Take note of the various sources of attenuation of your Wi-Fi signal The waves in your Wi-Fi network may be attenuated by various obstacles and sources of interference, causing decreases in speed and partial or complete disconnections of your internet connection. Sources of interference include: Nearby Wi-Fi networks Surveillance cameras Baby monitors Microwave ovens Etc. Obstacles to Wi-Fi waves include: Construction materials (concrete, aluminum, etc.) Heated flooring Mirrors Windows Etc. Recommendation: If you are unable to change your environment to limit sources of Wi-Fi signal attenuation, it would be better to use a network cable (RJ45). A cable is included in the original box of your Fizz Wi-Fi modem. Restart your Wi-Fi modem Unplug the power cable on your Wi-Fi modem. Make sure all the lights on the modem are off once you have unplugged it. Wait ten (10) seconds. Plug your modem back into the electrical outlet. Expect a three (3) minute delay to allow your devices to reconnect to the Wi-Fi network. It is more effective to restart your Wi-Fi modem by unplugging its power cable instead of pressing its power button. Test each of the two (2) frequency bands of your Wi-Fi modem Your Fizz Wi-Fi modem uses by default the to frequency band steering technology. When this function is disabled, the Wi-Fi modem will display two (2) frequency bands, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The modification of this option is possible thanks to the mobile application Fizz Wi-Fi: Choose: ''My Wi-Fi'' Select your Wi-Fi network Select: ''Advanced Settings'' Band Steering ''On/Off'' The Fizz Wi-Fi app is available for free at various online stores (Apple Store and Google Play Store). This change can also be applied through the Wi-Fi modem user interface: 1. Log in at: 192.168.0.1 from the web browser of any device. 2. Log in
An Access Point Name (APN) has the network settings your phone needs to connect to Fizz. The APN must be properly configured so your phone can be “introduced” to the Fizz network. Once your APN is configured, you’ll have access to your mobile data and multimedia messaging (MMS). Even with a poorly configured APN, you’ll be able to make and receive calls and texts. You will also have internet access when connected to a Wi-Fi network. Removing the SIM card from a phone with properly configured network settings (APN) could automatically reset the previous settings. If this happens, you’ll need to reconfigure the Fizz network settings. Installing network settings (Android) By inserting your SIM card in your phone, you’ll receive two notifications to configure the network settings. Install these two configurations. If a PIN code is required, enter 1234. Wait three minutes and completely restart (power cycle) your phone. Resend the network parameters (APN) to your phone (Android) Log into your Fizz account and follow this path:My plans → Manage plan → Advanced parameters → Fizz network parameters → Resend me the notifications You’ll receive two (2) notifications directly on your phone: one to configure mobile data and the other to configure multimedia messaging (MMS). Install these two (2) configurations. If a PIN code is required, enter 1234. If you inserted your SIM card into a device unknown to the Fizz mobile network, chances are you received a SMS inviting you to follow the above instructions. Manually installing network settings (Android) Steps to follow for configuring the APN can vary from one phone to another. Here's an example: Settings → Connections → Mobile networks → Access Point Names → APN Fizz APN settings are: APN: mobile.bm MMSC: http://mms.mobile.bm MMS proxy: mmsproxy.mobile.bm MMS port: 80 APN type: default,mms,supl If your phone
Good-to-know info about Fizz mobile services. Because no one can know everything about something, we tried to group interesting details about our mobile services. You know, those little details that just seem hidden somewhere? Well, here you go! Coverage Consult the interactive map Even if you live within our coverage area, that doesn’t mean you can subscribe to Fizz mobile services. You must live within the subscription area. The coverage area you choose determines the expanse of the calls and texts included in your plan. If you choose the Canada coverage for instance, you can make or receive calls anywhere in the country. But with a Quebec coverage, a call made or receive from Vancouver for example would not be included in your plan, and you’d have to buy a Travel Add-on. If you chose unlimited calls when creating your plan, you can make or receive as many calls as you like when you are within your coverage area. The Quebec coverage area also includes the Ottawa region. Hawaii and Alaska are included in the Canada + U.S. coverage area, but not Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico is included in the Latin America zone in the Add-ons). If you see FIZZ EXT as the network name on your phone, this means you are no longer on the Fizz network. You can use your Fizz mobile services thanks to our agreements with partner networks, but the majority of your usage, however, must be done within your subscription area (whatever your coverage area is). Learn more about the usage limits while on partner networks. Text messages Incoming texts are always free, whether you’re within your coverage area or not, and whether you opted for unlimited texts or not. Premium text messages are not supported by Fizz. As such, it’ll be impossible for you

Is there an internet outage last night? This morning I lost internet connection. But after rebooting the modem, the internet connection came back. It also happens a few days ago during the night, it suddenly lost connection. That day the modem seems to lost connection to the server, but it came back in the next morning. I have the internet service since the beta period and no problem or outage ever since. I was wondering if Fizz or Videotron is doing some server maintenance recently that cause the temporary outage. It will be good to know in advance from an email that it will be some schedule maintenance that could disrupt the internet connection. Do we have a network status log page that we can check any history network status?
I've been with Videotron Internet since July and I would like to move to Fizz Internet since I already have a cell phone plan with them. Will I be able to use the same modem or will I need to return it to Videotron to get a Fizz modem? Do you know if there's a transition time where I'll be stuck offline?
