With a $350 medium type tab that will also clear in 2 years and a $200 small tab type I'd say Fido is actually better, wow how things have changed.

Jorden, their network maybe slightly inferior, but considering the Rogers/Fido subscriber base, I doubt that it's an issue.

Part of that is because they will also charge more for the exact same phone. Ace 2X: $150 with Koodo, $200 Fido, HTC Desire: $150 Koodo, $300 Fido, Nexus 5: $400 Koodo, $500 Fido. Also there is the fact that Koodo can pay off before 2 years if your using a lot, after which time any Tab charges will drop off automatically.

Above that, you also get better voicemail with Koodo (iirc VM 10 with Koodo vs VM 3 with Fido), and you get an extra hour of unlimited calling in the morning since Koodo ends the evenings and weekends at 8 am vs just about everyone else at 7 am. Plus you get a lot better customer service with Koodo than Fido.

my question was never about Koodo's better customer service, better phone prices and better voicemail, over fido. I simply asked the question as to why would they have identical plans? I thought they were competitors and one should always provide better plans than the other, if there is any competition. Unless behind closed doors, they are one Giant monopoly, then I can't say anything to that. Until then, I will ask the question.

Well, you probably just answered your own question, Nez :( We're just as unhappy as yourself, but what can we do... we're all only fellow customers.

Koodo & Fido: The impression of competition and choice, with the same collusion and price-fixing you've grown to expect ;)
