WIND Mobile Promo: $40 Unlimited Canada-Wide Plan with 5GB Data


WIND Mobile has launched a new $40 promo plan, which offers 5GB of full-speed data (3GB plus 2GB bonus), to go with its unlimited Canada-wide calling, global texting and SMS/MMS.

The plan includes the usual Voicemail+, Caller ID, Missed Call Alerts, Conference Calling, Call Forwarding and Call Waiting.

While the price of this plan is cheaper than anything you can get from the Big 3, decent network coverage remains an issue. WIND Mobile continues to upgrade its network, with a 4G LTE coming soon with the help of Nokia.

WIND looks to have moved away from its legacy offers of ‘unlimited’ data (5GB full-speed), which was available at one point for $29 and included talk and text. Prices are slowly creeping up, but overall network coverage remains the same, despite recent upgrades in Vancouver last month and ongoing work in Calgary.

Earlier this month, Shaw officially completed its acquisition of WIND Mobile.

The promo goes until March 31, 2016.

    And by “full speed”, they’re talkin 2mbps!

  • Tim

    and that’s when data actually works!

  • iverge

    I think they are slowly increasing pricing and reducing data so when they do get LTE their pricing and plans will be just under what the other big 3 offer.

  • Kent

    their data is still unlimited, just that they throttle you after your soft cap. still better than the big3.

    Hi there – I was just wondering is Wind Mobile really that bad? Most of the time I am in central Toronto, and seldom go north of highway 407. I am getting raped by Rogers…

  • Jon

    Presumably their SIM cards would work with the cell iPads, right?

  • Aleks Oniszczak

    For about the same price and speed as Wind, Mobilicity is now on the Rogers network which is a huuuuuuuge advantage. I wouldn’t consider Wind for a second if you have Mobilicity as an option. Data actually works now. I still hate Rogers, but facts are facts.

    i know someone who just got a bill of over 200 from telus. its supposed to be 70/month for their plan. i thought the new crtc rules state you cannot charge over 50/month extra for over usage of data.

  • Biggy604

    That was their old plans before the Shaw Purchase. Now they’re limiting it juat like the big 3 do just lower cost.

  • Andy

    Yup, but at $50 they stop the data cold. You need to accept charges above this to continue at the plan rates.

    Which plans actually limit it? All of their plans are still considered unlimited, like T-Mobile in the States. Its full speed for however much and then no overages because the rest is technically just a slower unlimited.
