Spoke with Bell. Told me this does not exist and the story is false. He said EPP is for Bell employees only. My company uses BELL and they said they old way for this to work is for me to convert my personal phone to the company account, which I DO NOT want to do as I already have a corporate phone. This is for my persona phone. I'm pretty sure that is not the case as this is the norm with Bell. Terrible customer service reps when it comes to awareness of deals. I have 5GB now with a BYOD plan that is $65. I enquired about increasing to 10 GB and they told me it would be $85. My friend pays $65 with Telus BYOD plan for 10 GB. So frustrated with Bell not every matching or offering better plans my friends get with Telus. I'm due for hardware upgrade and looks like it is time to switch, despite being a long-term Bell customer. Would consider Freedom as they have good plans, but I am concerned about network coverage in rural Alberta and B.C. which is where I would use my phone.

Too bad plans are higher now, I have a SK 15GB + 5GB Bonus for $69.50+Tax Canada-US Plan. These plans are $11-$20+Tax more expensive....definitely better than what they offered before.

I just grabbed an iPhone XR with 10 gigs on my Telus EPP for $80.50 a month. $75 for the plan, and $5.50 for the phone. $200 buyout at the end. Definitely will buy out and flip.

Three weeks ago it was $80 and $0 down for an S10+. Emailed Smart cell to see if that deal was going to return. No response 4 days later. Apparently it's not looking good since all the phones went tab.

The key is to zero loyalty. Any time I see a better deal I just leave my existing provider. I give them the one exit retention phone call. If they don't match or better on the spot I'm gone. I have 2 phones on the $60/10gb plans with bell. I left Telus did the deal two years ago. I'm also on BYOD. These guys never lose money when you finance your phone with them over three years. Buy a good used phone here on BST and don't look back.

True and bell were offering it after 2 weeks of launching those plans.

I agree. They have to explain to CRTC about the 3 years financing before July 31st.

Rogers already sent it last Monday (we are right.best for the customers)

TELUS and bell are pending.

Rogers sent what? My Rogers epp and Telus epp are virtually the exact same.

That sounds like a corp plan. An EPP is a personal plan that is discounted because of where you work and not tied to the company (Much like any discounts you get because of where you work. Think Venngo). EPP is not just for Bell employees. Not all companies will have EPP or corp plans or both. The EPP would stay in your name.

I was able to get the discount today sucks that the 20gb is already up to 105 before the discount. Had to call in as our epp site still has the non unlimited plans.

Couldn't get the 50gb plan which is for the best I'd just turn into a tethering junkie.
