Can you tell us what this company is called so proper research can be done?

How many minutes do you actually use in your plan?

Really? I'd love to know who this company is.

Also, threatening is not the best thing to do...

It's just the idea of threatening a provider. It really chaps my a** when people do that. I hear my friends do it all the time. I see the posts on here about "do this or I'm leaving." Nothing agains the OP as a person but maybe, oh idk, "hey, Koodo. I noticed another provider has a better offer. I really don't want to leave but I might have to as a result of the savings." Doesn't seem so agressive that way.

I agree with Starfox. This whole blackmailing thing is stupid. If you are not happy with what you are getting pack up and go somewhere else. To go through the trouble of "if you don't do this I will leave" feels like something from grade 2.

What pisses me off even more when some companies bow to these "screamers" and they end up getting a special deal. Meanwhile the ones that stuck out for years get nothing. Not a good way, in my mind, to keep someone loyal.

The term is "credit seekers"

That's a whole other topic in itself.

The company can only be WIND Mobile, both due to plan price/features and the fact that they offer Facebook Zero. I'm not aware of any plans to expand their network to Cornwall though.

Also, their $40 plan is not prepaid.

The $40 plan here is what you are referring to, right? I just want to make sure I'm looking at the right spot.

Well you can enjoy the roaming charges when you are out of your local calling area. Have fun!
yes it is WIND and yes they have promo... for 40.00 a month prepaid every second month! i was with them for over 5 years.. so yes i know.. and yes from top exec. at wind they have said they are coming to cornwall... and i was not threatening.. i was stating a fact! after all ..... if you are offered a better deal for the same thing or better from another company.. you would change too!!!

TopperCNC got this right! I always hated when I found out that Rogers gave a better deal to my neighbour because he screamed at them. Meanwhile, at one point, as customer of theirs I paid a 25% premium because I didn't. That just pissed me right off. Actually it pushed me over the edge and left.

Yep! Companies, not only carriers, need to be fair and consistent with their customers. Giving out deals or offers to screaming customers is not only a band-aid way to keep them, but also an excellent way to alienate the other ones and push them out!

I don't need special treatment. I just need the peace of mind to know I'm paying a fair price, the same fair price that the neighbour is paying too, and the other neighbour next to him as well.
