Cityfone is a reseller of Microcell service. This means that Cityfone is not a new network, but rather sells PCS services using Microcell's GSM equipment (the same equipment that Fido uses). Therefore there will be absolutely NO difference in coverage and service quality, but there ARE differences in both costs and phone choices.
You can purchase Cityfone handsets at any Cityfone retailer or direct from their web site or toll-free number. You can also use unlocked GSM handsets on their network from other GSM providers.
All minutes are billed by the second after the first minute. Additional options are also available -- see the Monthly Comparison page to see their rates.
