The difference between Long Distance & Roaming

Using Canada as an Example: 

Long distance charges apply when:
 
You call outside of your home city 
You make or receive calls while traveling outside of your home city in Canada 
(Exception: When you travel to another Canadian city and place a local call, long distance charges do not apply) 

* Long Distance charges do not vary when using the Hushed App, all of our rates are firm and listed on http://hushed.com/rates/


Roaming charges apply when: when you are outside of Canada and you:

“Roaming” simply means using your mobile device to connect to a cellular network outside Canada. You can take your mobile device(s) with you almost anywhere in the world and make calls, text, email and browse the Web, almost as easily as you do in Canada.

Use your device for voice and data when connected to a foreign cellular network in the city 
you’re visiting.

* It is important to note that one should always check with their carrier prior to travelling to see if there are any traveller roaming packages available to ensure you do not get overcharged.
