Answered question

Are there penalties travelling to Coverage areas?

So if I pick Canada Coverage with 4GB of data, unlimited calling and text as part of my plan and travel say to New Brunswick which is not part of the subscription area are there any penalties or downsides? Let say I go back to my hometown once a week per month. During that week I'm there will there be penalties or downsides to my 4GB of data, unlimited talk and text?

Also would I have to turn on roaming or something on my phone, and activate the fizz roaming option if this is considered roaming?

From my understanding also I wouldn't be violating the 3 consecutive month thing by being on a partner network either from Fizz right, since the majority of my time (rest of the months minus the 1 week im in NB) for each of those 3 months would still be primarily on fizz's network?

These concerns are the only thing holding me back from switching to fizz at this moment so any experienced people who can answer these from experience or knowledge would be awesome!

In your example of traveling to New Brunswich the 3 consecutive months of using partner network applies and that is the only restriction at Fizz.
.
"The majority of your usage (calls, texts and data) must be done on the Fizz network.
.
We reserve the right to interrupt or block access to our network of partner providers if you use your mobile service primarily on their networks for 3 consecutive payment cycles."

.
You have to turn on data roaming on your phone as soon as you're out of your subscription zone (https://fizz.ca/en/coverage - subscription zone is the green area )

WEll new brunswick is in Canada so everything will work

If you go outside your coverage your service will just not work,

You just have to make sure not to use the roaming status for more then 49% of a month for 3 months straight

If you stay less then 3 month you will be ok. If not Fizz can suspend your account. But you will not have fee specialy if your Fizz wallet if empty.
