Eastlink is hoping to make it easier for customers to upgrade their phones with its new ‘EasyUp’ program.
EasyUp lets customers upgrade their phone every 12 months, and comes with device protection bundled in. To do an upgrade, customers will have to return their ‘registered device’ to an Eastlink store, which will waive their existing ‘EasyTab’ balance.
Essentially, if you add EasyUp to your account when you get a device on EasyTab from Eastlink, you’ll be able to jump up to a new device in 12 months, subject to eligibility requirements. Customers must also purchase the new phone on EasyTab.
EasyUp offers three tiers, starting at Tier 2, which determine the monthly cost and which devices are eligible. You can read all the tiers below:
EasyUp Tier 2: $15.99 per month
- Samsung A70

EasyUp Tier 3: $17.99 per month
