... on their $45 and $60 plans from (500 MB to 1 GB and from 1 GB to 2 GB). When will Koodo be going to match it?

I don't see that on thier website. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. Can you post the link so we can all see the details?

lol i just posted that below.

Not too sure if Koodo will change thier plans again. They just had a promo plan of the exact same as Virgin is currently and that ended a couple weeks ago.

Koodo just had this promotion during March I believe. I was able to get the double data on my $60 plan and now have 2 GBs. Not sure if they will bring it back since it was just done.

Koodo already offered those plans. I have the 45$ double minutes/data. I don't know if they will double it once more.

Based on the pattern I'm almost convinced Koodo will match in a matter of days.

Fido has some similar plans too: http://cdn.iphoneincanada.ca/wp-conte...

Time for Koodo to react?

Koodo has already done this... It's the other two that are playing catch-up. I jumped on the $45 double data promo minutes into its release.

What we should be looking for is not something to match, but another trendsetting better deal from Koodo... only time will tell.. but at the rate their going these days, it might not be too long before we see something good.

Koodo may follow up on these deals but yes, Koodo has already done this before. Koodo is usually competitive against Fido and Virgin so I can see Koodo matching these prices.

The main difference though (except for being $4 more expensive) is that overages are $5/500MB (or $0.01/MB) on the new plan. The one you have is double the overage rate at $0.02/MB. Something to consider for heavy data users who go over a lot.
