Fido Matches Freedom’s $50 Canada/US Plan with 40GB
Earlier today we told you about Fido’s new $50/40GB promo plan after a $10/month credit.
Now, we’ve learned this promo plan is even better in Quebec, as it matches the Freedom Mobile $50/40GB plan with Canada/US roaming. Why just Quebec? Well, Quebec has a fourth regional wireless competitor in the form of Videotron (the owner of Freedom Mobile) so there are usually better deals compared to the rest of Canada.
According to Fido’s website, when you switch to Quebec, the $50/40GB plan says it includes “unlimited US-Canada calling + roaming”, only until May 31, 2023.
The $50 price is after Auto Pay and you get a free SIM card and the $50 “Setup Service Fee” is waived for online activations.
As of writing, Koodo and Virgin Plus have not matched the Freedom Mobile Canada-US roaming plan, for their Quebec customers. It’s unclear if this $50/40GB Canada/US plan from Fido will expand outside of Quebec.
Rogers’ CEO previously said their company would match price drops from Freedom Mobile. We’re seeing this now but it’s only in Quebec. The $50/40GB Freedom Mobile plan with Canada/US roaming is proving to be very popular according to anecdotal comments online. Fido, Koodo and Virgin Plus will need to match it across Canada if they don’t want to lose subscribers it seems.
