Videotron has launched a competitive voice and data plan for residents in Quebec. Here’s what’s included in their new Unlimited Voice and Data 55 promo:
- Unlimited anytime local calling
- Unlimited long-distance calls to Canada and the US
- Unlimited text messaging (text, photo and video)
- Call Display
- Voicemail (up to 35 voicemails)
- Call Waiting and Conference Calls
- 3 GB data add-on
- Promotion: 5-hour illico mobile plan free for 12 months
All plans of course include free and unlimited local and long distance calls within Quebec between Videotron residential and mobile customers. For calls while traveling in North America, it’s only $0.30/minute.
Just yesterday we relayed a report that said Quebec could be seen as a model for wireless competition. It is highly unlikely we will see a similar plan offered by our incumbents outside of Quebec for a plan like this. You can count on the ‘Big 3’ to eventually match this plan, like they have with 6GB data Videotron promos in the past. Unlimited calls to the USA plus 3GB of data makes for a decent plan.
Videotron, which runs on an AWS HSPA+ network, announced the T-Mobile iPhone 5 will be compatible on their network last month. If you’re okay with 3G network speeds, this plan just might be for you and your unlocked T-Mobile iPhone 5.
