Last month, Rogers and Fido started texting select users to offer up 1GB or 2GB of free bonus data per month, in an attempt to retain customers from switching carriers.
As of today, it appears Fido has started sending out bonus data texts again, as many of you have alerted us of having received the standard message, which reads below:
“Hi, it’s Fido: Thanks for being with us! Here’s an extra 1GB of data per month just for you at no extra cost for 604-xxx-xxxx. It’ll start on 12-Jun-15, so enjoy it as long as you have your current plan or until you upgrade your phone, for up to 12 months. Reach us at http://bit.ly/fidoreachus”
The bonus data is good for up to 12 months and stays as long as customers are on their current plan or until they upgrade. It’s quite the incentive to have customers remain with the company considering today is being dubbed “Cellphone Freedom Day” thanks to the Wireless Code of Conduct, ending three year contracts and offering wireless users more protections.
Those receiving the texts range from BYOD customers to those on contract still, customers that have been with the company for as little as 1-2 years.
Did your receive a text from Fido (or Rogers) today gifting you 1GB of bonus data per month?
Thanks Josephine, Krishna!
