Virgin, Koodo, Public Mobile Roll Out Lower-Cost Data-Only Plans

More lower-cost data-only plans are rolling out from flanker and prepaid brands of wireless incumbents Rogers, Telus and Bell.

The Big 3 were mandated by the CRTC last year to offer lower-cost data-only plans for Canadian consumers. Now we’re finally seeing them made available for purchase, with plans exactly as the carriers previously proposed (the plans have been blasted as a “joke” by industry critics).

Virgin, Koodo and Public Mobile have posted their data-only monthly plans online, so let’s take a look at them below…

Virgin Mobile (Bell)

  • $28/1GB LTE data (available for prepaid/postpaid)
