I received an email for the beta, but after I entered my address i got a message that beta is not available and I can only subscribe after the end of the beta period. I live in Orleans. Weird.

I have opened a new thread for Fizz Home Internet that will officially launch this Thursday.

Any more discussion about Fizz Home Internet should go there and this thread should be kept for Fizz mobile.

This way, someone who only has Fizz mobile will not be bothered by comments about Fizz Home Internet and vice versa.

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

I got two but it's useless. No Fizz internet in Ottawa (excluding Rockland).

I suppose all Fizz Internet order put in before Wed 11:59 PM are eligible for the beta pricing, even if the installation date is in the future, but what about plan/speed change?
I've chatted with a Fizz rep Lucian and he seems to confirm that it if it was put in before the deadline, it should be fine, anyone else can confirm the same?

How long does it take before receiving the confirmation email and being able to use the SIM card? Because I signed up last night but almost twelve hours later still nothing.

I signed up to their mobile a week ago, I got the confirmation email instantly and received the SIM card next day.

You signed up last night or activated last night?
Here is how it works:
1. You sign-up (open an account);
2. Order a SIM;
3. Receive a SIM;
4. Activate a SIM;
5. It’s usable as soon as your APN settings are correct.

If it doesn’t work, restart your phone.
Go in your account and have the 2 SMS with the APN settings sent again.
Accept them and restart again.
Manually check your APN settings to make sure everything is correct, edit if necessary.
After your mobile account is functional, go into your account and check if you can add the Internet. There might be a delay. No guaranty, it’s so late.
If the option is still not there after a few hours, log out of your account. Delete your cookies and Internet cache with CCleaner. Change browser. Try again.
As a last resort, contact Fizz by chat and ask for the Home Internet at the beta pricing. Good luck!
I activated last night.

If I go to my account, there are no options to get the two SMS sent again or something like that. Under "Manage my plan" I only have "Wallet" and "Add user". I found the APN settings, I verified 12 times that I entered them correctly, nothing. Actually it's not exactly right: I got 4G signal for like 1 minute at some random point.

When I activate the SIM card, can I choose to start my plan at a later date, or it must start right after activation?
