Koodo, Fido add $55/10GB plans to match Virgin Plus

Virgin Plus also added a $5/mo discount for 12 months to its $55/mo and $60/mo plans

Yesterday, the Big Three flanker brands — Telus’ Koodo, Rogers’ Fido, and Bell’s Virgin Plus — rolled out new $60/mo 20GB promotional plans. At the time, Virgin also offered a $55/mo 10GB plan, and now Koodo and Fido have added matching plans.

First, let’s talk about Virgin’s plan. The Bell flanker brand lists the $55/mo 10GB plan as a limited-time offer with a $5/mo bill credit for 12 months. It’s only available for new bring-your-own-phone (BYOP) activations.

Although the website isn’t entirely clear, it looks like the $5/mo discount applies on top of the $55/mo price, which means you’ll pay $50 for 10GB for 12 months. That pricing wasn’t reflected when I tried to check out with the plan, but a sales representative confirmed that’s how it worked.

Virgin Plus plans as of July 30th, 2022

It’s worth noting that Virgin’s $60/20GB plan similarly includes a $5/mo discount for 12 months, which wasn’t listed on the plan yesterday. That makes the $60/20GB plan from Virgin a better deal than Fido or Koodo since you’ll pay $5 less for the first 12 months ($60 total savings).

Koodo plans as of July 30th, 2022

Next up, Koodo. The Telus flanker brand has offered a $55/mo 8GB plan for a while now, but it has added a $55/10GB ‘promo’ plan too (while writing this article, Koodo updated its website to remove the second $55/8GB plan).

Koodo’s 10GB plan is also a limited-time offer, only available to BYOP customers, and the plan notes that it’s the $55/8GB plan with 2GB of bonus data for 10GB total.

Fido plans as of July 30th, 2022

Finally, Rogers flanker brand Fido appears to have just changed its existing $55/8GB plan to a $55/10GB plan to match the others. The Fido website doesn’t indicate whether the plan is a limited-time offer. Moreover, if you try to get a phone on Fido’s website, the website automatically selects the $60/20GB plan, and there’s no option to choose the $55/10GB plan.

So, it looks like if you want to get either the $55/10GB or $60/20GB plans, Virgin Plus will be the best option. Although the $5/mo bill credit only lasts 12 months, that’s still a $60 savings over Koodo and Fido. However, keep an eye out as the other providers may offer their own credits to match.
