Fido Promo: Flex Mobile Data Plan Now $15 for 3GB


If you’re looking to get a data-only plan from Fido, the company has a promotion right now that is not listed on their website, but available through visiting a Fido store or calling in to 611 or Fido Chat support.

The mobile Internet flex data plan previously came with 1GB for $15 per month, but a promo now bumps it up to 3GB, saving you $10 per month (normally it’s $25 for 3GB). The promo pricing is permanent and not tied to a contract. If you’re using a cellular iPad, you will want to jump on this.

Data overages are charged at $10 per 1GB, and this is available for new activations, plan changes and BYOD. No voice is included, but if used, it is billed at pay-per-use rates of $1 per minute and long distance at $0.55 per minute plus airtime.

Users on RFD have been able to switch their existing plans over to this one via Chat Support and calling in. People with cellular iPads may want to jump on this plan, or those using Fongo with their iPhone for VoIP calling. Let us know if you’re going to switch or jump on this data-only plan.

    Wow, as a fongo user, I actually plan to “jump on this.” I almost never use less than 5gb (which costs me $35), but the tiers are better since anything over 1gb sends me for $10 to $35. Thanks!

  • Cheers!

    I have a OnePlus X and it accepts two SIM cards. Can I just plug in a data-only SIM card from Fido in one of the SIM slots, and would it work?

    I’m thinking of doing a 40 dollar text+talk only plan on 1 SIM card, and data only (3 GB for 15 dollars) on the other SIM card, and it would still be cheaper than the plan I’m paying now with the same amount of data (I’m paying Koodo 60 dollars now for a 3 GB plan).

  • Check RFD, I believe someone there had mentioned having a dual SIM phone and using this.

  • Thanks. What plan are you currently on?

    I got the same message. My plan is $39/month 400mb data.

    “No voice is included, but if used, it is billed at pay-per-use rates of $1 per minute ” WTF??? Is this 2003 ?

    Nice. Is SMS included or, if not, how much? I bought this plan a few days ago, but FIDO only shows 1 GB. Is there a list of fees for voice and text anywhere? (you say that long distance is 55 cents plus airtime, would airtime be the $1 dollar you mention for local calls?). Thanks!!

    They are charging 15$ for 3 gigabytes. In 2003, I think I would have have been happy to pay $100 for 1 megabyte
