From what we’re told by one source, the company’s trying to lure customers to these new plans, away from their previous free U.S. roaming premium plans that launched in May. Those plans offered free U.S. roaming for 90 days of the year, starting at $65.95 for 2GB of data, $75.95 with 3GB and $85.95 for 5GB.

These new plans today are priced competitively with more data, to make people switch to them and ditch their U.S. roaming plans, as Videotron reportedly saw higher numbers than expected of people jumping on, thusly paying more U.S. roaming fees.

If you jumped onto Videotron’s U.S. roaming plan from earlier this year—will you be making the switch to one of these new plans?

Update: These plans look to be only available in Quebec.

    are these plans available in Ontario?

    worked for me. I switched from 2GB roaming to 6GB at $66.

    Was useful during the summer vacation, but no plans to go back soon.

    They launch their plans just before the summer and are surprised people go to the US? I bet many people won’t go that often to the US during the rest of the year.

    It’s amazing that the gov hasn’t looked at this…. How can other provinces offer this and it not be available in Ontario or BC….

  • Dany Quirion

    Of course its only available in Quebec, it only serves Quebec ????

  • Dany Quirion

    Videotron is in Quebec only

  • DoctorT

    Does this mean you can roam all over Canada for free?

  • Nick

    Why is it Quebec gets all the good deals?

  • Bafoon

    if I’m in M.Dot for travel – can I signup? Or they need home address to be in QC?

  • Jay

    its videotron… trust me.. its not a good deal, you’ll barely have wireless reception

  • Jay

    Not sure I follow, you mean why is it that videotron doest serve the entire country? or why is that the price isnt similar with any other company?

  • Dany Quirion

    They have alot actually , and where theres none it uses rogers

  • Dany Quirion

    They always need an address to get the provincial rate

  • It’s Me

    @iphoneincanada Does this include device discount or is it BYOP pricing?

  • Salvador

    It’s only in Quebec but based on the fine prints, those prices are for residential clients who also jump into the mobile. I could tell you, residential service from Videotron sucks. I was with Bell and I switched to Videotron for a better price… my switch lasted 3 months. I had to go back to Bell because TV service was years behind Bell in terms of PVR Decoder, On-Deman content and Live streaming on Mobile devices.

    Outside Quebec, Videotron uses “Partners” networks for roaming in Canada, and also on the fine prints Videotron reserves the right to cancel or limit the service for clients using mostly “partners” networks for 3 consecutive periods, so this answer the question about buying the service in Quebec but living in Ontario.

    Kinda both… Just bitter we don’t have anything comparable with this in Ontario

  • Jack

    Koodo offer 6gig for 60$ only Quebec
