Fido Increases the Prices of Select Plans, Copying Koodo
- Fido has increased select plans by $2 per month
- The price changes have seemingly matched price increases by Koodo
- Virgin Plus will likely follow suit today or tomorrow
After Koodo increased some prices last night (we had a story scheduled first thing this morning) by $2 per month, we’re now seeing competitors do the exact same thing.
Rogers-owned Fido has increased the prices of its 15GB and 20GB bring your own device plans this morning, now up to $62 and $67 per month. Previously these were at $60 and $65 per month as of yesterday.
Also up in price is the bring your own device Talk & Text plan, now at $35 (was $33), a $2 per month increase. Again, just like Koodo.
All of these price changes from Fido have been matched by Koodo. It’s only a matter of time before Bell’s Virgin Plus follows suit as well.
One week ago prices for a 20GB plan were at $50 from Koodo, Fido and Virgin Plus, as part of a promo. During Black Friday last fall, a 20GB plan was just $30. It’s clear one should never jump on a plan except during Black Friday or other big promotional periods.
Again, the Canadian wireless tango is in full swing, nothing to see here folks.
