Neat. Time to finally upgrade from my $40 plan from years ago.

I assume the offer is only from their booth at KDays and not other kiosks around the city?

24-month discount

Contrary to the Live Agent chat Friday, the 25% discount is not permanent but for 24-months.

Sun 2:40pm - Live Agent chat is still saying the discount is permanent, but at the booth they are provisioning an "Event" discount of 25% for 24mo.

I haven't seen the permanent 25% off discount all year, whereas last year I was seeing threads about it every few months. Might be a change in policy :(

Pretty sure it was across from the military display, near the north entrance (coming from lrt)

Wasnt paying that much attention though.
