Quebec continues to be a hotbed for wireless competition. Regional carrier Videotron has proposed “a winning proposition for customers” with its newest limited time offering: a $79.95 per month plan than includes unlimited data in the province.
The $79.95/month plan also includes unlimited Quebec-wide calls, text, photo and video messaging, caller ID, voicemail and unlimited long-distance calls between subscribers on the Québec Unlimited plan.
Videotron made a point to announce that they’re the first and only carrier to currently offer this type of plan, but as we’ve seen many times in the past its competitors are quick and usually follow suit within days. Anything is possible, right?
Update: As people have pointed out in the comments, the terms and conditions of Videotron’s data fair usage policy:
“Videotron starts managing Unlimited Voice and data customers’ Internet traffic when their data usage exceeds 5GB within a given billing cycle.Once the 5 GB mark has been surpassed, Unlimited Voice and data plans’ download and upload speeds will be put in low priority. Depending on the severity and duration of Internet traffic on Videotron’s network, upload and download speeds may be slowed. However, even after a customer has exceeded 5 GB of data use, they may still be privy to unused normal-priority upload and download bandwidth.”
