• Big Three Data Deals - Week Two Update



    As we're now in the second week of a new round of data deals from Canada's Big Three carriers, I thought I'd take the opportunity to post some new developments from the last four days. All sources here are from iPhone in Canada, but you can find the same information on Mobile Syrup if you prefer.

    First, Virgin Mobile apparently has a new retention plan offering 10GB for $56/month. Your mileage may vary—that is, you'll have to wait on hold to get through to Virgin's loyalty department just to see if they'll even offer it to you.

    Next, Koodo is offering some customers 15GB for $75/month on a Tab Medium plan (a separate device subsidy). This offer is by invitation only; login to your Koodo account to see if you're eligible.

    And finally, as of this morning Telus is now matching Rogers and Bell with their own identical $75 "unlimited" plan (throttled after 10GB). That's great news, but... in adding this plan they seem to have removed their previous deal, the one with an extra 5GB/month for two years. I discovered this at my local Telus store when I tried to activate two lines for my girlfriend and I on the 15GB promo plan.

    So now I'm left wondering whether I should wait for Telus to reintroduce 15GB for $75 and make it permanent, or activate with Bell before they follow Telus and take their 15GB/month option off the table.

    Yep, AT&T and Verizon were praying so hard they both completely forgot to object to the merger during the comment period. Verizon and AT&T don't care because they already know how this movie ends:...
