What's stopping me from switching to Fido?

My current plan with Koodo is okay. I'm on an iPhone 6S and pay $65 for 1GB and 2GB Bonus (i.e. 3GB), but I'm constantly going over my limit. This doesn't include my Tab. 

But Fido offers a plan at $65 (if I bring my phone, which I would) with 4GB, all of the same standard add-ons like voicemail, Canada-wide calling, etc. PLUS Spotify Premium, 5 hours of free data, and a roaming program if I'm traveling. 

Seriously -- what does Koodo offer that keeps me here?

Koodo has that same 4GB plan (minus all of the gimicky Fido stuff). Feel free to upgrade to it.

If you find something better elsewhere then go for it, go port your number to the new carrier and it will automatically close your account with koodo and they will send you a final bill with any outstanding balance as well as any tab amount still owing.

Nothing is stopping you from switching to Fido, except for your hesitation and human nature that is resistant to change.  The wireless code and CRTC has made it so it is much easier to switch providers.

With that said, Koodo has a similar $65 no tab plan with 4GB and all the same standard add-ons and a roaming program if you are travelling.  They also offer this plan on Tab Small and Tab medium so you wont need to pay off your tab.  You can make these changes on your self serve.
Did you not see these plan options on the Koodo website?
