Long distance rates are changing and we'll be introducing a new rate for long distance calling in Canada.
New $30 Pay As You Go Bonus Card
The new $30 Pay As You Go card will give you $40 worth of calling. That's $10 worth of FREE calling. This card will have a 30-day expiry period and will cost just 25˘ per minute for local Canadian calling - our lowest rate ever!
911 Wireless Access Fee
On the first day of each month, a one-time fee of 25˘ will be withdrawn from your Pay As You Go account to cover the cost of providing wireless access to 911. This fee is already paid by our "regular invoiced" customers and is charged by most of our competitors on their prepaid service. Calls to 911 will continue to be no charge.
Free Visual Message Waiting Indicator
We'll let you know when you have voicemail messages waiting for you! This new "no charge" service will alert you on your phone screen when you have a new voicemail message (only available on Digital Pay As You Go phone models with voicemail service). To get Visual Message Waiting Indicator - request it by calling *611 from your Pay As You Go phone.
The new rates noted in the chart below will be the amount deducted from your Pay As You Go account when you place calls from your Pay As You Go phone or use a Pay As You Go calling card from a landline phone.
