What’s considered long distance and what’s not?
For outgoing calls
An outgoing call is a call sent from your Koodo phone. Your outgoing local calling area moves with your physical location. If you dial a phone number that's local to your physical location, it’s considered a local call. If you dial a phone number that’s long distance to your physical location, then it’s a long distance call. Your own number doesn't matter!
For incoming calls
An incoming call is a call received on your Koodo phone. Your incoming local calling area is the geographic boundary associated with your phone numbers. All calls received within that geographic boundary are local. All calls receive outside that geographic boundary are considered long distance.
1. The airtime required to connect your calls is drawn from your anytime minutes. If you exceed your anytime minutes, an overage rate of $0.60/min applies.
2. Calls to satellite phones are charged per the satellite provider rates and are not based on the country the call terminates.
3. Calls must originate from within Canada. Anytime minutes apply. The airtime required to connect your calls is drawn from your anytime minutes. If you exceed your anytime minutes, the overage rate will be $0.60/min plus the per-minute rate for the country you’re calling (Long Distance Saver rates if you have the add-on, Pay-per-use rates otherwise). The Long Distance Saver is not available in Manitoba.
