God damn Mobilesyrup posted it on their site. Way to kill the buzz. Everytime something gets posted on MS, Any retention department just shuts everyone down.
Lol, I googled 'Mobilesyrup' and it comes up with 'Koodo offered user 8GB/$49 through retention program' as a Top Story.

So, their major headline is almost literally "one guy gets a decent plan in Canada".

Shows how crap cell prices in Canada are.

As a new customer, or a retention upgrade? Did you have to try very hard? I'm on the $48/5GB, and I'll happily take an extra GB free!

For someone in Ottawa, is it better to just go with the Videotron deal (unlimited talk + text + 6gb data for $50 but lowered by $5 per line for every line added up to 3 [i.e. if you have 4 lines, you all pay $35])?

You lose 2gb of data but save ~$15 per month (depending on how many lines you group together). You also don't have to worry about potentially being forced into an in-province 'market rate' plan.

Ottawans?
Bump.

I am with Fido in Quebec with the 49$/month for unltd Canada wide and text with 6Gb. When I talked abt the Koodo plan they immediately added 2Gb free for 2 years making it a total of 8Gb/month.

True story!

how does the coverage compare between kodoo and public. i get the signal in the underground of my building but i just started a new job and i get a spotty signal even on the main floor.
if the kodoo signal is better i wouldnt mind the $50 - 5gb plan that has been offered.

This is a good deal, gl to everyone that can get it, I've been on 8gb/55$-10$ credit for a year. No complain, so far.

Network is exactly the same. So you'll have the same issue.

So basically to summarize this thread OP got a retention deal that is not being offered to general public. Some people will call in and may get a good deal on a extra gig or may get super lucky and offered the same retention deal or something similar but its very few and far between.

Went from $55 for 3gb to $55 for 4gb. 30 min wait for retention department, probably getting flooded cause of this thread.

@djdestroyer Videotron is a no-brainer for "most" Ottawans who for whatever reason must keep a 613 number and are OK with Rogers coverage. In Ottawa, on Videotron you get a native connection to Rogers towers. When you cross the bridge to Gatineau, you'll switch to Videotron towers, meaning if you're on a call while crossing the bridge, the call will drop (like crossing the Canada-US boarder). Doesn't affect billing. If you rarely cross between Ottawa and Gatineau, or can switch to an 819 number, then the big three (especially Virgin and Koodo) are king (where their activation and upgrade promo's in Ottawa are based on rest of Canada rate plans, yet you get the cheaper plans on QC numbers).

I'd recommend porting an Ottawa cell number to Fongo. Then grab an 819 number for your cell. If you can't do that, then Videotron is the way to go.
