[Fido] Fido, Virgin 8GB at $45 BYOP for new/existing customers (YMMV, MANITOBA)

Passed by a Wireless Wave kiosk this afternoon and saw this sign advertising the promo. I've been searching for promo pricing on these sites and I have never seen this advertised online.

The salesperson said the promo was for either Fido or Virgin Mobile not knowing how long the promo will be around for.
  • 8GB Data
  • Unlimited Text, Picture and Video Messages from Canada to Canadian, U.S. and International Mobile Numbers
  • Unlimited Canada-Wide Minutes
  • Call Display
  • Voicemail
  • Call Waiting
  • Conference Call
  • Additional Data Charge - Overage is billed at $10.00 per each 0.10 GB increment above data included in plan, capped at a total charge of
    $500.00 per billing month.

Ended up porting my number from Public Mobile ($40/5gb) to this plan. The extra data and the full LTE speed justified the extra $5 for me.
I did have to do a credit check. Free SIM card. $35 Activation fee.

Hrmm, I'm on $60/10GB. I would pounce on this as I never come close to 10GB but would love to save $15/mo! Question is if they'll honour it in Ontario.

*Edit:* So I just called and CSR said "must be new, don't see it. Loyalty doesn't have anything like that either. Closest is $70 for 7GB." He suggested I contact Wireless Wave and get them to contact Virgin lol. So that got me nowhere. If someone manages to nab this in Ontario... do share!

Thanks! I just got my $48 5GB plan switched through the online chat on the Fido website. No hassle.
The guy confirmed that the 8GB is permanent, and that the $45 isn't a discounted rate that will go up after a year.

Op, please make the MB more prominent by changing it to MANITOBA.

I got super excited, then eventually saw the nondescript MB.

I wish BC has this... it's ridiculous where MB and Sask and QC get the best plans. CRTC has to do something about this.

Where as freedom is more transparent with their plans offered nationally.
Koodo $50.00 8gb S9+
Virgin Mobile $40 6gb S8+
Public Mobile $38 5gb iPhone 8+

From BC, gave it a shot. Online chat confirmed they don't see this plan.

Just tried in Ontario. No dice. Said it's available but not in my region.

It's amazing what competition and choices can do for consumers.

Koodo has been offering the $45 8gb deal since the fall and it's actually listed in their pamphlets with all the other plans.

I guess that Fido and Virgin are starting to match it finally.
