Freedom Mobile’s $40/6GB, $50/8GB Promo Plans Return, Yet Again


Freedom Mobile just can’t enough of its ongoing weekend sale, featuring $40/6GB and $50/8GB plans, as starting Friday, September 1, to Monday, September 4th, same deal that’s been offered for the past two weekends in a row—has returned.

According to documents obtained by iPhone in Canada, the promo plan for the $40/6GB and $50/8GB (and with 1GB Away Network, 2400 minutes to Canada/USA), is back again, dubbed the “Big Gig Event”.

Both plans include unlimited Canada-wide calling and unlimited global text, with the $50 plan offering more value for snowbirds.

Do note Freedom’s AWS-3 Band 66 LTE network is not supported by the iPhone (yet), but that could change when new models are announced by Apple on September 12th.

Also, those interested in signing a contract for a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ will get a free charging bundle (wireless pad; fast charging adapter; fast car charger), while Sony XPERIA XA1 buyers will get free Sony speakers. But I would hold off on buying anything until after September 12th.

Shaw’s Freedom Mobile recently completed their LTE rollout in all their markets in Ontario. Again, it’s best to check the coverage in your area before you jump on these plans, which definitely put pressure on the Big 3.

    The one things good about this plan is you’ll get a much betters battery life using 3G vs LTE.

    Do you think this is a better deal than the Public Mobile deal. The one for 4gb/ mth on 3 month billing cycle unltd province wide calling for 38$ a month with auto Pay?

    sorta / kinda funny, but when i see 3G – these days, it feels equivalent to NO internet…. i know i’m spoiled.. first world problems 😉

    I think the PM deal (if you are on the promo plan) is better. Auto pay discount (-$2/m), yearly loyalty (-$1/m, up to -$5/m), and refer a friend (-$1 a friend/m), there’s a lot of potential instant savings. In my experience, phone service with PM is great and I have reception. Freedom reception is still spotty, but they are improving and they do offer more data per month.
    Depends what you want, more savings vs more data. That’s how I see it.

    It will be interesting to see what happens when they start to support iPhones. Lots of people would make the switch if they supported iPhones.

    Not so fast. Public mobile is $10 month per gigabyte. While Freedom is $6.67 month per gigabyte and you can’t roam on PM unless you buy an add on plan. Most people don’t bother with referrals.

    Only if you have AWS band 6 capable phone.
