Fido Extends Promo $45 BYOD Smart Plan with 1GB Data Indefinitely


At the beginning of this month Fido released a $45 BYOD Smart Plan with 1GB data, matching the initial offer launched by Koodo, which was also similarly matched by Virgin Mobile.

Fido had this ‘promo’ plan expiring on May 4 initially, but that was later extended to May 12. Now, an update to Fido’s website has removed an expiry date altogether, suggesting this plan may stick around for a bit longer, like how Koodo and Virgin also have it listed as available for a “limited time”.

The Fido plan includes unlimited Canada-wide minutes, unlimited SMS/MMS and Call Display—voicemail is not included, unlike Koodo and Virgin.

So if you’ve been meaning to jump on this plan and thought it had expired, it’s still available.

    Koodo’s $45 plan is still a better deal as you mentioned and why I dropped Fido last month.

    Virgin is much better with VM, intl text and much better coverage throughout Canada

    I’ll stay with my Fido 2GB + Visual Voicemail for $56 until something better comes along. Which is unlikely.

    Gary, what about those of waiting for June 3rd to arrive to get off the hook of our 3 yr contract; any chance that these promotions will still be on by then?

  • I am assuming they will still be around as it’s coming next week. Pretty good chances.
