Right now Koodo only offers up to 3GB of data on a large $95.00 plan. I'm on a plan now that I have 2 GB of data. I don't want to spent 15 dollars more for only one 1 GB of data, that doesn't work for me. I want value for my money and right now, adding more data, which is more that I GB would be more viable.

Hey Tina,

Great idea, just to let you know, Koodo is still offering the best data plans on the market. Plus, if you happen to live in MB or SK, you can get 5GB for $55.

You cannot add more data like the way that you want. If you go over your alotted amount, then you pay the overage. That's the only way to "add more data".

Well Koodo has traditionally offered stacked data overages so if you wanted more data you could just use it. What's the name of your plan, how much does it cost, and when did you get it? We'll tell you the overage.

This is why the suggestion that overages for older plans should be shown in Self Serve is a fantastic idea...

The $75 Canada Wide Data plan has 3GB of data. And every additional GB costs $10

okay then why is Saskatchen as stated above by Erwin, is he able to have a plan with 5GB for $55.00? And it seems the rest of country something different?? I'm not even going to a larger plan of $95.00 or $75.00 for only 1GB of data, again, that doesn't even make sense.

Keep into consideration Tina, Koodo implemented this tab structure so no matter what tab or price plan you're on you'll have your tab payed off in 2 years. You can thank the government for cost increase! :)

Since Koodo is a subsidiary of Telus and telus does offer buying more data, it would only make sense to offer that same incentive to its Koodo customers. But honestly, it makes no sense at all, to pay $15.00 or $25.00 dollars more for only 1 more GB of data. That's not a value. Even if Koodo was offering $95.00 for 5GB.data, then okay, at least you know that you are getting more just 3 GB.

The plan I signed up for before they offered the medium and large plans, which really needs to be looked at again. It was the 65 Plan, where I received 2 GB of data, I won't give that up for a plan that offers me less data nor will I go higher at the price of $75.00 ot $95.00 for only 1GB of data.

The new pricing was a result of the new Wireless Code of Conduct that changed the wireless industry. It is not surprising that with the elimination of 3 year contracts but customers still wanting the same subsidies that prices would increase. However I do agree the Tab Large plans are not worth it at all just for the privilege to get a Large Tab. Honestly my opinion is that if you cant afford to buy a phone out right, you shouldnt be signing up for a plan to begin with.

Also different regions of the country may have different plans and pricing due to regional competition. For example, Manitoba has MTS, Saskatchewan has Sasktel, Quebec has Videotron

Most of the newer plans of 1GB cost 10$/GB for the overage, it's much better than paying 95$ for that extra GB, specially if your plan is 60$ to begin with.
