Freedom Mobile has launched in Nanaimo, British Columbia, again expanding its service on Vancouver Island.
Nanaimo MLA, Sheila Malcolmson, joined the Mayor of Nanaimo, Dean Prince, along with Vice-President and General Manager, Corporate Retail West for Freedom Mobile, to launch the newest retail location at Woodgrove Centre this morning.
“The people of Nanaimo deserve better — and that means using Freedom Mobile to keep more money in their pockets. We look forward to providing Nanaimo residents with a real alternative to the Big Three wireless carriers by delivering excellent service and Canada’s most affordable unlimited data plans,” said Paul McAleese, President, Wireless, Shaw Communications, in a press release.
“By making affordable and abundant data plans available, Freedom Mobile continues to make an undeniable impact on the marketplace in bringing down wireless prices for Canadians. Nanaimo residents will benefit greatly from the increased competition we are bringing to their community,” added McAleese.
Three Freedom Mobile retail locations are now available in Nanaimo:
- Woodgrove Centre (6631 N Island Hwy)
- Loblaws’ The Mobile Shop (6435 Metral Drive)
- Walmart (6801 N Island Hwy).
Freedom Mobile is offering the following special offer for residents in Nanaimo:
Save $15/month for 6 months on our Big Gig Unlimited + Talk plans. That means, for just $45/month for 6 months, you get 10GB of Fast LTE Data, plus unlimited Canada-wide.
Wireless speeds are throttled once data caps are exceeded, to 256 Kbps download and 128 Kbps upload. Big 3 wireless carriers are currently offering throttled data of 512 Kbps after data caps of their own ‘unlimited’ plans are exceeded.
Shaw says Freedom Mobile has hired 500 employees in Nanaimo already.
