Is the Fido Nexus 5 truly unlocked?

I am trying to get confirmation that the Fido Nexus 5 is not locked in any way, and

that it can be used with other carriers SIM when I travel?

 

Or will I have to pay Fido to unlock the Nexus 5?

 

Can anybody who has it in there hands test this, or can a moderator comment on this?

All Nexus devices are unlocked, including Nexus One, Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus tablets. There is no such thing as a "Fido Nexus 5". All Nexus's are the same device straight from Google.

So can the nexus 5 be used with a wind simcard?

I was just in Greece (Athens) and I bought a SIM card.  Tried it in my Nexus 5 and it did not work.

So it has the original KitKat, and not some Fido-ised version of it?

And it will have OTA (Over the Air) updates form Google?

@aqm_android,

For sure 100% the nexus 4 and 5 are unlocked.  The phones come from LG unlocked. These are the ONLY phones with fido that ARE unlocked.
