No, Koodo has plans with unlimited calling and text messaging but not unlimited data, however Koodo's data is Canada wide where any Canadian carriers offering unlimited data once you leave their tiny coverage area you are charged per mb of use on top of your so called unlimited plan. So they arnt really unlimited

I don't think you can equate that to meaning they aren't unlimited, they just aren't unlimited anywhere in Canada. Same with Koodo, there are areas in Canada where Koodo doesn't get coverage either. Their zones are just vastly different sizes.

However, carriers with "unlimited" data aren't really unlimited because they throttle their data after a certain point, making it functionally useless.

As tiny as the areas are I completely equate it to not being unlimited at all. Like wind in Ontario they only cover Toronto and along HWY 400 North, and as Ontario is much much bigger than that I'd say they cover like 5% of the province which makes it extremely useless if you work or live in one of those areas but not stay in that area 24 hrs a day 365 days a year as pay per use adds up extremely quick.
As far as throttling I don't find that an issue at all as they only throttle after 10gb of use unless that's dropped down since I last looked into them in my area, most ppl would never use 10gb of data in a month thus not hitting the starting point of throttling.

What are you talking about? When I was with Wind, I had coverage in Toronto, Hamilton, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, Cambridge, London, Windsor (as well as parts of Detroit), Niagara Falls, St. Catharines, and Peterborough.

Counterpoint: my roommate used to be on Wind and became roaming in Pickering. Lol

You can roam within Wind zones, It's happened to me a few times but no more often than my phone dropping signal on Koodo.

I'm not trying to promote Wind here or anything and it's not like they're without fault, but their coverage is far above what Paul said.

Thomas, you won't see, anytime in the near future at least, any company that operates on Bell, Rogers or TELUS' networks (Koodo is on TELUS) offer unlimited data. Data is where all the money is now, so nobody would be stupid enough to give unlimited data on one of the premier networks that the big 3 control.

I'm pretty sure that $160 is over several months & not up front. You're still having to be locked into a 3 year contract, which technically is now illegal.

$20 a month for 8 months. The new CRTC rules don't apply to corp. plans. I don't have a problem with 1, 2 or 3 year contracts as you never pay more than what you owe on your remaining term plus a small fee of $12.50 in Rogers case, if you ever decide to cancel early.

Some how, I doubt that it's true that Corp. plans aren't allowed to not follow the CRTC regulations.

True, I've checked with my HR dept. and the corp. contact guy from Rogers. You can also find some info on howardforums.

I think it's like how a collectively bargained agreement allows an employer to sidestep anti-trust laws.

Sorry Thomas. Strictly speaking, Koodo doesn't offer unlimited everything. It'd be nice if they offered everything unlimited, but it would be unreasonable to expect Koodo to offer unlimited gasoline, electricity or soda pop too. But you can have unlimited minutes and text.

;)
