Prospective mobile phone customers considering Fido for service may be interested to know that the company has reduced their entry level CityFido plan by $5.00. This brings the plan to $40 (was $45) and retains the same features as before.

CityFido $40 (was $45)

  • Text Messages: Unlimited incoming and outgoing text messages
  • Features: Call waiting and Conference call included, Per-second billing, No System Access Fees
  • Available Zones: Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, London, Toronto, Ottawa/Gatineau, Montreal, Quebec

To qualify for the plan, new customers must sign a 2 or 3-year Fido agreement.

Existing customers who activated on the original $45 2000 minute CityFido plan on or after November 3, 2009 will have the new $5.00 price decrease change automatically on their next bill cycle.

Customers who activated on the original $45 2000 minute CityFido plan before November 3, 2009 or that did not have their $45 2000 minute CityFido plan decrease by $5.00 by their next bill cycle, should contact Fido.

    I think that FIDO is trying to compete with WIND.

    I also think we are seeing some competition between carriers or FIDO is in the Christmas spirit! lol

    If fido were to bring back the old city fido plan
    for 45-50 I would go with them in a heartbeat
    rather than wind cus tere more reliable network
    even though it is Rogers but less chance of
    dropped calls and has better coverage

    Fido raised their price for the base City Fido Plan a couple of months ago; likely when they thought that Wind was a nonstarter. This is just one example of how competition is improving the lot of consumers in Canada. It will be more interesting to see what Rogers, Fido, et al do in response to the unlimited data plans introduced by Wind. I suspect they won't respond in kind until Wind is more widespread across Canada and has a more reliable network. Nevertheless, I do expect to see unlimited data plans offered by all 4 major carriers (5 if we count “Dave”) by then end of 2011. Here's hoping anyway.
