Fido has launched a promo to offer customers 1GB of free data, as it nears its 20th birthday. The company says it will give away “millions of free data” to Fido customers nationwide, plus other gifts over the next few months.
Here’s how to get your 1GB of free data, if you’re a postpaid customer:
Text GIFT to 2020; You’ll receive a confirmation noting you’ll get 500MB on your November bill cycle and 500MB on your December bill cycle.
Nancy Audette, Vice President, Fido Wireless, told iPhone in Canada in a statement “As Fido’s 20th Anniversary approaches, we wanted to show our customers our appreciation by offering them 1 GB of free data along with other freebies and contests over the next few months,” adding “We have amazing loyal customers, some of which have been with us for the full 20 years, so we really wanted to show the love as part of our birthday celebrations.”
The free 1GB data offer starts today and goes until October 24th, 2016.
Fido launched in Canada back in April, 1997, as the first carrier to debut a GSM network, while also being first to launch a pre-paid service the following year. In 2004, Rogers acquired Fido.
