Just about 7-8 months ago, my son got his first phone and signed up for the then $35 plan with unlimited minutes, unlimited messaging and 1GB data. We are now looking for our daughter who will need a phone for college, and the same plan has increased to a whopping $65!!!! Okay, they give you 24 months of "free"2Gb data, but you're paying $30 a month extra for this, and after that, you'll continue to pay the $65...and we do NOT need 3Gb data, but need the unlimited minutes and messaging. Koodo, how is this possible???!!!  We always thought Koodo was the best, but are now looking into changing providers.

Do you happen to live in Quebec? They currently have an unlimited talk and text with 1GB of data for $35.
If not, you can still get the $10/month discount if you byod.

Prices fluctuate in the mobile market like fresh seafood prices. The good part is Koodo doesn't modify the plans you're already paying for. But if you want the fresh catch then you have to pay market prices. And sometimes that means paying more then you want too.

That being said you can always check prepaid. Those options may be better for you. Especially where data hungry children are concerned.

Yes you should always shop around.  As you can see, Fido and Virgin are similarly priced

@Heidi, just like Allan mentioned the plan you mentioned is still available for you at the same price. Maybe you were looking at something else? Look under tab medium plans under your province of residence, you will find it there.
