Koodo to exclusively launch Prepaid services with Walmart Canada

Interesting move here by TELUS’ sub-brand Koodo Mobile. We’ve been tipped for the past month about a new prepaid offering – something completely different than their current set up of buying a phone at retail pricing, or the Tab system.

Apparently Koodo will exclusively work with Walmart Canada and offer Prepaid phones and plans. This will go into place starting August 20th and the phones are meant for prepaid only, will not work on the Tab phones. At launch you can expect to see the LG Optimus One (priced at $98.83 at Walmart) and the Samsung Galaxy Ace (priced at $148.83 at Walmart). The prepaid rate plan packages fall under talk, text and data and here’s some of the details we’ve been able to gather up:

– $15 for Unlimited text
– $25 for Unlimited text and 7PM evenings and weekend
– $35 for Unlimited incoming and texting and 5PM evening and weekends
– $50 for Unlimited local calling and text

– Minutes are purchased in units and can be rolled over to the next month (account must be in good standing and active):
– 1 unit = 1 minute of Canada-wide calling
– 2 units = 1 minute calling the United States
– 5 units = 1 minute international calling

– 25 units for $5
– 100 units for $10
– 500 units for $25

– 100MB $10
– 500MB $25
– 1GB $35

We’ll have more info on this shortly.
(Thanks tipster!)
