Yesterday Fido launched a $39 Standard Plan with 400 Canada-wide daytime minutes and 400MB of data. Later on that evening Fido also doubled the minutes and data on its $45 and $55 Smart Plans, which this morning was quickly matched by Virgin Mobile and Koodo (you knew that was going to happen right?)
Check out the changes below on Fido’s Smart Plans (note Fido’s Standard Plans also have double the minutes and data too):
Also: for those on Fido and looking to add a second line, you can get 10% off. But what is even better is if your second line is bringing its own device (example: unlocked iPhone or any unlocked phone), the BYOD 10% discount is stackable.
So that means the $39/month Standard Plan with 400 Canada-wide minutes, 5pm evenings/weekends and 400MB of data can be had for $31.60/month. It’s a great plan for kids or people in the family who don’t use a lot of data.
Here are the changes to Virgin’s Gold Plans:
…and Koodo’s Canada-wide data plans (talk and text plans also have double the minutes):
If you’re on any of these plans, call in and get your double data or minutes. Of course, these plans listed don’t apply to Quebec or other provinces that get special regional pricing.
