[Koodo] Koodo Prepaid $15 Base Plan now includes 250MB data

Looks like the $15 base plan on Koodo Prepaid now includes 250MB of data. Used to include no data, everything else is the same as the old plan from what I can tell. So make sure to switch over to this if you are using the $15 plan currently!

Note that it says 'Any base plan changes will occur immediately', so it would probably be wise to strategically make the change on the last day of your billing cycle.

Does the 250 MB Data carry over like it does with the booster?

Nope.

Wouldn’t Public Mobile be better... free incoming and 2$ off per month with autopay?

and 100 min talk. Unless I am missing it, the Koodo $15 plan doesn't have any minutes. You have to buy a booster of 100min for $10 which to compare to Public Mobile plan at $15 per month (minus 2$ and 250MB with autopay), would be more like $25 per month for unlimited text, 100 min talk, and 250MB data.

Boosters carry over each month. It's a one time purchase.

for 100 min. i was comparing price and in order to have the equal amount of minutes from Koodo you would be paying $25 per month vs the other 3. If you like you can compare minutes. With Public Mobile you get 1200 minutes per year, with Koodo you get 100 in a year and it's still more on a monthly basis. No matter how you look at it, the Public Mobile, Chatr and Lucky are all cheaper.

If you buy on the Koodo sales the difference is fairly small. $30 will net 1200 mins on bonus and you can earn 10% back on the monthly plan to pay for the minutes.

Isn't Public Mobile's data for that price 3G only?
(not saying that 3g data is bad, just something to consider)

It doesn't look like there's any such restriction for Koodo's plan.
Also Koodo gives $1.50 in credit with "auto-topup".

My question is if you switch, do you have to pay another $15 right away?
So, like OP said, it would be best to wait until the last day or for your plan to run out first (and remember to remove auto-topup).

Great experience with koodo here! Iv been with them for 3 years now, not a heavy user so it works and i can take the savings. A booster of minutes lasts me 6 months and since we go to the states often it is convenient that i can just get booster mins and texts and leave them in the account for them to rollover. I look at it as almost just ~20 per month for me in terms of net usage. Thanks OP!

When we're talking 250mb, it's almost BETTER to have a slower internet connection. Mitigate the 'inadvertent' downloading of massive data before you realize what's going on & blow through it in 10s.

lol. Well., Koodo has shock-free data? Or is that not a standard for all plans & this would incur overages?

In this day and age, as someone who went through the $20 multi pack that Rogers introduced in 2006'ish? 2009'ish? that had like 10 or 20mb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can tell you, that you CAN use a cellphone and ONLY burn that much data. However, to the layman - it is gonna be a huge learning curve.

You have to really discipline yourself in not browsing instagram, you'll have to disable insta vid play, downgrade ALL playback settings for youtube/iG/snap is out the window haha. It's really 250mbs or emergency use, emails (disable auto attachment download).

Even emails, which used to be text only & thus, for BB, you can blow through thousands of emails & still not even HIT any data thresholds, but for smartphones, email is now data rich. Graphics intensive. I just don't understand how they are peddling 250mb. Maybe it is obviously in hopes that you'll blow through it every month & incur overages.

Unless you get shockfree data, which isn't unheard of. I mean Kudos to Koodo for introducing that. Mind Blown!

Cheers.

Oh..side point.

I remember back in 2002'ish, I just got the new multipack (unlim sms/mms/20mb or 100mb whatever it was) & had gone bonkers sending picture messages. The next month I got a $130 overage bill for data. I was like WTF is that. As my heart sank, as a struggling poor lemming, shocked to consider how the heck I could scrape together that much. After looking at my bill I realized what had happened. Their system hadn't coded the MMS I sent as MMS, but rather as DATA. LOL. A quick phone call with the agent & she recognized the glitch & reversed the charges. That was heart attack in the making.

Happy Friday Mofos!
