Need Quebec plan in Ottawa. I live in Ottawa and Videotron is now offering local numbers with their 6gb plan. I called Koodo and they can't match because I'm in Ontario. Well I thought the $49 koodo plan was to compete with Videotron. Videotron is making an effort to get Ottawa clients. Howcome koodo is not trying to keep Ottawa clients?

I would have switched but I like koodo so I'm giving koodo a second chance...

The idea of bring competitors to ask for better plans is okay. However, as you put the request in a public forum, your request will inherently be turned down. The simple reason is: If Koodo give you a "second chance", other customers will ask for it also.

Im not asking for a retention plan. Im asking for their Quebec plan-which is only there to compete with videotron- to be made available in Ottawa, a city where videotron puts flyers in peoples mailboxes and provides service.

Dennis, the no1 rule of a retention plan is not telling it publicly :)) or it won't be a retention plan anymore.

But Koodo frowns on retention plans and is about being fair and open.  That no one should get a better plan because they complained.  You get what everyone else gets.  This Quebec plan seems to be a move away from this train of thought

Well, that is the idea, but in reality, like Bernard said, they need to be competitive.

If someone in Ottawa has better public deals with Videotron and leave Koodo, it is a sign for matching and making deals.

Just out of curiosity, did Vidéotron built towers in Ottawa or are the towers built in Gatineau but has them pointing to Ottawa?

Because if they are using their partner towers to offer QC plans in Ottawa, why not just have those plans available nationwide.

They had some towers in Ottawa, I read somewhere.  They properly wanted to prove that they are a part of Canada, when they had signals at the capital.
