Freedom Mobile Promo: $50/10GB Plan with Canada/USA Calling Dec. 16-19 Only

Share:

Just when Rogers, Telus and Bell, along with their flanker brands Fido, Koodo and Virgin appeared to have figured things out with a simultaneous $60/10GB plan for Alberta, BC and Ontario, Freedom Mobile has again ‘flipped the script’ with their own promo this weekend.

Freedom Mobile has slashed their Everywhere Canada 50 plan by $10, taking it down to $50 per month with 10GB of LTE data. The plan includes unlimited talk to Canada and the USA, unlimited global SMS/MMS and includes 500MB full-speed data for the Freedom Away Network in Canada, plus 2400 minutes to Canada/USA and unlimited text.

This “special offer” is only available December 16-19 for new and existing customers in service areas of BC, Alberta and Ontario.

Also, it’s worth noting the fine print, which says “If the majority of your monthly usage of each, or all of, data, talk and text (over 50% within consecutive 90 day periods) occurs on our partner networks in Canada or the U.S., Freedom Mobile reserves the right to terminate your use of the plan and migrate you to a similar plan for use on the Freedom Mobile network, where use on our partner networks in Canada or the U.S. will incur applicable pay-per-use charges.”

Freedom Mobile now sells the iPhone and with their aggressive pricing to lure in new customers, it’s definitely caught the attention of the Big 3, as they try to keep up and retain customers.

Now I wonder what Rogers, Telus and Bell will do to keep pace with Freedom…

    It’s worth a try to see if Bell will match Freedom

  • Aceclutch

    Yes please keep going down. I’m looking for a $40 4gb. 10gb is too much

  • Widohmaker

    Finally we are starting to get some real competition in Ontario.

  • NOHoldsBar

    Let us know if that works for you. The wait times with Bell and Koodo are huge now.

  • NOHoldsBar

    This competition is awesome. Let’s see how low everyone can go.

    It’s too bad Freedom still hasn’t upgraded their towers to make them compatible with non aws-66 band.

  • NOHoldsBar

    You want a $40 6GB plan

  • Aceclutch

    That would be nice too. I normally use around 2gb of data on regular 3gb max but 4g extra breathing room will be nice.

  • NOHoldsBar

    Freedom is getting smart. They’re preventing what’s been going on with Koodo where people have gotten around the loopholes of acquiring out of province plans. With the latest promos, many outside Quebec and Manitoba are getting onto a “legit” plan even if it means staying with Koodo.

  • NOHoldsBar

    I use less than 5 but I had one of those Koodo plans I mentioned which made me uneasy.

    From a per gigabyte standpoint, the 10 GB plan is the best. This FM plan is great but coverage and network speeds are not.

    As a result, I don’t think there is any rush to get onto FM. They’ll be offering similar plans in the future, especially after people start leaving them because of poor coverage or speed. Let’s hope the other carriers continue to be competitive and go a step further like Freedom just did.

  • Tim

    I saw on RFD, someone posted that Freedom has 10GB for $32.50, they’re giving the f&f discount to everyone.

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    Freedom went all out lol they now offer the general public with the F&F code of the 35% off on all big gig plans!!! This is tempting….keeping my old everywhere Promo 50 or get the new big gig everywhere Canada and lose the 1GB US roaming…

  • Nyk0n

    I got the friends and family plan. $39 for unlimited Canada wide talk and global text. 10GB data

    iPhone X (256GB) plus $40/month

    Together I am paying significantly less with Freedom over Rogers. And get more data too

  • Nyk0n

    I still have one code left that expires Dec 31st if anyone wants a lifetime 35% discount on freedom just tag or direct message me on Instagram:

  • RogueR

    Speeds are same as the big 3 on LTE, I have zero difference in speed. Usually around 25mbps down and 5 up. Coverage in the city is just fine.

    A lot of people still think Freedom is slow with no coverage and most of those people have never used it

  • RogueR
  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    The speed is not bad actually and did a test near my work at queen and Bathurst. (iPhone 6 here)

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto
  • Nyk0n

    Sorry code is taken now thank everyone I’ll try to post when I get more if I can

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    It got better as times goes by too, this was tested a week before that test I did in the same area. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5ea3d365dde0eb5bd6445367d472a1a8f74544d6a137fe5a9a5aec2f0c593f9c.jpg

  • Nyk0n

    The big three are still faster I was getting closer to 100/30 on Rogers a few weeks ago on an iPhone 6S plus

    Max I have seen on my Freedom based iPhone X is 40/15

  • Nyk0n

    $32.50 is the $50 plan with the f&f discount

  • Nyk0n

    They are super busy installing 2500MHz right now and will be done existing footprint by March after that the coveted building penetrating 700mhz is going in

    Any LTE based phone in the last few years will get LTE now.

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    They’ve been doing lots of background upgrading starting from the West coast and moving in to the East, though some areas they’ve started working on as GTA, and stretching to KW/Hamilton is not a small area and a dense population doesn’t help it. I felt like people that don’t use Freedom would never know and that’s a fact. The hates all comes from the people when they’re with Wind and not with Freedom.

  • RogueR

    Never ever did I see speeds like that on Telus or Rogers on IPhone 6.

    25/5 is plenty fast as most people don’t stream 4K video on their phones.

    A majority of users are texting, emailing and using social media, you don’t need anything faster so why pay upwards of twice what Freedom offers?

  • Nyk0n
  • Nyk0n

    And why would anyone ever want to stream 4K on their phonesis beyond me. it’s virtually impossible to see the detail on screens less than 50” 1080p is plenty of detail for phones of 6” or less

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    Eh max is 40/15 on the iPhone X? Somethings not right there..take a look at these yourself and compare it. These are not mine but someone posted in HoFo for speed test on the iPhone X https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2758ecd25f71bbdd47473058d158ca48e137ac5be1334454f49ffdbf07b0a20e.jpg

  • warpdrive

    Lol. Called Telus loyalty just now…. want to make sure the 10gb doesn’t expire after 2 years. They are doing a “system upgrade”, no agents to talk to until Tuesday. That’s pretty convenient seeing as how the promo ends on Monday…..

  • Nathan Hughes

    I just made the switch to Freedom from Virgin with the pre-order iphone last week. The network is surprisingly good, but not quite where the other carriers are. I am going to stay with Freedom and hope most others do as well, and that more customers are added. The big 3 are smart; if they can keep Freedom small than long term they will jack up their prices again. Hopefully Freedom (Shaw) can whether the storm so to speak and continually invest in better coverage and service.

  • RogueR

    Wow that’s pretty good! Where bouts in Calgary? I’m in Bowness.

    I mean I guess if people need those speeds then that’s good. People like me definitely don’t and 25mbps is definitely fast enough.

    Super glad Freedom is pushing the big 3 on prices. Definitely not going back to the big 3 though anytime soon. Hard to leave $49.73 all fees and taxes in with 12gb of data and unlimited talk/text.

  • Nathan Hughes

    @Nyk0n:disqus I just signed up to freedom with the same phone and plan. Obviously you are doing the $40 tab boost as well? If you do come across another code I would greatly appreciate grabbing one. Thanks for posting.

  • Nyk0n

    Could just be the tower I have tested i
    On (McKenzie Towne)

    Not all the towers are are fully upgraded in the city yet

  • Mobile Guru

    Nope. Didn’t work.

  • Travis Turner

    I have one you can have.

  • Nathan Hughes

    that would be awesome @disqus_uWpk8SlCJL:disqus. my email is nkhughes84@gmail.com if sending it there works? Let me know, thanks a lot.

  • It’s not about that.
    The faster your phone can complete a task, the less battery it will use.
    The faster the network, the more battery life.

  • RogueR

    Well personally being with Telus for a long time, I’ve never seen those speeds not even close. Always been in Lethbridge or Calgary. Still just have an iPhone 6. Is Rogers that much faster than Telus? Is the location making the difference? The phone? And does everyone get those speeds everywhere?

  • RogueR

    I guess imo it’s not worth paying upwards of twice as much so I can email faster or see a webpage faster when it’s already pretty instantaneous and Wi-Fi is everywhere anyway. Battery life isn’t an issue

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    It turns out this is not a 10GB permanent plan but 24 months 6+4

  • We’re not talking about twice as much.
    With the promotional plans, the difference is $10.
    $10 is worth it for a nationwide (and local LOL) coverage and a reliable network. And also to have the latest tech.

  • RogueR

    Yes we are. It’s what? A 2 day window for a promo that only happened because Freedom has such low prices. And then back to the inflated monopoly prices. Not to mention good luck even getting through to speak to reps of the big 3 from multiple accounts of customers. Personally, saving a bunch of money a month for no huge difference in service and to support a smaller player in an industry that is screwing over its Canadian customers is very much worth it.

  • Because Freedom has low prices?
    Please. Promotions like this happen all the time around the holidays.
    The big three do not care. They have never lowered anyone’s plan because they threatened to go with Freedom, and will never because Freedom is just not at their level, yet, as opposed to Vidéotron.

  • RogueR

    Wake up bud, these current offers by the big 3 are directly related to Freedom. Competition drives prices lower. And if promotions like these current and very time limited response offers from the big 3 were more common place then a majority of people wouldn’t have to pay double every month just to pay the big 3’s pockets.

  • Collin

    If someone has an extra code i’d appreciate it

  • Gene

    Hi there, I have been with Telus in Calgary and this seems the perfect opportunity to switch. If anyone has a promo code or 2 I would totally appreciate it! Thanks. Gene gwf.canuck@gmail.com

  • Nathan Hughes

    lol well your shameless plug worked, great website @Nyk0n:disqus

  • Nyk0n

    Sent your code @Nathan Hughes

  • Faisal Ijaz

    Anyone have an extra code? I would highly appreciate it.

    Thanks

  • Nyk0n

    All out of codes everyone sorry can’t help any further.

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    Ask a staffer at a Freedom Store is your only way to get one. 5 per employee to give out and can try to find one in craigsl BUT I strongly don’t agree on selling/buying a code. Is even illegal for FM employee to sell one as per their guidelines.

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    If you travel to the US often, call 611 ask to speak with a supervisor if you can switch to the $50/8GB plan with 1GB US/Canada roaming. Although no extra savings but the deal is much better then the $50/10GB imo.
    Depends if you want the 2GB extra in home network or an extra 500GB in away network and the ability to roam in the US.

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    The big 3 probably see and know something we don’t as a consumer. They’ve been robbing us with ridiculous plan and limited data. They don’t lower price for no reason and it will be a game changer once there’s VoWifi and VoLTE enable on iOS on Freedom.

    Let them do their network upgrade and once 700 MHz deploy then it’ll change again. They just need the support and stop eating up whatever the big3 throws at you and lure you back in. They might not have what the big 3 have but it’ll be very similar plus the big 3 been in the business for some 20 years.

  • VoWifi and VoLTE won’t change anything.
    I don’t want a carrier who relies on VoWifi to fix the coverage issues.
    What if in your building there is only VoWifi because of poor coverage, but then there is a power outage? That’s right, no Wi-Fi, no cellphone.

    Honestly, unless Shaw makes massive investments like Videotron did, I can’t ever switch to Freedom.
    Just go on canadianoutages[dot]com/status/wind and compare with Rogers, Bell or Telus.

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    I can’t change your opinion on Freedom but don’t let me or anyone here said I told you so. Shaw will do what it takes to build the customer base and expands it. Look Big 3 been in this industry for a while, they also had their hiccups when they first started, it’s call evolving and look at their them now. Also please keep it to yourself if you ever join FM when tides change.

  • DONALDainamaito TRUMPetto

    That I agree.. they are nowhere at big 3 level yet but I’m hopeful and that day is when you and everyone’s else in Canada celebrate. No more oligopoly anymore and affordable plans for everyone.

  • BigCat

    Thanks a great tip! Thanks!

  • RogueR

    Hey look, if you want to pay more to have the top speeds and coverage that’s great. Some people would rather save money and still get a service that is more than adequate and at the same time support smaller players in the industry.

    I’m not sure why so many people want to find faults with a company making the industry better from a customer standpoint. And most of these people have never even used it, just heard from a “friend”

  • Please, when FM has a decent coverage, I will switch, but for now I won’t. What is this “Also please keep it to yourself if you ever join FM when tides change.” lmao I won’t use a network that is not yet up to my standards just because “one day they’ll be great”.

  • AlexanPN

    Please be careful with Freedom Mobile porting your number when moving over from different carrier. I have signed a 2 year plan on Dec 18 and it’s Dec 21 today, 96 hours later and still not having my original business number porting yet. This is quite far from the max couple hours porting was told originally. Help line always busied. Trying to contact Freedom to see if I can get out of the contract and go to different carrier so I can get business number back.

  • MTee

    Does anyone know if this plan comes with voicemail and call display?

  • Diane Roberts

    I waited a long time on phone to get the same deal with Virgin. Was told it would go into effect in January. I was told everything would be the same but that I would get the 10 Gb for $50. My Jan invoice shows that Virgin is charging $60 not $50. Told that the person who made the plan change for me gave me incorrect information. So much for competition. Trudeau needs to stop traveling and get our internet and cell charges down to what everyone else in the world is paying. Tired of Canada having highest rates in cell/internet fees.
