I have a monthly plan, the now phased out Canada-Wide Data Double 35. I don't want to lose that plan, but I do want a chunk more data while I travel to a wifi-less area for a few weeks this summer. So I am guessing extra data is the way to go.

I see there are boosters under the prepaid section. Can monthly plan users buy those data boosters too?

Nope, it's separate. Likewise, prepaid users can't get any postpaid add-ons like Five Essentials, the unlimited international packages, etc.

However, you can simply use extra data and then you'll get charged in tiers for X amount of MB, which is essentially the same thing. I wish I knew the overage rate on that plan. I think it was like around $5/250 MB or something but I'm not sure. That info is not available in Self Serve, either. Call Koodo and ask them.
