The battle in Quebec recently heated up with Vidéotron launching their new 3G+ network. They came out with a selection of 9 devices (12 in total when you consider different colours) and a few different monthly rate plans.
One of the plans Vidéotron offers is called “Infinite Québec plan” for $59.95 per month by itself, or you can bundle it together with other services and get it as low as $49.95 per month (when you bundle up to 3 services) Included in this Infinite Québec plan is:
- local and long-distance calling anywhere and anytime in Québec
- Unlimited incoming text, photo and video messages
- Call waiting, Conference call, Call forwarding
Now Bell wants to keep a tight hold on their market share and have created a new monthly rate plan conveniently called “Unlimited Québec”. This has to be bundled and is for $50 per month and includes:
- Unlimited local and long distance calling in Québec
- Call Waiting, Conference Calling
- Unlimited text messaging can be put on the the plan for $5 a month
Bell states that this plan is “available to residential customers in Québec with all four services (Home phone, Internet, digital TV and wireless (post-paid), with select plans”
For those located in Québec how are you liking the new wave of options available to you?
