We previously saw how Koodo launched a $75/10GB Canada-wide calling plan, which was matched by Fido and Virgin Mobile. Now, we’re seeing some new promos to reduce this plan even further for BYOD customers.
Fido and Koodo stores in Ontario are advertising a $65/10GB plan with unlimited Canada-wide minutes. This plan is basically the $75/10GB plan with $120 credits over 12 months ($10/month), reducing it to $65/10GB. After 12 months, your plan resumes the rate of $75 per month for 10GB.
For customers walking by the mall and seeing a $65/10GB plan advertised, that will draw in some crowds as it is reminiscent of last year’s wildly popular $60/10GB holiday promo.
We spoke with Koodo and Fido locations in Ontario to confirm the promotion, but stores in BC did not offer this as of writing.
Users on RFD are also seeing this plan being advertised as well, with Fido locations noting the plan includes 1000 international long distance minutes as well and “5 hours unlimited data”.
Other plans being offered from Fido after the credits for 12 months include:
Again, this offer is not available online it seems and is targeting customers and foot traffic in-store during this busy Black Friday shopping weekend.
