Both my wife and I have Koodo plans.
She has $50 1GB and I have the $60 2GB. With our BYOD discount, our total before tax for a total of 3 GB is $99.50
If I move her up to the current promo 2GB plan at $57, that puts us at $111+tax for 4GB

Why should I not switch back to Bell and get their share plan with a combined 5GB for $110 before tax?

Am I missing something here?

Uh, because up until the end of today, Koodo was offerig the same thing. They'll probably extend it too. The data isn't shareable but you you have to pay a connection fee and purchase new sim cards at bell. Why make the switch when you could just change your plans... If you want to make your life more difficult, your prerogative

The data is shareable via hot spot.

That's not what shareable data is. Shareable data is when the data of all the lines are combined and shared between everyone. 2GB + 2GB would mean 4GB shared for the two lines. One could use 3.5GB and the other could use 500MB, just as long as they don't go over 4GB. Awesome thing eh? Lol

It's not the same thing!!!!......Bell is offering 5GB for $110 and Koodo is $114 for 4GB with the same benefits. How do you figure it's anywhere near the same thing?  That makes absolutely no sense....

As for switching, I don't plan to. Let's just get that part out of the way.  I'm not interested in Bell raising the price every 6 months and charging me underhanded fees. I'm happy to keep Koodo, but I'm very disappointed to know that I'm not getting the best deal staying with Koodo.
I certainly won't be trying to sell the Koodo idea to any new friends I meet as I did in the past.

Bill, where do you see the $110 from Bell? I see the $40 share plan, so for the 2 of you that would be $80. Plus $50 for the shared data you mentioned. That's $130 before taxes. Or am I the one who is missing something?

@Bernard,
  The second BYOD can be added for $30/month (bottom of Bell page), so I see $120 monthly, plus new SIM cards at $10 each, plus unlock fees. Could be $110 if limited local minutes are chosen for the primary phone.

@ Bernard ....Thank you Bernard for clearing up my misunderstanding of Bell's offer.  You are correct. I did not realize that it was $40 or $60 EACH plus the $50 data.  My Boo boo! Thanks again. 
@dfbutt.....Thanks for the additional info. Most of my call are LD,so that plan wouldn't be an option for us.

A community of helpers is another thing you wont get with other providers :)
