Koodo offers $60/10GB promo deal in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia

Comments

  • Screw you Atlantic Canada. Great competition eastlink provides!

    • MoYeung

      Move to West Coast?

  • MrQ

    koodo is the best option since there is no 24 month “bonus” bs, it is 10gb for life

    • Sounds that way, just got of the phone with telus and they said that it goes to 5gb after 6 months.

    • MrQ

      telus hasn’t started yet.
      But koodo is definitely 10gb forever

    • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

      And seems like Telus is AB/BC only, no mentions of Ontario.

    • MrQ

      Koodo is AB/BC/ON, it’s right on their website. telus starts tomorrow, but it should be ON as well. Expect rogers/fido/bell to follow as well for ON

    • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

      Yeah if you click on the Telus link to the RFD thread, it’s Alberta. Anyhow RFD is a mess right now handling this influx of plans.

    • MrQ

      negative

    • Rawle “Speedz” Richardson

      totally agree

    • Andrew Goldenberg

      The other carriers have all changed their tune. The data is now permanent in all cases if this plan.

  • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

    The thread over at RFD on this is exploding, posted this morning and 15+ pages already.

    This is the sad state of telco we are in Canada, people flood in when they see something reasonably priced.

  • Tim

    I’m seeing on RFD, that some existing Koodo customers have been able to switch to this plan after calling 611

    • Ricky Bobby

      Was about to port my number to fido/virgin mobile given previous experiences. As an existing customer I called in and made the switch.

      If you don’t mind waiting for almost 2 hours on the line, I was able to switch from my existing plan to this plan. You’ll be transferred to the customer support or retention department though and wasn’t given a hard time about switching plans.

  • JD

    Links to the Telus deal? Google can’t even find this elusive deal…

    • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

      It’s on the splash page when you go onto Koodo’s site right now. Details are sparse, they tell you to go to a store.

    • JD

      Telus deal on a Koodo site?

    • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

      OK, you mean the update… It says it’ll start the 16th there. Today is the 15th.

      Besides if it’s BYOD, there’s no point waiting to go to Telus, it’s the same network. Unless Telus’ deal is $60/10GB with a phone.

  • JD

    Update link doesn’t show any info. It says the requested thread does not exist.

  • Ricky Bobby

    Virgin Mobile has this offer too for ON.

    • It’s Me

      No. Virgin has a $65 3GB plan, that they discount by $10 for 1 year and add 7GB bonus for 24 months.

    • Kurt

      Agent told me it’s forever for the bonus data, but only 12 months for the credit. Which is fine with me as long as the bonus data is forever. I’m just calling back to confirm now how this 7GB will reflect on the system

  • Omis

    Koodo is 10 gig. Not that 5+5 bonus data for two years that Rogers is offering

    • It’s Me

      Rogers…taking advantage of the slow and mathematically challenged,

    • Rawle “Speedz” Richardson

      Koodoo is 10 gigs and its not limited time

  • JD

    Just got off live chat with Telus. I couldn’t get the deal today, but they are calling me tomorrow morning so I can get the plan. 🙂

    • Is it going to be available in Ontario do you know?

    • JD

      I would hope so if the competition is doing it. I don’t know for sure though.

    • Artak Markosyan

      It is

  • samsvoc

    This “special” should be an everyday occurrence, for everyone.

  • Filibeto

    Is there a difference in going with Telus over Koodo? Isn’t it essentially the same thing?

    • 3ygy8w8a

      Telus has wifi calling and volte (or soon will). Also isn’t Telus 3+3 GB? So in 24 months it becomes 6GB? Double check, not sure on that one..

    • My 1/2 cents

      Unlike Rogers, Telus/Bell, wifi calling is only good if you’re in Canada. Nobody is sure if a VPN will work to trick Telus/Bell into getting wifi calling to work outside Canada.

  • George Jia

    Fido store just confirmed that they will have the same option tomorrow, and the 5 hours of free data option is included too.

    • It’s Me

      Not the same but close. Lose half the data in 2 years. Also Fido/Rogers jack prices up on their competitive match plans when the competition promos expire. Expect it to be $70 by summer.

    • Sean Metivier

      Wait what? After 6 months they just change the plan?

    • It’s Me

      No one knows what they’ll do. They could change the price. Last year they did crazy business for the $40/4GB plan, then a few months later informed their customers it was now a $45 plan. Customers had nowhere to no by then since the other carriers promos had long since ended.

      Since they were forced into this plan by Koodo, I assume they’ll make up for it soon enough.

    • Sean Metivier

      Sadly Rogers and their Fido flanker are only ones with coverage in my area (unless you like HSPA+ that sub 2Mbps and drops calls.

    • Anthony

      Nope. Best Buy sent me an email that said that they have the exact same thing at Virgin, Fido, Koodo and Telus. It’s might be some promotion that’s only at best buy though

    • Andrew Goldenberg

      Rogers just texted everyone and said it’s now permanent and not for just 2 years.

    • It’s Me

      As permanent as anything I guess. Hopefully more permanent than Rogers and Fido $40 plan from last year. That was permanent for about 3 months.

  • Rawle “Speedz” Richardson

    Just switched from Virgin to 60/10G plan at my Local Koodo store @ 40 Eglington Square mall

  • Uzair Abbas

    Currently with Rogers. Home phone and internet is Telus. Anyone knows what discount, if additional, if I port the line to Telus? Or flat out $60?

  • My 1/2 cents

    Is there a direct link to Koodo’s website for this plan?

    • It’s Me

      Main page has the ad, but no link to sign up since it is supposed to be in store only.

  • Techguru86

    Finally they are taking freedom serious, they must be really hurting numbers for the big 3 especially with IPhones now

    • Phil Verhey

      Freedom has stores as far north as barrie … & with roaming being free, their network size doesnt matter, put the phone on EXT and enjoy.
      I know plenty of people who’ve driven from as far as Ottawa & North bay for a freedom phone plan.

      The CRTC opening all celltowets to everyone for free was long overdue … They were subsidised with taxes, so they should have been public day 1

  • Eluder

    Anyone know if this plan includes global texting as well?

    • Phantomplayz

      Where did you get that info?

    • jay

      yes global text fido confirmed

    • Eluder

      Direct from Koodo customer service.

    • Phantomplayz

      And its unlimited anytime mins thru out Canada not just province?

    • Eluder

      Correct.

  • nokye

    Highly upset I have a year left with Virgin, it’s been nothing but inexplicably high bills since joining them. Not a fan. Was with Fido before that and they were really trying it with me too. I’d go with Public Mobile but would like to upgrade my device and can’t go about buying outright and live well outside the GTA and can’t get Freedom. As long as Koodo keeps this going, I can definitely say I’ll be joining.

    • Phil Verhey

      Freedom goes as far north as barrie

    • nokye

      I’m far northeast of Caledon. No coverage.

  • Ernie

    So F all for the Atlantic provinces. This stinks to high heaven.

    • jay

      Ontario

    • heynow00

      Ontario is definitely not an Atlantic province

  • Anthony

    Just got an email from Best Buy. Seems as if it’s offered in Ontario with Koodo, Virgin, Fido and Telus.

  • jay

    just got confirmation on fido 60$/10 GB 85$/10GB with a large tap and dont forget spotify

  • qq

    Well, nobody cares about your useless opinion that doesn’t even make sense.

  • Herp Derp

    So…. Have any people tried to get this deal from their EXISTING carrier? Or does everyone here switch carriers every 2 months which is ridiculous?

    • Andrew Goldenberg

      Yeah I got this on my two existing koodo lines. The agent said the only criteria is to not have a tab balance.

  • Kyle Jay

    any thoughts on the terms of service between the carriers? When i look at bell’s it says they can change they plan with 30 days notice but koodo and telus say they can change the plan except for the price guarantee. Anybody have experience with any of the carriers jacking up the rates later on down the line?

  • Marklar M. Marklar

    They’re all like “hey, how may people can we piss off that are in the middle of their contracts right now?”

  • bloodless

    I left Koodo 3 months ago to take a 50.00 / 6GB plan with Videotron.
    Videotron’s coverage, speeds, and voice quality are definitely NOT anywhere near as good as Koodo/TELUS.
    When I saw this plan, I had to decide if paying 10.00 more (plus tax), for 4GB/month more was worth it – as in reality, the most data I ever used was around 5GB.
    Long story short – I am now happy to be back with Koodo.
    With 10GB of data and unlimited everything else – the plan is definitely “future-proof”, as it is unlikely that we’ll see an offer like this for a while.
    Add to this the fact that the awesome coverage, speeds, voice quality of the Koodo/TELUS/Bell network is superior to the competition.
    With Videotron I experienced “no service” a lot – in certain stores, hospitals, and when travelling outside of the city.
    With Koodo – in the same areas – at least 2 bars in those locations.

    I am satisfied to pay 60.00/month for a huge amount of data on a network that is stellar.
    It is funny – going to the Koodo site right now – and seeing their (existing) plans – you quickly see how much you’re getting “hosed”.
    It is pretty much a no-brainer to take the plunge and get the new 60.00/10GB plan.

    PS, I did call into Koodo today – as I noticed that when I looked at my rate plan online, it does not specifically spell out the “unlimited canada calling”.
    I know it IS part of the plan, but it is odd that it is not listed there at all (for anyone).
    Maybe they’ll correct it soon.

    • Phil Verhey

      Umm… You could have switched your phone to the EXT network & used the Telus/Koodo & Bell & Rogers networks for free

      …. Roaming charges are banned for years now…. There’s no such thing as individual company networks anymore.

      The Cell networks & phone lines were built with Tax dollars & the CRTC declared them public use.
