Cheapest mobile data-only options in Canada?
is bugging me continuously.
What is the cheapest option now for a data-only cell plan?
Let us say, with the following restrictions:
- it should be cheaper than typical cellphone plan, e.g. < 50$ / month
- it should have reasonable amount of data, e.g. >= 5GB / month
At this price point, the " tablet flex plans" from "Robellus" provide you with 5 GB / month for $40.
(which amounts to 8 $/GB )
I have one of those for emergencies (for when my Wind plan "breaks wind" ),
but it still does not give much incentive to switch permanently.
Is there anything better?
E.g. I'm reading that Wind mobile gives you 10 GB / month for $35
(i.e. 3.5 $/GB, but I doubt one can rely on Wind data-only at this point in time).
For comparison, in the US the typical data rate are pretty close - about 7 $CAD/GB (I checked t-mobile)..
It looks we could not have anything much better in Canada then?
