After chatr, Lucky Mobile, Public Mobile, Virgin and Koodo rolled out their expected “lower cost” data-only plans, Rogers flanker brand Fido has released theirs as well.

The LTE data-only plans from Fido are exactly as the company proposed to the CRTC—check them out below:

  • $15 for 250 MB
  • $25 for 500 MB
  • $30 for 1 GB

These plans do not include voice calling and have unlimited Canada-wide SMS/MMS. Data overages are billed at $10/100MB.

The CRTC mandated Canada’s ‘Big 3’ incumbent wireless players last year to introduce lower-cost data-only plans, which were to be made available consumers by April 2019.

Critics have denounced these data offerings as a “joke”, citing their expensive pricing.
