Fido, Koodo and Virgin Mobile offer limited-time 3GB data bonuses

The Big Three's flanker brands are all offering a spring data bonus

Fido, Virgin Mobile and Koodo are all offering limited-time 3GB data bonuses upon the activation of certain plans.

At Rogers-owned Fido, the deal is available to customers activating or upgrading on Pulse plans above $50 CAD, both BYOD or carrying device subsidies.

The 3GB data bonus is available on in-market 1GB, 3GB, 5GB, 8GB and 10GB Fido Pulse plans. That means a 1GB plan becomes 4GB and a 5GB plan becomes 8GB.

The offer is available across the majority of the carrier’s footprint, except in Quebec. Additionally, in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the promotion only provides 2GB of bonus data on certain plans.

At Bell-owned Virgin Mobile, the 3GB bonus is similarly available for new activations and upgrades to data-carrying plans above $50, regardless of subsidy. Additionally, as with Koodo, the deal is not available in Quebec, while Manitoba and Saskatchewan customers only get a 2GB bonus on select plans.

Telus-owned Koodo essentially mirrors its two main competitors in its offering, providing a 3GB bonus for plans above $50, regardless of subsidy. The carrier notes that the bonus data is only good for 24 months, however.

As with Fido and Virgin, there’s a 2GB deal for select plans in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and no deal at all for Quebec customers (though thankfully, Quebecois can always fall back on prices that are lower than the national average).
