let me ask it.

I am on Fongo wireless and I would like to understand how its working on Rogers. When I call , is it working like a real cellular and the data deducted is there to pay for Rogers cell services, or is it working no different than VOIP on wifi ?? thanks

You’re getting cellular data only from Rogers.

Fongo Mobile is a VoIP or SIP service.

VoIP services require internet access. Cellular data connection provides that access when you’re not connected to Wi-Fi.

When you use a smartphone that's not connected to Wi-Fi to surf online you're using cellular data.

So Fongo Mobile is a VoIP service using cellular data (Fongo Wireless).
That's similar to running Fongo Mobile on a Rogers Wireless (Mobility) cellular network with a data only plan.
The biggest difference is you have a Fongo Wireless sim card instead of a Rogers sim card.

Fongo Wireless has nothing to do with Wi-Fi.
