I'm sorry but you're out of luck, Jon :( Koodo does not offer data add-ons on their postpaid plans. Your only options are to move to a plan with more data or pay the overage for the one month you need extra data :(

There are no data add-ons, a glaring omission.

It may actually be cheaper to pay the overage, but an alternative, if this works with your numbers, is to keep your current plan going till you're at about 90% of your limit, then bump the plan up one level on self serve. You will pay a bill that is prorated for time spent on the 2 segments. So if 20 days is good on the lower plan jumping to the higher plan for the last 10 days will cost you (2/3 x lower plan fee) + (1/3 higher plan fee) for the entire 30 day period.

I've done this in reverse (going from higher to lower) with no problems, can't vouch that this will work. Also, you can only change your plan once a billing cycle at no charge.
