Put it this way: the UNO service piggybacks off a high-speed Internet connection, so when you’re in range of a WiFi signal, there’s no chewing up network minutes. Get it? Fido also offers a “free” Linksys Voice-Optimized wireless router that’s a cinch to set-up at home.
The router’s “V-O” add-on ensures maximum bandwidth for clear, crisp, voice reception as it wirelessly broadcasts or receives content like movies, music, e-mail, videos and more. Useful for home-offices, students or anyone who’d like to chuck their second phone line.
For now, the uniquely named MOTO Z6w is the only phone that provides dual support. Pretty much a carbon-copy of the RAZR interface, the Z6w’s screen appears sharper in colour and larger in dimension. There’s plenty of memory (4 GB) for graphics, sounds and videos as well as a zippy mobile Internet connection – which DOES NOT connect by WiFi.
But the major boon is that no matter where there’s a open WiFi signal in Canada (there’s a prompt to enter an authentication key), the phone could log-on, and your network minutes will log-off.
MOTO Z6w is available for $60 with a three-year commitment and Fido UNO service.
