Fido has launched a $60 Max Plan (3 year agreement required) with 3GB of data for Quebec residents only. Here’s what’s included in this Canada-wide long distance calling plan:

  • Unlimited SMS/MMS

  • Unlimited incoming calls
  • 3GB data
  • Call display, Voicemail
  • Unlimited Circle Calling

This plan is likely a response to Videotron’s unlimited Canada/USA voice promo with 6GB of data, which is no longer available.

Also, residents in Manitoba and Saskatchewan have their own special offers, such as the following unlimited Canada-wide Smart Plans (2 year agreements) for $45 with 1GB of data ($5 cheaper than other provinces) and $60 with 5GB of data (2GB data in other provinces):

If you want to avoid contracts, you’re best bet is to buy your own unlocked iPhone to use with one of these plans. Let us know if you’re going to jump on this!

    For the Québec plan, I signed up, you just have to add the $4 value pack if you want visual voice mail, Caller ID etc…

    I had the $67 plan before that had 2 gigs of data, so for $3 less I have an extra gig.

    These Per Province plans annoy me. It’s more or less the big companies admitting they’re shafting most Canadians, while still trying to compete with regional carriers. It’s maddening.

    This FIDO plan is the same as the one from Telus I just got here in Quebec. For $5 more I felt it was worth it to triple my data, not to mention the unlimited talk and text.

  • grantalias

    I agree with you. It should be nation wide.

  • crosseyed_mofo

    similar to the rogers plans made only available to quebec last month

    These bull$hit per province plans annoy me. There is more people in Ontario and the networks cost just the same to build. But why do we pay more then??? I’ll tell you why…. Because there is no phuken competition.

    BRING ON VERIZON!!!!!!! I’m sick of paying $90 cell phone plans that these people in Timbuktu pay $60 for….

    So our (BC) once fairly decent 2 gb $56 Fido plans now suck compared to Quebec and Manitoba/Saskatchewan. I wonder how long we’ll have to wait for a comparable plan and I agree this should be nation wide, but these companies only care about the bottom line and I agree that it exists only to compete with regional carriers. We’ll have to threaten them we’ll leave before something will happen. However, there will have to be a better competition before they will do anything for us.

    no kidding, my contract is up in Feb, I have 6 gigs on top of a calling plat and I am paying 65, bucks. What I am worried about is all the plans here are crap for data, and I use on average 1.5 gig. They need to have this in ontario if they want to keep my business. And since I am unlocked I might not go contract.

    Just wondering if you signed up in Quebec with this plan, but then moved to Ontario would you still get to keep the plan and just change your number?

  • I believe you get to keep the plan. Previous province-only deals had people sign up with local addresses then “move”.

  • Joe

    I’m in Quebec and already jumped on the plan. Had 6GB before and only 200 outgoing minutes, both of which I never used up. With this plan at least I know all is unlimited.

    Only thing is, visual voicemail is probably not included. So it will be another $4.

  • Jason

    My thoughts exactly. If these types of work a rounds exist why not have them available to everyone or at least on retention/loyality?

  • That’s a good question.

  • Guest

    I feel the same but at the same time I wouldn’t put too much hope on Verizon. Just another evil corporation that’ll work with the other big guys to rip us off.

  • It cost the same to build, but not to maintain.

  • wah_gee

    I don’t understand the pricing structures. Seems as though we from BC and Ontario pay the most.

  • kkritsilas

    I need to understand the logic behinid some of these announcements. From the Fido announcements:


    Unlimited Evenings/Weekends

    Unlimited anytime minutes

    Unlimited incoming calls


    Unlimited Circle Calling

    Does it really need to be repeated 4 times. Doesn’t nnlimited anytime minutes cover unlimited evenings and weekends, unlimited incoming calls, and unlimited Circle calling? I think that unlimited anytime minutes should cover it all. This may be a sales technique, to differentiate plans, I realize.

    Also, considering the lower population density in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, the pricing has to be related to something other than network cost, as the density in the East or in BC should make the network costs, on a per user basis, much lower.


  • LOL. It sure does look good though 🙂
