Only Loblaws and Walmart employees get a discount, as do reps who work at Koodo shops or their resellers like Mobile Shop, Best Buy/Future Shop, London Drugs, etc. There are no corporate or government plans.

Not true. Government employees pay the same rate as anyone else. Students, seniors and all. No discrimantion. :-)

Yet Telus and Rogers seem to have preferential plans ... Wonder if it pays to shop around on this basis. It's not because of any perceived superiority, simply a way to identify the degree of credit-worthiness of major employers. Costco looks for the same sort of "employment stability" before they let you join.

I think it's because Koodo is a flanker brand aimed at general consumers, not government employees. Robellus generally has the contracts/codes for those kinds of plans. They wouldn't give it to their sub brands.

What Jon said is very true, Koodo isn't even aimed at business or corporate users either. It's something for the everyday Canadian.
