• Big Three Be Messin' with Your 10GB Plan



    I'm not sure exactly when 30-day BYOD contracts became exempt from the customary grandfathering that wireless subscribers are used to; maybe this is it?

    Customers who jumped on late 2017's 10GB holiday miracle here in Canada are about to get a $5 price increase, to $65/month. Cash-grabs so far have confirmed from Bell, Virgin, Rogers and Fido. If you think that Telus and Koodo will inevitably join in you're probably not wrong.

    For Fido and Rogers the new rate is already in effect, as of January 3rd. Bell and Virgin are holding off until March—but according to iPhone in Canada (who also whipped up the fancy lead graphic at the top of this post) Bell is also planning to apply the $5 price hike to all of their BYOD plans.

    So what can you do? Someone on Red Flag Deals managed to get a 3GB bonus by calling in to Fido to complain. Your mileage may vary, as they say, and there's no guarantee that this extra data will be permanent.

    Please provide the full details and/or a link. I don't follow how a SIM swap could cause the loss of a Google account or how a SIM could be swapped if you have possession of your phone. Thanks.

    LTE permits ways of partnering on infrastructure that can cut capital expenses. The companies just have to think outside the box.
