Call the US: Here are the Plans With USA Voice Included


WhistleOut
29 November 2015

Some plans have calls to the US included by default, but these are few and far between. Most carriers require you to either purchase a special add-on, or charge a flat long-distance rate per-minute when placing a call from Canada that lands in the US.

If you want to skip the hassle, here are some plans that don't require any extra additions, or long-distance fees, to make calls to the US.

Plans with US calls included

WIND, Videotron, and Mobilicty all offer plans that have calls to the US built-in to the regular monthly minutes allocation.

WIND plans

Right now, only one plan on WIND offers included calls to the US. For $50 per month, you get unlimited Canada and US-wide calling, texting, and picture & video messaging. Data is 8GB at 3G speed, after which you're slowed to 2G speeds with an unlimited data cap.

All of this includes free roaming when travelling within US and calling back to Canada; absolutely not something commonly offered by carriers.

Videotron

Videotron has a $74.95 plan with unlimited Canada and US-wide voice. It's a bit less-generous across its data inclusions than WIND's plan, but data is clocked at 4G, as opposed to WIND's 3G.

You get 1GB of data, as well as unlimited Canada-wide text, photo and video messages.

Mobilicity

Mobilicity has two plans with US call inclusions. Both are essentially identical, apart from a little added security in the more-pricey of the two.

The $45 "Unlimited Value" plan boasts unlimited province-wide calls, as well as Canada-Wide long distance and US long distance. North-American text and picture messaging are also included, as is 6GB of 4G-speed data, after which you're slowed down to 2G. There's even 30 minutes of north-American voice roaming thrown in, for a short trip or two across the boarder.

The $55 "Unlimited Everything" plan has the same unlimited province-wide calls, Canada-Wide long distance, and US long distance voice inclusions. Of course, the same north-America text & picture messaging support makes a comeback. Oddly, you get the same 6GB of unlimited data with this plan as you get with the cheaper $45 option. That's because the $55 plan covers phone protection for if your device is lost,damaged or stolen.
