Just received the internet beta invitation! Smiling Face With Sunglasses

Just wondering, how is the throttling with fizz? I'm planning to get the 120 plan and I am wondering how much of the bandwith I'll actually get during peak hours.

When/if they throttle, it's on upload speed only and never noticeably (from my personal experience)

Nice! I switched over to Carrytel 60/10 @ 40$/month a few months ago and I have seen throttling up to 50% of my speed at peak hours. A friend of mine saw up to 95% throttling (only 3mbps) in the first week he activated the service.

I thought the mobile plan pricing was locked in. Can someone confirm? Also I would like to sign up for the internet service, but have not been invited, can someone sign me up for?

Mobile plan pricing is locked in for launch prices, not for beta prices. When beta ends you change to launch prices

I haven't noticed any throttling (tested friday, saturday and Sunday).

I have my daughter signed up for $25 for the all inclusive plan with 2 GB data, which is a sweet deal. It does have $34 crossed off next to it. So once the service offially launches do I lose me rebate?

If you don't change your plan after the service launch you will keep the price

Signed up this week, got my sim in 2 days, took 15 minutes to port my number and get service. Impressed so far! No issue to report yet.

Videotron is more expensive than fizz with USA coverage. 6g data with USA coverage is already $55.

Don’t buy vanilla prepaid credit card from shell. It doesn’t work with Fizz. Card works with other companies , I use it to pay gas after.
