[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.

Network Coverage Map

3G voice calls require UMTS Band 4 (AWS 1700/2100).
LTE bands: B66, B4, B7, B13 (B71 to come).

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).
Use the Enhanced Services Device Compatibility List as your phone guide.

Note: Apple Watch and other wearable LTE devices are not currently supported

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)
