Fido has a promo targeting Freedom Mobile customers, seeking to switch the latter over to the Rogers network.
According to documents seen by iPhone in Canada, Fido is offering $15 off per month on the company’s $35 unlimited talk and text plan, taking it down to $20 per month, savings of 43% off. This “competitive response” is available for new customers porting in from Shaw Mobile or Freedom Mobile.
Fido says the talk and text plan is available for bring your own device (BYOD) and financing. The discount on the talk and text plan will remain until customers change plans.
Currently, in B.C. and Alberta, Shaw Mobile offers up to six free talk and text lines for Shaw Internet customers. It’ll be tough for Fido to compete with this but this discount looks to target those unaware of the free Shaw Mobile offering for internet customers.
