Hey John,


Those speeds look pretty good to me. Koodo doesn't limit prepaid speeds just because you're on prepaid. Keep in mind you're sharing the network with every other Telus and Bell customer so speeds will vary depending on network congestion . Keep in mind that the data used to run this speedtest comes from your available data bucket. So you may want to watch how often you run these.

That's not just Koodo being "mean". Govt says providers can't offer plans directly to anyone unless they are equipped to service them with native eqpt at least 50% of the time.

Otherwise, we'd be witnessing SaskTel plundering the Atlantic Canada market, I suppose...

Yes thanks Chad Burr for the info will have to try at different locations when the weather permits, tech support said that also the low temp in Winnipeg have a factor on reception and speed.

As for Postpaid I really don't need my monthly usage does not warrant spending $40 a month I now spend about $20 to $25 a month, I use Hangouts for calling in North America.

LOL it is true. Within one minute, 100M gone. I did the same thing by OOKLA and I didn't realize it until I checked my usage. Holly Cow! Then I uninstalled it right away.
