    How long can you use Roam like home?

    So I have a strange question here. Say you have a Fido line and you go to the US. How long (months, years) can you use Fido roam? Will Fido cut you off if your usage is about 90% US?

    Doesn't say anything about how long you can use it.

    So, you’re saying someone with the $60/10GB plan could move to the US and use their plan indefinitely, years and years, paying $50 extra each month for 10 daily Fido Roam fees? At no point would the service be cut off or extra charges be applied?

    That's right. I can't guarantee this for years but at this time, there are no limits to the amount of months you use Fido Roam. The fee is $6 per day for a maximum of 10 days within a billing cycle while in the US.

    Looks like with the new changes to RLH, this is no longer a viable option. :-(. Earlier, AT&T was about as expensive as Fido Roam but now, it's cheaper to sign up on a US plan.

    Never underestimate Rogers/Fido ability to disappoint their customers.

    Its Joe Natale. He is working overtime to make people hate Rogers. Hopefully Freedom Mobile continues to grow and we get some much needed competition.

    Well, when they got rid Guy because he wasn't anti-customer enough, you knew it wasn't going to go well for customers afterwards. And Guy was no friend to customers overall on his own.

    Nadir, Guy, now Joe. Rogers always seems to get worse and worse, no matter who is leading.
