Some of you have or may have seen some commercials, advertisement and or billboards about FIZZ. I'm going to talk to the ones that haven't heard of it. FIZZ is a carrier service for your mobile smartphone under the Quebecor umbrella.
Are you part of the southern-eastern Ontario or Quebec? If yes, FIZZ is available to you. At this present time, only people residing in this area can subscribe to the service. Subscribers can choose to get coverage than for Canada, Quebec or Canada/United States.
You can get Internet service and Mobile service from FIZZ. I'm going to focus on the mobile portion of it. The service platform is 100% digital which means you cannot just go to a store to get help. You do need to be self-sufficient to a certain degree. You can find the solution hub or the online community via the help option on the main page.
If it does come to the point of being out of your grasp, you can chat with one of the support agents.
Getting online with FIZZ is a piece of cake.
