[Shaw] Shaw Mobile $45/25GB (AB/BC) [FOR SHAW INTERNET CUSTOMERS ONLY]

Source: https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/shaw/shaw ... ited-plan/

$45/25GB for main line, and the interesting thing is you can add up to 6 lines of unlimited nationwide talk/text FOR FREE. You can add data to those lines for $10 per GB.
As for the second part of Shaw Mobile—the most compelling—is for Shaw Internet customers to add up to six lines for free, which will include unlimited nationwide talk and text.

These free lines will have the option of purchasing data available at $10 for 1GB, as part of By The Gig plans. Unused data purchased for these lines will automatically rollover for up to 90 days. You can imagine this will be popular for families to get free phone lines for children and other family members.

Shaw Mobile will also have activation fees (like Freedom Mobile), priced at $20 per line. To sign up for Shaw Mobile, one needs to visit a Shaw retail location or over 120 locations of national retail partners in B.C. and Alberta, such as Walmart. You cannot sign up online for now.

The company says Shaw Mobile customers “will pay no data overages in Canada” when using Shaw and nationwide networks, while noting Wi-Fi Calling on compatible devices can be leveraged to make calls on Wi-Fi from anywhere in the world.

Access to B13 ('Extended Range LTE') requires a VoLTE-capable phone.
You need both for an optimal network experience and reliable calls, and B66 for data bandwidth.

If only this was in Ontario.

Is it possible to travel to AB for this deal and have an AB phone number then come back to ON? As long as the service is consistent in ON too.

I am with koodo and have no issues, even in remote/mountain areas. Freedom was no good when I tried 4-5 years ago.

I like this as it forces the others to offer a better price/service.

Dang MB gets left out again. We used to have one of the cheapest cell phone plan rates in all of Canada now we are probably the most expensive

Hmm, from what I see, you don't need a $45 Unlimited main line. As long as you are a "Shaw Fibre+ Internet" customer, you can get the "$0 by the Gig" lines.

"2. $0 By The Gig
Shaw Fibre+ Internet customers are eligible to receive a $15 credit per month on the $15 By The Gig plan.

Koodo operates on the Bellus Networks (Pretty much shared between the two across the country) so I imagine it wouldn't have any issues operating on the larger networks.

Wind rebranding to freedom happened when Shaw bought them out to enter the cellular market. Not sure if they were still Wind when you tried them out but they have made a bunch of progress in service. Just not customer service which is outsourced to the Philippines and all they say is sorry and have no answers Confused Face. I made the switch to Rogers for 20gb 50/month beginning of this year bill is only higher about 10/month but less headaches with customer service Winking Face

This is absolutely amazing!!! $0/mo for unlimited talk and text is bless, but not so much with the $20 activation fee.

Wonder if they’ll waive the activation fee eventually and allow online sign ups... A lot of people would jump on free phone service if there’s upfront fee or monthly fee at all!

Do I care?
What you save in mobile, you pay in home internet. Maximum value for free plan is $8.25 a month (freedom $99/yr)

Thanks for the explanation :).

Here is the link: https://shop.shawmobile.ca/en-CA/plans? ... 7466963122

My only concern is this 2Gb data limit, will have to do some research where the 25th Gb applies. $55 for the line and 2 GB for CA, US & mexico. Is pretty good.

For those who don't know, Shaw Mobile uses a combination of your Shaw home internet, its Shaw Go Wifi network, and Freedom Mobile's LTE network to provide coverage. That's why it's BC/AB only.

Sure, but for someone who has multiple BYOD lines and doesn't need much or any data, the overall price might be worth it. Most people would be paying $25+ per talk/text line, and here they'd get them included in their home internet package

Their device prices seem pretty high, though.

Edit: Their press release indicates that these plans will be available without a bundle at "market rate" as well. Right now, they're just launching to existing Fibre+ customers.
While the biggest savings come from bundling Shaw’s wireless and internet services, Shaw Mobile is also available as a standalone product at market rate.

Now, hopefully the big 3 WILL actually LISTEN to the government and reduce it by 25% of their current prices.


Our government looks at their sub brands to reduce by 25% instead of the big 3.
