Freedom Mobile, formerly known as WIND Mobile, recently launched their LTE network in Toronto and Vancouver—but so far the AWS Band 3 LTE network only works with a couple smartphones (the iPhone is not one of them).
In an effort to lure back former customers, Freedom Mobile has been sending out personalized offers via email. The latest teases the company’s $45 per month Canada-US calling plan with 6GB data—with $10 off—for $35 per month for 10 months. The plan also includes unlimited global SMS/MMS, and is only good until March 20.
According to the email, it reads:
“Although you may remember us as WIND, we’ve changed our name to Freedom Mobile and renewed our commitment to making wireless service more affordable for everyone.
We’re excited to tell you that we’ve launched our new traffic-free LTE network in your city, meaning you’ll enjoy an enhanced experience and faster downloads.
If you come back and give us a try, we think you’ll notice a remarkable difference in our network, plus you can enjoy $100 in bill credits, 3 GB of bonus data and a $0 LTE phone.”
To get the $100 service credit, Freedom Mobile requires users to activate a new Pay Before or Pay After line on an eligible plan, such as the Smartphone 45 LTE, Everywhere 45, or Everywhere 55 plan. Once that’s done, a $10 per month credit will be applied for ten months.
iPhone in Canada reader Rusty tells us he switched over to one of the Big 3 carriers back in May of 2016. Freedom Mobile held onto his email address and sent him an offer out of the blue.
Anyone else getting email offers from Freedom Mobile?
