Fido customers in Quebec may want to login to their online accounts and check to see if there are any offers available, because some are seeing a $51/10GB BYOD plan.
This plan includes unlimited Canada-wide minutes and global texting, to go with the usual extras like call display, voicemail, etc. Data overages are billed at $7/100MB, or $70/1GB.
With regional carrier Videotron in Quebec, the extra competition forces the Big 3 to offer lower pricing versus other parts of Canada, such as B.C., Alberta or Ontario.
Last month, Fido offered a $50/10GB BYOD plan to some customers, seen as a response to Virgin Mobile’s $56/10GB BYOD plan offering. This Quebec plan from Fido looks to counter the Virgin plan by offering a $5 per month discount.
Rogers, Telus and Bell currently all offer ‘no overage’ data plans marketed as unlimited, starting at $75 per month for 10GB. After initial data amounts are used, speeds are throttled.
Again, this $51/10GB offer doesn’t appear to be available for everyone, but if you’re a Fido customer in Quebec, it’s worth logging into your account and seeing if it’s available.
