Fido sending out bonus 5GB to some subscribers for free

It's hard to imagine why a carrier would be giving out free data

A user posted on the Red Flag Deals forums and mentioned that Fido offered them 5GB of extra data for free for two years.

The user states that they’re on a 10GB for $65 bring your own device plan. The plan was originally a 10GB for $60 holiday promotion from two years ago.

The text from the carrier says, “Hi, it’s Fido: Great news! We added a 5GB monthly data bonus to your current plan for the next two years. This is an exclusive offer just for you to thank you for being a Fido customer. You don’t have to do anything — the extra data is already on your account. Questions? Visit www.fido.ca/contactus for a list of ways you can reach us.”

So far, no one else has commented on the thread, so it’s hard to gauge how widespread this offer is. Although, this is very similar to a deal that Rogers offered some of its subscribers on November 7th.

It’s likely that this is a preemptive move on Fido’s part given this holiday/Black Friday season carriers are likely going to be offering deals on their plans that hover around the $65 mark.

MobileSyrup has reached out to Rogers for more information regarding this offer.
