The ABCs of Fizz mobile services.

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 an 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).
