I am looking for best convenient plan for my son. He is a foreign student in Halifax. All your plans are too expensive. I use 1000 min local call, 5000 text message and 4 gb. data. I pay approx. 15 dollar. Where am I live? I live in Istanbul. Any advice for my son would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately, it is never a good idea to compare prices between countries, Armagan... it is simply impossible to get such great rates here in Canada. I bet that makes you happy to live in Turkey, which is a lovely country indeed, I visited it at least 4 or 5 times - merhaba! :)

The only advice I can give you is look at the "flanker" brands: Koodo, Virgin and Fido. Their "mother" brands Telus, Bell and Rogers respectively are a lot more expensive!

Your son should definitely look into using VOIP (Voice over IP) such as Skype, Hangouts or Fongo and try to use WiFi wherever possible. Koodo offers a 5GB plan but it is a whopping $95 per month.

Except for prepaid, no carrier will offer you a $15 plan anywhere in Canada. Good luck finding something suitable for your son!

Use this link:

Select the province of "Nova Scotia" for Halifax, type 1000 minutes and the GBs data you need. It will show the cheapest plans. Hint: Koodo is not the cheapest.

That's just how it is Canada, there's no competition here, it's an oligopoly.

oligopoly is not fair for people.

Thank you Sophia and Marco for your answers. I think I'll choose one of Koodo's plan.
