Fido appears to be targeting former customers with a decent offer in an attempt to lure them back to the network. An iPhoneinCanada.ca reader received the following email from Fido, which read:
It’s not been the same since you left, so we’d like to welcome you back with an exclusive 5 GB plan¹ that you’re sure to love. Paired with the Fido ADVANTAGE like FidoDOLLARS™, Fido Check-In and LiveANSWERS™, this plan is designed to give you everything you want and need.
Fido wants to be by your side, so we hope you’ll take us up on this very special offer.
As you can see, the plan includes unlimited Canada-wide anytime minutes, unlimited global SMS/MMS, 5GB of data, and call display and voicemail (3 messages max).
Now for the fine print:
- Offer expires September 7, 2014
- Available on two-year terms or month-to-month
- 10% off for BYOD is NOT applicable
- Data overages billed at $10/500MB
Current Fido customers only get unlimited Canada-wide minutes and 1GB of data as seen in the $60 Standard plan (excluding Quebec, Manitoba and Saskatchewan of course).
The offer looks like a decent one considering it has 5GB of data; the next closest Fido deal I can recall is the $56/month Canada-wide plan with 2GB of data offered close to two years ago.
If you’re an ex-Fido customer, would this plan bring you back? Anyone else get this email?
