Fido Launches New Plans, Data Overages Now $5/100MB

As expected, Fido has unleashed new plans for customers. Below are the company’s new Pulse plans, which now only include 6 months of free Spotify (it was two years before on contract) and more expensive data overages at $5/100MB (or $50/1GB). Data options range from 1GB, 2GB, 3GB, 5GB and 7GB.

These plans include the following:

Canada-wide minutes
Unlimited evenings & weekends from 5 pm
Unlimited international text, picture and video messaging
Call Display
Circle CallingTM (unlimited calls between subscribers on the same account)
Additional data is $5/100MB or get a Data Top-Up

As you can see, BYOD starts at $55 for 1GB of data, while those wanting a contract can add either $10/$15/$35 to get $300/$500/$700 in subsidies (non-MB/SK/QC below):

Just over a year ago, Fido launched new Pulse plans and today we see them change, yet again. With pricier data overages here, it’s more important than ever to check your data usage on these plans. Thoughts on these plans?
