Solo Mobile drops Unlimited plans by $10 a month

2011 will be the undisputed year of extended carrier promos. We first saw this happen earlier this month with both Mobilicity and Wind giving an extra 2 weeks to their Holiday promos . Then late last week Rogers discount brand Chatr Wireless put a “price freeze” on their $10 discounted Unlimited monthly plans… and now Solo Mobile has come back to the table by dropping their Unlimited $35/month and $45/month plans by $10 to match Chatr.

Reading over the fine print states on that “Available for a limited time only. With new activation. Monthly rate is $25 for months 1 to 6 and then current rate (now $35, subject to change) applies thereafter”… so possibly these prices might stay the firm at the discounted rates as there is no clear expiry date.

      exactly, until chatr and solo get data, people will go to wind or mobilicity

  • XER

    Is that a copy cat or real competition? Come on, Bell…

  • kanatacrude

    How come Bell and their Solo thing can’t figure out that the competition is giving unlimited data? Is Bell’s network too crappy to do data like the competition? I’m confused.
