My sister uses Eastlink in Nova Scotia. However, when she is about 30 km away from home, she gets a roaming signal and this indicates that she may be liable for extra charges. Strange setup, IMO. In Aus, things are quite a bit different and the rates are not comparable. When I am there, I use one of the local carriers. Public was the best deal when I got back to Canada, according to my friend's son and Whistle Out.
Thank you mimmo. My plan is Canada wide calling and I was not sure that it was for making calls from my home province to locations across Canada or making calls from anywhere within Canada or both. It seems to be both. I mentioned in another post that my sister's Canada wide calling means one and not the other. Living in another country as well, where mobile plans are so much less expensive, I try to keep up with what is the done thing when I am here.
@Metal1967 you are correct but also possibly incorrect depending on the definition of "roaming"
the answer is it depends on the plan you have. ie if you have a grandfathered province calling only then when outside your home province and you call home you will get charged longdistance (which could be considered a type of roaming) , but calls withig the province could be considered local.
