    OP: I would suggest you go ahead and move to Videotron if you want that plan. The best you can expect from Fido is a retentions plan that you have to call and beg for and that will likely still be inferior to the Videotron offer. You might also expect to wait a few months before they do take any possible steps to match it, if they do so at all.

    If they offered this, I'd switch my wife's line from WIND to this in a heartbeat. $15 more per month and 3GB of data vs unlimited, but at least it'd be fast.

    Sadly, none of the plans Fido offers include US long distance (which is important to her), and the highest amount of data seems to be 1GB. She usually uses 600-700MB, but still, it's too close for comfort.

    It'll be interesting to see if it is identical in features or just the same price. Also whether the actually advertise the plan or keep it hidden for call-ins only.

    Can you let us know when it comes into effect? If I can make my $58 plan even better, I'm all for it!

    In the past, they've been plans you'd have to call in for. Not advertised, but any agent can give it.

    The Videotron sounds like a good plan (I live in Quebec)... hopefully Fido will match it.

    I"m not saying that I would get it if it comes to Fido since I don't make enough calls to warrant any voice plan now.

    That is a very good offer, videotron seems to have some good plans from what I have heard. I would try to call customer service, and speak to Retention, never say never, they could possibly set you up with a good package

    it seems like they're revamping some plans on May 7th, Let's hope they will come out with something similar or equal to videotron $55

    They just change the Fido website to allow display different plans depending on the province of the visitor.

    I'm not sure if this is good news... They will make good plans only for provinces where competitors are more aggressive.

    Perhaps one of the new regional packages will be the one to compete Videotron.
