There’s a promo pricing battle brewing in Alberta.
After Telus flanker brand Public Mobile launched a $45/4GB promo plan with unlimited province-wide calling — which was confirmed as available in Alberta and Ontario — Bell-owned Virgin Mobile has now struck back with a 4GB plan with Canada-wide calling for only $5 more, exclusively in Alberta.
Below is what Virgin is currently offering bring your own device (BYOD) customers.
- $45/month: Unlimited province-wide talk, global text and 4GB of data
- $50/month: Unlimited Canada-wide talk, global text 4GB of data
Rogers also reached out to MobileSyrup to let us know that the carriers’ Fido flanker brand is offering a similar deal.
For a limited-time, Fido is offering 4GB at $45/month based on the activation of a $55 2GB Data, Talk and Text Bring Your Own Phone plan with 2GB of bonus data after a $10 bill credit. The promotion is only available in-store, says the carrier, and will drop off when customers next change their plan or upgrade their phone.
So far, Koodo isn’t advertising a competitive deal.
Meanwhile, Freedom Mobile is outstripping all of the aforementioned carriers with a 12-day flash sale for a $40/6GB plan with unlimited nationwide calling and a $50/8GB plan with 1GB of U.S. data and unlimited Canada-U.S. calling. The budget carrier offers its Band 66 LTE network in Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta.
