Regional carriers Videotron and SaskTel have altered some plans in response to price increases from Rogers, Bell, Telus and their respective flanker brands.
Instead of increasing prices, Quebec’s Videotron decided to lower the data allotments on two of its premium plans. Its $74.95 per month plan now offers 3GB of data instead of 4GB, and the $84.95 plan has been reduced from 6GB to 5GB.
The company did the same with its bring-your-own-device plans, though they still offer considerable discounts of between $15 and $20 per month over the regular subsidized plan.
In Saskatchewan, SaskTel raised prices across its Voice and Data plan lineup by $5 each. Even with the increase, most Canadians would do bad things for a $90 per month plan that included unlimited calls and texts and 13GB of Canada-wide data.
We have reached out to MTS to see if it plans to make changes to its plans, and will update this article when we hear back.
