[Freedom Mobile] Freedom Home Internet $55 - CALGARY ONLY

Not really sure how 'hot' this deal is, but it is of some interest to those that are with Freedom Mobile.

It's basically 150Mpbs download speeds, unlimited usage, for $55/month, which seems like a very good price to me. Only available in Calgary at the moment, and it's in testing.

This is the only information that Freedom has up currently:

Hopefully they can expand their footprint with the same pricing across Canada, at least were they have a presence.

If they do expand, it'll most likely be limited to Shaw's service territory. I do find it interesting Shaw is looking at selling their cable broadband under the Freedom Mobile banner. Strange world we live in.

Sure is strange world, but Bell pioneered this whole bundling thing - Home phone, cell, TV internet all for one "LOW" price.

Then comes Rogers....

Isn't this exactly the same as Virgin (Bell) and Fido (Rogers) home internet sold in Ontario?

I wonder what would happen if I called Shaw and asked for a price match...?

Call and ask them to do better. If they can sell externally for $55 and still make a profit internally then they can definitely sell you for lower than that.

Not as far as I know/understand it. I can't speak for bell but the Fido internet is a wireless hot spot fixed to a certain location/tower where as Freedom's internet is connected to a coax cable.

Does this work off Freedom towers? Or are they reselling Shaw cable?

Reselling Shaw. It's Shaw's 'Advanced' Coax modem/WiFi router.

I have internet 300 from Shaw for even less on a 2 year contract. Wait for Shaw promos.
Its the same damn internet from the same company.

I am using 300/20 from cannet (cancom had the same deal) for $47 all-in. I am guessing freedom will be using shaw's infrastructure too, so how is this a better deal?

We too have Shaw 300 unlimited data and we're paying about $90 a month (promotion rate will be good until Jan 2020). I consider trying something else because our wifi connection has been spotty since the upgrade. I used to run my laptop in my bedroom without problems but now the connection keeps disconnecting every five minutes or so. We are using the highest tier modem from Shaw. Not sure exactly what's going on.

It's not as i got promo deal from Shaw for 600/20 for $60/month. 1/4 of the speed for $55 and on Freedom cell towers with higher latency and 500GB data cap definitely not a good deal.

This kind of speed is worth $30/mth at best. And if they want us in Calgary to be guinea pigs to test out their network, it should be free for the 1st year.

EDIT: I wonder what would happen if I take that sim out and put it on a mobile hotspot. $55 for 500GB is pretty cheap in comparison. :D
