What is the loyalty discount and how long do you have to have been with Fido to be eligible?

Also, is it still available if you're on the 2 year contract (although not really a contract - just a tab on the tablet)?

And finally, is this something you have to fight for - or simply call in and they will apply it if you're eligible?
Just ask, there's no fighting.

100mbps with Virgin, 50mbps with Fido in the sq1 mississauga area. 5G is not needed with these available speeds, since 5G has weaker coverage it's going to cost more.
What is your source that 5G is weaker coverage? 5G is needed to address the ever increasing data usage for future applications like self driving vehicles.

Sorry, I thought 5G will be using only the higher frequencies but can use the existing lower ones right now.

Likely 5G will use higher frequency, but existing frequencies can be repurposed. Why do we still need 2G?

Commercial deployment. From those credit card terminal to equipment are not capable of the newer standards unless the company chooses to upgrade or the telecoms find it unprofitable.

Is there any other advantage of porting current mobile number to Fongo apart from just keeping the number? Is it possible to use simultaneously Fongo and ported number withing the same app to receive calls? Any other drawback like
it is not possible to text short codes, or receive short code SMS source

That's the whole point. Port the number you now have (and presumably like) over to Fongo. This is the number people will call you on and text you on. Subscribe to Fongo's text plan if you use texting (or get a TextNow account and use it to do free texting.) Leave Fido's assigned number as is. Use it only to receive short codes, for which there's no extra charge.

I would like to mention.

For those who are with Fido who plan on getting this deal don't forget to refer yourself as this would qualify as a new line.

Free texts in that case will be from my old number or fongo number? My question was about simultaneous use, will I get 2 numbers to use at the same time in the stand by mode?
