For those with family members on WIND Mobile, the company has announced today new unlimited rate plans ranging from $20-40. Mirko Rugarli, WIND’s Chief Marketing Officer says these new plans have more features and “give Canadians the value, simplicity and savings they want.”
Below are the new plans:
WIND 20: Unlimited Talk + Text for $20, with $100 WINDtab subsidy.
WIND 30: Unlimited Data, Talk + Text for $30, with $200 WINDtab subsidy.
WIND 40: International, Unlimited Data, Talk + Text, with $300 WINDtab subsidy.
All plans include caller ID, conference calling, call forwarding, call waiting, with voicemail $8/month extra. Previously, WIND had a $25 (unlimited talk, text and 100MB data) and $40 (unlimited talk, text, data) plan as starting points for customers, but now these new plans offer more options.
WIND Mobile goes on to explain based on a former CRTC report, the average monthly cell phone bill in Canada is $58. Rugarli says the $30/month plan offers unlimited features that are “almost half than the national average” of what other wireless customers pay.
Last month, WIND Mobile became the first foreign-owned wireless carrier in Canada. Recent rumours and speculation have suggested the takeover could result in its sale to an existing wireless incumbent.
