$40 for 4GB BYOP Plans - Virgin and Fido

I'm not sure if this is posted anywhere yet, but just thought I'd pass on the info. Both Virgin and Fido are offering $40 for 4GB BYOP plans for new activations. Was told Fido was doing it for existing customers as well, but not 100% sure.

Price is for 12 months, but requires $35 activation fee + $10 SIM card, however I was able to obtain a $25 credit (YMMV). Was also given 1000 long distance minutes to a limited number of countries including HK/China and 10% off each additional line on the account with Fido. Please note, this was at the First Markham Place Fido kiosk.

I made the jump from Virgin to Fido, because Virgin wouldn't offer me the new activation deal.

Hope this helps!

i went to the online Fido chat. They offered me 4GB for $50 with unlimited minutes with $10 off for the next 12 months. So deal checks out.

Agreed, not the "hottest" deal around but for those that are not huge data users i think it's a decent price.

No happy with coverage, service, or prices? We are with Fido and Koodo seem to have good offers for phone subsidary.

You mean $50 for 4GB? Sweet if you can land 1GB more for the same price. As per above post, it's not on the Fido site.

No. 40$ for 5gb. If I did not have a company phone, I might have chosen it, otherwise I stay with my current data-less plan.

Called as an existing Fido customer and was told that it doesn't exist. Guess I should try again later for another rep?
