Cheapest per GB is Koodo Unlimited.
Activate a new line every 10 days, unlimited internet for ~$60-70+tax/month.

I've never seen this plan before. Is this an SK/MB or Quebec only plan?
A wise RFD'er once said, "Buy now, think later."

lol. Koodo gives Unlimited Data for 10 days for all new lines on any plan. You can milk the system by activating a new line every 10 days and cancelling the previous one. Cost is SIM card fee for each activation + whatever plan you choose/3.

Will they auto-approve you every 10 days?

Day 1: line 1 activated.
Day 11: line 2 activated.
Day 12: line 1 cancelled.
Day 22: line 3 activated
Day 23: line 2 cancelled.

No approving needed. Unless you are on the spending limit program, you can have 5 lines active at the same time. This only requires 2.

TBH data quality isn't great. Random lags loading page. HAving mobi subscribers on same network doesn't help either.

If I used anymore data than now, I would gladly move up to Big3 data plan for the sweet sweet lag free LTE

Videotron 65/6GB plan includes $650 off tablet so it's probably same thing.

Though Videotron's only tablet that you get "$650 off" is a Samsung tablet from 2014

I was talking about this post. comparing tbaytel to Fido flex tab.
the downside with fido, you need two active sim card. one sim card is the regular line, and the second sim is the fido flex tab sim card. (I maybe wrong though) can you get JUST "the fido flex tab" only ?

Cheapest per GB of data plan (excluding wind due to cogestion with data speeds) tbaytel-prepaid-data-125-20gb-365-day-expiry-1397855/
-At $6.25 per GB
-Difficult part is getting a tbaybel sim

If you go with Fido flex tab it is $35 for 5GB rather than $40 ($7 per gb)

I want to know more about if tbaytel worth the hassle. One rfd member is offering to get tbaytel. but the initial cost for tbaytel sim is so high. $100 just from the sim card shipped to vancouver BC . then another $125 to buy 20GB data that is valid for 1 year.


fido seems to have comparable price per GB. but the caveat is that you have to be a fido subscriber (I think, I hope I make sense :P ) ...


I was thinking to get tbaytel sim via another avenue (lakehead) to see if the initial cost is lower.

Fido's flex plan is 35$/5gb which works out to 7$ gb. It starts @ 1gb @ $15 and then goes up from there. Works on LTE.

With wind, you can't even get more than 1Mbps, and your phone calls would be delayed like crazy
isnt that plan for TABLETS only? It says on the website. http://www.fido.ca/consumer/tablets
