Fido Promo Again Doubles the Data on All Smart Plans [Update]

Last month Fido introduced a short promotion where its Smart Plans received double the data and minutes. Recently their $40 plan became $39 along with 450 daytime minutes and 400MB of data.

Just this afternoon, Fido has re-introduced their double the data and minutes promotion yet again. Also, for those signing up on two year terms, you will get the first month free:

If you missed out when the $60 plan was available for $56, this double the data promo is a good time to get back on board, if you use under 2GB of data per month. Even if you incur overages, it’s only $5/500MB. Pay for data only when you need it, right?

I have a feeling Koodo and Virgin will soon match this Fido promo–stay tuned!

Update April 20: Looks like Virgin Mobile has matched this promo:

    You need to report on videotrons new 55$ plan, it’s amazing and beats fidos plan hands down!

  • G

    Jon you need to actually read the other stories on this site. You would have noticed that the videotron deal was already posted before this deal was posted

    I came back from vacation in Hong Kong 2 weeks ago, and I’m so sad to see and pay for our garbage phone and internet plans here in Canada… so sad…

    Yes Gary, I know I said the same thing on the other article.

    As well as the fact that Fido plan is available to everyone in Canada vs QC’s only Videotron plan with other fees if you use the plan outside of QC

    I left Fido and headed over to Koodo. $45 plan for the same features but only 450 daytime minutes; more than enough for most people. I also get an extra 10% off my bill for bringing my own phone.

  • After using PAYG outside of Canada, coming back is painful.

  • Jon

    I did read the other articles thanks. Must have missed it, it happens. No need to be snarky.

  • Do you know if this is available for users with subsidized iPhones? It looks like it might only work with two-year agreements, which would mean I couldn’t switch my plan over to it because I’m on a 3-year subsidized plan. It’s unclear though, so I thought I’d ask to see if anyone has had luck with switching their plans over before I call.
