According to an internal document released to Freedom Mobile stores this afternoon, the promotional $40 plan with 10GB of data targeting Telus, Koodo and Public Mobile customers is set to end tonight at midnight local time.
Yesterday, Public Mobile released their popular $40/4GB promo plan targeting Shaw’s Freedom Mobile customers. This morning, Freedom Mobile responded with a beastly $40/10GB plan, firing shots back at Telus. Shortly after, Public Mobile pulled their promo, and now according to one source familiar with the matter, Freedom Mobile is ending their promo tonight as well. Of course, plans may change, but according to our source, the memo says the $40/10GB plan is set to disappear tonight.
It smells like there may have been some backroom negotiations to end both promo plans, since nobody wins when Canadian consumers are experiencing actual wireless competition (like those ‘expensive’ prices in Quebec!) and lower prices.
If you’ve been contemplating the Freedom Mobile promo, you should try switching tonight, or you may miss out. While Freedom Mobile’s LTE network still has room to improve, the promotional plan is still one of the better LTE deals out there today.
