Looks like wireless carriers are trying hard to retain customers from jumping ship, based on recent data bonus promos being given out.
We told you yesterday how Freedom Mobile is giving some existing customers 10GB of free data if you ask for it, and now it appears a similar promo is available from Telus-owned Koodo, in the form of 5GB.
According to RFD, Koodo is giving out a free 5GB data add-on if you call in and mention Freedom Mobile has a $35 plan with 11GB data. Customer service agents will then “talk” to supervisors, then approve a 5GB data add-on to your current plan.
The popular RFD thread cites a high number of users able to get the 5GB data add-on from Koodo, as since Sunday afternoon, the discussion has already reached a whopping 51 pages.
Let us know if you’re lucky enough to get a 5GB data add-on from Koodo. A phone call or online chat may be worth your time…
Update 10:18am PDT: A Koodo spokesperson confirmed to iPhone in Canada this promotion is indeed available, but is only limited to customers in B.C., Alberta and Ontario.
