I have a Bell PDF explaining how their rate plans are changing as of August 9th. It's called 'How Consumer Rate Plans just got Better" - I'm not sure if this is to be said with tongue firmly planted in cheek.
Anyways, it stuff we're already talking about here including:
- How new 2yr and 30 day activations and hardware upgrades should work.
- The new rate plans which include unlimited nationwide calling, text and MMS
- New share-only plans
- Promo plans for Voice and Voice and Data Lite (regular plans are Voice and Data Plus)
- How migrations from 3yr plans to 2yr plans work
- Why Bell's new plans are better than Rogers' and TELUS' new plans
For those who don't know. 3 year contracts are out now - the max contract length is 2 years. Bell is using this opportunity to sort of reset their 3 yr plans. Basically, if you have a awesome rate plan that's lower than the new plans you can keep it but if you want hardware you'll have to switch to a rate plan that's compatible with 2 year contracts (Bell calls it an 'in market plan').
The new plans have unlimited calling, text and MMS - basically because TELUS came out with it first and Bell is moving to match.
While 2 year contracts are the max there are tiers of 2 year contracts based on how much you're over-paying I mean how you spend each month.
- There's voice only
- Voice and Data Lite
- Voice and Data Plus
Plus means you're the type of big spender that Bell likes and you'll get the best subsidies on phones. Lite means you spend a little less and as such will receive a smaller subsidy. You get the idea.
