For what Fido gives me for $65/month in Canada, I will pay ~$95 US. Keeping Fido+Roaming used to be cheaper (USD 90!) but now after they jacked it up its USD 120.
    If you think paying $65+Fido Roam every month is cheaper and gives you more bang for your buck....no idea how you do math

    $80+Tax AT&T Enahanced 4G LTE Unlimited Data plan includes Canada-Mexico Roaming as well. 15GB Hotspot and more! not to mention free HBO.....


    Yes I know AT&T says after 22GB your data may be throttled, but thats IF your in a congested area.

    Verizon is $85 for the same plan.

    How's that for fair competition in the marketplace?

    You're all paranoid, there is no collusion.
    Un-Rogered, and getting better 'value'.

    It was only a matter of time. They stagger increases to make it look like it's not an across the board increase. Monkey see, monkey do.

    Cool!
    Hopefully the others will likewise see sense.. or fall into (oligarchic) line.

    All but Tab Large max out at $85/8GB
    Large has 12GB for $129

    Post Even with Price-Fixing, Not All Canadian Carrier Plans are Equal

    ... Either that, or the Koodo rep I spoke to made a big mistake.

    I guess everyone reading this is sitting pretty on their 10GBs from last December's holiday miracle; nobody on Howard Forums seems to be talking about a spring promotion being offered by Canada's Big Three flanker brands. I first heard about it at my local Best Buy, and confirmed it with a visit to both Koodo and Virgin Mobile kiosks yesterday. It might only apply to Ontario.

    The current rate cards for BYOD plans are still identical for Fido, Koodo and Virgin Mobile, but... if you take a plan with 1GB or more of data they will add an additional 3GB to your plan. In other words:

    1GB becomes 4GB for $50/month
    3GB becomes 6GB for $60/month
    5GB becomes 8GB for $70/month
    8GB becomes 11GB for $85/month

    The 10GB plans probably get an extra 3GB as well, but nobody should have to pay over a hundred bucks for their cell phone plan. C'mon...

    For me Fido wasn't really in the running, only because the Bell/Telus network has proven to be significantly faster in downtown Toronto. So my first stop at the mall was at a Virgin Mobile kiosk. Everything was as expected, including the egregious data overage rate of $7 per 100MB that has apparently become the new standard. But there's one peculiar aspect to Virgin's Roam Sweet Roam service—for the daily roaming fee you don't actually get access to your data bucket, but instead an allowance of a mere 100MB. Despite being a big fan of local SIM cards while travelling this didn't sit well with me, so on I went to Koodo.

    I'll cut to the chase: the big difference with Koodo's promotion is that the 3GB data bonus is only good for 24 months, whereas with Virgin it will remain on your account until you change your plan. So even with the meager data bucket while roaming, Virgin Mobile is definitely the better choice. I hope this helps anyone in the market for a new plan. I haven't seen these bonus data promos advertised anywhere, even on the carriers' websites, but for Ontarians they are definitely available, so grab one while you can.

    Back to 500 minutes

    Koodo's back to 500min plans.
    Overage .60/min.

    For an additional $5 you can have unlimited.
    So, a $5 increase in plan pricing.

    To help mask the regression a Big Gig promo, RBT-style (1 GB, time-limited).

    And now a $30 connection fee for all in-store activations.
    SIM included, free of charge!

    In perfect harmony

    Fido and Virgin are likewise back to 500min plans, $5 more for unlimited.

    Same price points, same allotments, same time-limited 1GB 'bonus'.
