That doesn't make sense. How do you purchase an amount of data that you can choose for a price that you can choose? So you can basically set your data price to be 0 and get all the data you want?

If you are talking about being charged for X amount of data, then that's called overages which are included in every plan.

When I was with Virgin I had an option where I purchased 100 mg bits a month for $10.00 and if over the 100 it cost me $5.00 a mg bit. I use my phone for texts and data with little to no voice. I do not want to pay for something I am not using, so going to a plan with more minute does not work for me and the higher plans offer to many voice minutes that I will never use. Therefore, I want to add to my plan a data options so I am able to use data without a surprise on my bill at the end of the month and I am over my budget.

Hi Sue,

Sounds like you're looking for a flex data plan. Though Koodo doesn't specificially offer this, the pay-per-use/additional data works similarly (basically what John was referring to).

If you don't use data, you get charged $0. If you use a bit of data, you get charged X$/Xmb (depending on your plan). I think that this is a fair practice.

Cheers,

Peter

I am not stating the client set the amounts but the company offer add ons for data without changing your plan. This works even if you have a higher plan but want more data. The only options it does not work with is an unlimited data plan.

Hi Sue,

Per my previous message, that's basically how Koodo works...

https://shop.koodomobile.com/plans/pl...

Let's say you are on the $35 dollar plan (which includes up to 50mb of data) and use 25mb of data for the month of October, you will be billed $0 for the data use.

That being said, if you decided to use 100mb of data the month of October, you would be billed $35 + $5.

Now, let's say in November, you decide to only use 35mb of data, you would be billed $0 for data use and your bill would only be $35 (i.e. your base plan never changes).

I hope this clears things up.

No I want more data with extra minutes or for some extra minutes without the extra data. Although, I do not know why they want extra minutes when it is free after a certain time. I use WiFi when out if I am near somewhere but at the beach or for a walk in the woods there is no place near. I want an option to purchase data without having to change my plan and get more than I need.
