You guys are getting gouged unmercifully. For what I get at wind for 20 months at 45 dollars unlimited Canada wide and USA.Plus 10 gigs data. At koodo I would pay 17000 yes seventeen thousand. If I payed 7.50 for 50 megs for 20 months to equal what I get at wind. I feel sorry for you guys.

Please come to my town, which is outside a Wind Zone, and see how long you keep your wonderful unlimited plan. Once you get here, you'll come to realize unlimited is the extraction Wind makes from your bank account monthly.

You made an account just to tell us what we already know, kurt? Why do you think some of us are with Koodo? dfbutt said it already, I'll go one further: I live in the middle of BC in the boonies. The nearest Wind zone is a 7 hour's drive from us.

I'm very happy you feel sorry for us, but we have no choice.

PS if you need 10GB per month, you would be on the $94 plan and it would cost you just over $2,200 per year including overage. While still a lot of money, it is nowhere near the $17,000 you mentioned.

But, Sophia, we do have a choice, one of which is to NOT be in a large, crowded city. Not having Wind is no loss when I can feel and smell the wind.

I travel. Doesn't work just heading to the airport. Or when I'm in Winnipeg.

And if we're comparing Zone companies, I would go for Mobilicity. $29 unlimited everything

Do you work for Wind, a sales Rep trying to increase your sales perhaps?

I'll chime in, wind sold me on unlimited USA roaming then told me i made too many short calls and suspended my service. I complained to the CTSC and got a written appology from Wind. After which they rewrote their ToS to include language about short calls.

If you're in a wind zone then yay for you.

Id actually be curious to do the math on how much it would cost to have average usage while outside of a wind zone. Things add up when your in an away zone.

I was with WIND.

I feel more sorry for you. You're with WIND.

You forgot to mention your Wind unlimited data plan = 5gb/month with Fair Usage Policy, after the 5gb your speed will be limited to 256 kbps or in the worst case scenario 32 kbps.
