Freedom Mobile is expanding again, but this time into home internet instead of expanding its coverage areas.
Subscribers in Calgary can sign up for Freedom Home Internet as long as they have a postpaid smartphone plan with the carrier that costs $40 or more. This price excludes promotions and discounts.
If you’re a Freedom customer that is able to sign up for this new service you are eligible for unlimited internet with 150Mbps download speeds for $55 per month, said a Freedom spokesperson to MobileSyrup.
Customers can sign up for this pilot test at 11 Freedom retail locations around Calgary.
The locations are as follows:
- CF Chinook Centre
- CF Market Mall
- Southcentre Mall
- 1013 17 Avenue S.W.
- CORE Shopping Centre
- Fashion Central
- Sunridge Mall
- Marlborough Mall
- South Trail Crossing
- Pacific Place Mall
- CrossIron Mills
When customers sign up they’re given a free Wi-Fi modem that a Freedom spokesperson said is easy to take home and install on your own.
There isn’t much information on Freedom’s website about the new plan, but there is a support page.
While this is a new move for Freedom, Shaw, the carrier’s parent company, already offers home internet plans. That said, Freedom is undercutting Shaw’s offer. Shaw offers 100Mbps internet for $55 per month for the first year, but it’s not unlimited and only has a 500GB data cap.
Update 07/11/2019: Freedom now has a web page to show off the home internet offerings.
