Unlimited data


Userlevel 1
Put 10gb high speed limit, after that is reached, cut the speed at 128 - 264k,just enough to check the email or Facebook

128-264k? No thanks! I'm ok with throttling, but not down to that speed. That's lower than Edge, isn't it? Have you tried using Facebook at that speed? It's not enough, not even close. I think a 5GB limit would be enough, then throttle down to 500k.

That's in Europe, Vodafone have it, it's OK, that will happen after you consume the 6 - 10 GB that I hope will implement here. I know is boring to wait 2 min for Facebook feed, but 10 GB should be sufficient if you don't make downloads

I figure if Koodo ever decides to give us unlimited data, it will more than likely only support up to 1 to 3 GB of high speed data and the rest will be throttled. If it's anything more than that I'd be surprised. That's only if Koodo ever offers it, only time will tell.

I'd be totally okay with that! 1GB full sped, then throttle for the next 2, then throttle to turtle speeds so you don't incur overages. [...] but overages are exactly where the money is, so...... it's a moot point, sadly 😞

Well they could offer the unlimited data but if you require more then you pay more after you reach a certain point, like Wind did before, if you want more data before it's throttled then pay an extra $10-$15 per 500 mb or 1 GB.

I can't imagine that overages are the goal for increased revenues. That is typically short term revenue with a risk of losing a Customer. What they do want you to do it increase your plan so that their ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) is higher. That comes from selling you features like Visual Voice Mail, Roaming Plans, etc.

They damn well know people won't get a higher plan, Jack. The $29 plan is proof of that. So that's why you see $7.50/50MB overages. They get their ARPU from either higher plans OR cheaper ones + overages. Have no worries, they're not losing money :oP

From most of the feedback ive heard here in Alberta, just because they have service doesn't mean YOU will have service. I know a lot of people who switched to Wind, only to switch right back because even in the cities they cover they don't have very good coverage.

Wind will never set foot in Quebec, Razvan. We have Quebecor here who, with very deep pockets, will ensure you keep paying through the roof for your wireless services. They specifically outbid everyone in the province in the 2008 auction for AWS spectrum. The purpose was to keep us wel shielded from better prices. They shook things a little last year, but since then, they have essentially become the AWS version of the Big3, with Big3 prices and Big3 cockiness.

Their coverage map shows only a few cities out West and in Ontario, otherwise if someone goes outside their city zones then they are charged for roaming as they don't have coverage outside of them, Koodo offers a better bang for your dollar as you get more service in more places, and you don't need to worry about roaming fees. Here's their coverage map, kinda sad... http://www.windmobile.ca/network-and-coverage/coverage

No roaming charges, i spoke with them on the phone, but they lack coverage, they will expand .... and will put pressure to Koodo and others

GOOD! Nothing like healthy competition 🙂 I welcome Wind in our area 😃 (I'm just frightened that I might have to postpone the welcome till 2049, sadly)

My friend had Wind. He never had service and had to switch out.

Sophia, I guess if your satisfied with making local calls and you don't travel much, you can get a good data rate from Wind, PROVIDING you are in their coverage zone,

They have same plan like Koodo, unlimited talk and text, if you are based in Ottawa and travel to Winnipeg, you can call in Vancouver... exact same plan like Koodo, the problem is that with Koodo you can speak and use Internet while you are on the road, with Wind, only where you got there 🙂
