[Fido] Free 2GB data-only retention plan

I have a $15 for 2GB data only line from Fido on my phone. Today I call to cancel the data line and I was offered 2 retention plans because I have been a customer for more than 3 months:
1) no contract 12 month free 2GB data-only line. $10/GB overage applies.
2) $7.5/month but no overage charges. I took the first offer.
I don't have a Fido mobile line so I can only get 2GB data. I use the Fongo App which gives me free unlimited calls on a VoIP phone number over wifi or data.

That is the same offer that is available for the ones who got the 3GB/15$ plan.

I am on that plan for my 2 lines since jan-feb if I remember.
Pretty cool to have those lines at 0$ for a free year!

Wait.. What?
You just have free data for a year (2GB)? With no bill? (unless you go. Over?)

For me it was 100% discount, even if you go over. Last month I went over by 8 GB, no charge.

Was that $7.50/month for unlimited data? With LTE speeds I would have picked that up and cancelled my home internet lol.

I have definitely been. Charged for the slightest overage with the fido 15$ 3GB plan. How are you getting 8GB overage for free? Definitely confused...

Yep, I'm on it now on my iPhone. I got 3GB/month for 12 months, $0/month. Using Fongo for free Canada-wide calling and pay $10 every 6 months for Canada-wide Fongo texting. This is one of the hottest deals on RFD imo. I only use a small fraction of the monthly 3GB so I have no idea if I get charged for overage.

Should have checked the forum back in spring. There was a 100% off discount on data-only plan for users that were with fido for at least 6 month.

Meanwhile many of us here already got the free 12-months unlimited data (so it includes unlimited overages too) with free tablets/phones for our retentions, which happened back in February.
so this deal is mehhh...but i guess if ur a straggler who missed out then its better than nothing.

It's 12 month FREE 2GB data. I just called in with 5 mins on the phone and received this offer.

It's perfect timing if you are just off your 6 months free 3 GB data promotion since last Xmas.

Thank you OP!

I have a LG pad combined to my Fido data-only plan. Still 6 months to go. Hope there is still this retention plan at that time.

Do you have the 100% off discount?

I have the 3 GB plan w/ 100% off too. Used 10 GB last month including a day in the US. Bill was $7 (1 day of Fido Roam). Other months I overage and it's free too. $0.

Love this plan!

On the free data plan no overages from other deal with Fido. Best ever summer at cottege. Watching Plex remotely from my home server, youtube all at whatever rez works seamlessly from LT. last few years that would of cost me a kidney to fido. If I were in your shoes $7.5 for unlimited would of been a no brainer. Hope I get that deal offered next February when this gravy train is over.
