It was a good run, but it seems the Big Three carriers are now moving away from the promotional data pricing for 7GB and 10GB contract plans launched in early March 2017 in Quebec as a result of Videotron’s double data deal (now expired).
According to an internal document obtained by MobileSyrup, Bell is doing away with its $17 CAD 7GB promotional data add-on (seen below) and replacing it with a 6GB option for $30 per month by the end of the day on April 6th. Its 10GB plan is also increasing from $25 to $40.
Telus has already removed its promotional data offers in Quebec, now providing 6GB for $30 and 10GB for $40, the same as Bell. Rogers is still offering the promotional plan, though if history is any indication, it’s likely to follow Bell and Telus in letting the promotion expire.
In Ontario, customers currently pay $35 for 2GB of data, $65 for 7GB and $80 for 12GB at Bell, and at Telus they pay $35 for 2.5 GB, $65 for 7GB and $85 for 10GB.
Update 11/04/17: An internal document sourced by MobileSyrup reveals that Rogers is now following suit and expiring expiring its 7GB promo plans (and all associated versions) and the $15 sale on the 10GB plan as of end-of-day April 11th, 2017.
