Shaw’s Freedom Mobile is set to launch their LTE wireless networks in Victoria, BC, and Red Deer, Alberta, this Friday, February 8.
Back in December, Freedom Mobile announced specific launch timeframes for Victoria and Red Deer, noting February 2019. The company also asked customers to sign up to a mailing list to be notified of an “exclusive launch offer”.
Now, Freedom Mobile has revealed these launch promos, which include a $27.50 per month Big Gig plan with 10GB data for six months (with Digital Discount). Freedom Mobile explains, “That’s 50% off the regular price while we put the finishing touches on our network and finally provide Victoria [or Red Deer] with a true choice in a wireless provider.”
This is only available for customers who activate before February 28, 2019.
Hey Red Deer and Victoria!
A new choice in wireless is coming. We’re opening this Friday, February 8.
