Good news Fido $60 - 10 GB subscribers: If your plan says 15 GB, you actually do have 15 GB
My $60 10 GB plan went from 11 GB before my billing cycle reset to 5 GB after the reset, then to 10 GB a few hours later, and now to 15 GB days later. Noticing via the Fido app that the plan name and plan description had changed from the 5 GB BYOP Pulse plan with 5 GB data to a 10 GB BYOP pulse plan with 10 GB data, I just assumed they were changing the base plan to 10 GB and left the 5 GB bonus add-on intact until the changeover was complete, but we still just had 10 GB data. (Note it still says 5 GB BYOP plan when you log in via a web browser.)
Well I was right and wrong. Yes, it seems they are changing the base plan to 10 GB and did leave the 5 GB bonus intact during the changeover, but actually, as long as your data bucket says 15 GB, you actually get 15 GB.
Fido to Honour 5GB Extra Data Added to $60/10GB Plans for Current Billing Cycle
A Fido spokesperson told iPhone in Canada the 5GB data add-on was caused by a “temporary technical issue”, which affected “some Fido customers” on the $60/10GB plan.
So there you have it. If you’re seeing 5GB of extra data on your Fido account that has the $60/10GB plan, you get to keep it for free for this billing cycle. This extra 5GB data, along with Fido’s Data Bytes feature—which offers 5 hours of free data per month—means you’re going to have a happy month to stream video to your heart’s content, to a certain degree.
I'm tempted to just go crazy with TV streaming just to see if I can get near 15 GB, plus max out my DataBytes. So far I have used one DataBytes session for over 1 GB.
