Rogers and Fido launch “International Wi-Fi Calling” add-on

Rogers recently released new roaming packages but today, along with Fido, have launched an “International Wi-Fi Calling” add-on. There are two price points, $25 and $40, both good for 30 days and gives Wi-Fi calling capable phones (UMA) the ability to make calls over a Wi-Fi connection while traveling.

This could save you a bit more money, the $25 plan gives you International roaming rates and Unlimited Wi-Fi calling back to Canada. Meanwhile the $40 plan includes Unlimited local Canadian calling and long distance, plus Unlimited Wi-Fi calling. The fine print states that “Calls made back to Canada over Wi-Fi will not be charged against shared roaming plan minutes.”

The Wi-Fi capable devices are the following: HTC EVO 3D, BlackBerry 8120, 8220, 8320, 8820, 8520, 9100, 9300, 9700, 9800 and soon to include the 9900, 9810, 9860.
