Dropped signal, serious echo

Calls periodically become silent, then resume. A reverberating echo often occurs, making it impossible to converse. Fido was of no help.

Don't Sign up for FIDO SERVICES

Let this be a lesson.

2 Years ago I requested from the FIDO CUSTOMER SERVICE SUPPORT LINE to upgrade to the non-advertised deal 8GB for $20 from a standard 2 GB plan.

After back and forth conversations with the sales rep, they finally offered the deal, confirmed by their manager. Which was not advertised at the time only known via employee discounts depending on the company you worked for.

After 1 week of date use, I ended up with a HUGE billing for exceeding date usage, over $2,000.

They have no record for me requesting the additional addon. Or refuse to look into the matter.
Funny since all FIDO sales/support calls are recorded.

They also team up with CBV Collection Services LTD.

So let this be a lesson to those planning to get add-on packages with FIDO.

Critical issues with Fido home phone

I signed up for Fido home phone a week ago. Just now realize that there are two completely unacceptable flaws. 1)message waiting indicator doesn't work...apparently it is a known issue that will take at least a couple of weeks to fix...2)dtmf doesnt work with answering services, i.e. you press a key to select something, say "service department", and the callee doesnt get it...prompts again for the same option. Tried this with all phones in house, different company, never works...which basically mean the phone system is useless for calling any sort of company or institution. I will cancel Fido as soon as I can get something else.

Fido, a brand of Rogers, has come out with their very own Home Phone. Similarly to what Rogers Wireless Home Phone, this is, in fact, a wireless subscription with a special modem that you can attach to any regular home phone.

In terms of features, Fido Home Phone does come with a comparable set: such as

  • Voicemail,
  • Caller ID,
  • Call Waiting,
  • Call Forwarding and
  • Unlimited Canada wide Calling.

Rather disappointing to see calling is only Canada long distance if you like to have the USA calling included you'll have to pay extra!

Similarly, unfortunately, Fido Home Phone is not integrated with any smartphone app - a real missed opportunity considering this Home Phone is coming from a wireless carrier.

In terms of the fees, the promo is that if you are an existing Fido customer your monthly cost is $18, $20 with US calling included, otherwise is $30 for non-Fido customers. You still have a one time fee of $65 for the home phone adapter.

GoneVoIP found the long-distance calling, to the US, for example, is significantly more expensive than those of other providers (typical cost is $0.01 vs $0.05 of Fido Home Phone) if you do call to the US a lot you do have an optional package of getting 5,000 minutes per month for an additional $10.

In all Fido Home Phone may be an option to consider - but factor in the comparison other home phone providers such as VoIP Much and then the Fido Home Phone is found to be expensive and very limited in features alternative.
