Countries for the 1000 minutes of international long distance

I've been told by the shop assistant that there are 11 countries on the list included in the 1000 minutes. 


Can I please see that list?



Thanks in advance!



Hi everyone,


We'd like to provide clarification regarding the add-on, as we offered several in the past. Currently, this one is available for $5/month.

1500 international long distance minutes each month for calls to India, China + Hong Kong, UK, Mexico and Bangladesh.

You can see it on this page

Some of our customers also might have another add-on which is "1000 International Long Distance Minutes to select destinations" and it includes calls from Canada to India, China + Hong Kong (excluding Macau and Taiwan), the United Kingdom, Mexico, and Bangladesh.


As we mentioned in one of our previous post, the countries can differ depending on which add-on you have. We advise reviewing the countries on your invoice to prevent any confusion. 


Hope this helps.

I have the BYOD plans with the 1000-min calling internationally.


I want to change a new iphone and want to have a unlimited add-on calling USA. My question is:


If I change to a new phone with Fido and do an upgrade for the plans, shall this LD plan still be kept?


If I want to add on the unlimited call for USA, can I have both the LD for 1000 and US at the same time?


Thank you!

Hello Misterdd,


  Welcome to the community!


  As far as I am aware, that 1000 International minutes was a promotional offer available on certain plans and not an add-on per se. If you were to change plans, I don't think that offer will migrate to your new plan. Unless they have another current promotion with that same offer on the new plans, you'll likely have to forfeit that promotion when you change plans.


  If you chose to keep your plan (and the 1000 International minutes), I believe you should also be able add the Unlimited US calling add-on and have both options available to you.


Hope this helps 😀

Hello Emvipi,


  Welcome to the community!


  As far as I am aware, I believe these are the Countries included with the 1000 International long-distance minutes:


  • Australia
  • Bangladesh
  • China (excluding Macau)
  • Germany
  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Italy
  • Mexico
  • Taiwan
  • United Kingdom

(see here and here)


  I am not aware whether they have added an additional Country to that list or not.


**edit** You should note that long-distance (LD) calls are charged airtime plus LD. Those 1000 minutes are only for the LD portion of the calls, it does not include airtime. If you have a limited amount of airtime minutes (ie 500 Canada-wide minutes), you would be charged airtime for the LD calls if you have exceeded that limit.**


Hope this helps 😀

Do you know who might know? 


PS. thanks for the heads up regarding airtime.

Hello @sainmym,


Depending on when you got the 1000 minutes promotion the list of countries has changed this is the list of countries that are currently included.

  Hmm, that's interesting. Thanks for posting!


@FidoSolutions Could you please verify whether the list provided applies to all 1000 International minute promotions or only to newly obtained promotions? If it only applies to newly acquired promotions, perhaps Fido might consider providing an alternate name to prevent confusion. On the other hand, if the list for the Countries has been changed across the board for the promotion, could you please update the information in FidoNick's post above so the information provided is consistent.




Hey @Cawtau
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Smiley 

What @KAPABLE-K said is correct, the list of countries does change depending on when the customer received the promotion.


If customers keep their previous promotion though, nothing changes for them.

Hope this helps and clarifies! 

Hello Sainmym,


  Welcome to the community!


  Just to clarify, do you have the 1000 International Minute promotion or the 1500 Minutes to Select Countries add-on (see here, under Calling)? The latter add-on does include fewer Countries and Italy would not be included. You can view the included Countries on the Add-on page. Is it possible you have the add-on rather than the promotional offer?
