• Canada’s Little Three Carriers Fall in Line



    By "little three" I mean Fido, Koodo and Virgin. I guess that would make Chatr, Lucky and Public the tiny three? Still working on this. Anyhoo...

    A coherent strategy seems to have finally emerged from the second-tier brands of Canada's Big Three carriers: for those who can't (or won't) shell out $75/month for unlimited (10 GB) data, Fido, Koodo and Virgin each now offer slightly more affordable (or at least less expensive) BYOD options.

    Fido
    $55 for 4 GB ($13.75 per GB)
    $60 for 6 GB ($10 per GB)
    $65 for 8 GB ($8.125 per GB)

    Koodo
    $55 for 4 GB
    $60 for 6 GB
    $65 for 8 GB

    Virgin
    $55 for 4 GB
    $60 for 6 GB
    $65 for 8 GB

    According to the source below, all plans include unlimited nationwide calling plus unlimited international texting—that is, any SMS sent from or received in Canada. But, as always, it's best to check your carrier's provincial portal to confirm.

    Yes, I believe Pinzoo is the cheapest current option. I've bought two PINs from them so far and was very happy with the ordering process.
