Quebec’s Videotron has now started to offer new faster internet plans for the same price as before, as customers now have a 400 Mbps download speed plan available, at the same price as the previous 120 Mbps and 200 Mbps plans, which have since been removed.
The 400 Mbps plan comes with 50 Mbps upload speeds and unlimited bandwidth, while the previous 120 Mbps and 200 Mbps plans were at 20 Mbps and 30 Mbps upload speeds respectively. It is priced at $64.95 per month, with Videotron saying you get “Total savings of $240 for 12 months”.
According to RFD, the new faster internet plan is available for new customers, but some existing customers were able to get it by calling in. Those with legacy modems may require a free upgrade to attain the faster speeds.
Videotron’s new flanker brand Fizz, currently offers 120 Mbps home internet for $40 per month, which includes a modem as well.
Let us know if you’re going to switch over to this faster Hybrid Fibre 400 Mbps plan with Videotron. The free speed bump reminds us of a recent move by Shaw, offering faster internet at no extra charge (which looked to be a move to compete with rival Telus).
