OK so I was looking at the plans and various tabs. I am under the impression that you have to have a plan worth $60 a month for a Tab large if you look at the Canada-Wide Data Plans the $60 has 500mb MORE data than the $65 TAB LARGE PLAN.

If you have to have a plan worth $65 then that doesn't count but take a look at the $75 plan in the Canada-wide Data it comes with 3GB and in the Tab Large section you only get 1GB of Data. In the Tab large you have to pay an extra $20 for the extra 2GB

Are people on the tab Large really forced to have an inferior plan?

If so for shame koodo for shame

Well the reason for this is the Tab Large plans get you a $500 subsidy.

The "regular" plans are only eligible for the Small and Medium Tabs. On the Medium Tab, you also pay a $5 Tab charge to pay off your subsidy faster. Still, like what's been pointed out, the Tab L plans economically make very little sense unless someone really hates paying money upfront for their phone.

yes

but should they not just say you have to have a $60 or $65 plan with a tab large and your contribution is $10 seriously. Just remove the tab large box entirely and have in the regular Canada wide data a line that says tab large under Tab medium and under any plan that is less then $60 or $65 have a N/A

Its not hard when you are trying to work for the customer

this is not about clearing the tab(I understand with a bigger tab you need a bigger plan) its how Koodo is offering a $75 plan with 3GB of data to people with a $300 tab and a $75 plan to people with a $500 tab that has 1/3 the DATA how can they justify this

I like Koodo I think they are one of the better providers but this is just wrong

I equate the Tab L plans to the Iphone contract plans.

Jeff does have a point. The perception is very bad given that both plans cost $75 so customers look at it and say what gives? I'm paying you the same every month why are you giving me less value? I get that tab L gives you a $500 subsidy, but you are also paying twice as much tab charge than on medium tab, so this is all about marketing and clarity. And in this case, at least in their customers' eyes they may have failed.

Thank you.

This wouldn't be a big issue if it went the other way your paying the extra tab and you get better value for your money but the fact that you get more for less and less for more is stupid.

Heck if Koodo's Tab large plans were better people might actually want them and opt for less up front cost to have access to a better plan.

Well, it's possible that they don't want too many people take those large tabs. It would explain the design. It was the same for the iphone plans on contract. Apple forced koodo to subsidize the iphone beyond the $150 they had on tab. They did, except the plans they offered suck by design. I doubt many people took it. It didn't make sense. You were better off on their non-contract plans. There maybe something similar at play here for the large tab. I cant figure what it is though. Yet. :-)
