Your new commcerial depicts a kid that is sharing his plan with the “whole school”. Can you please tell me which plan you offer and suggest I can share with such a large population?

It’s almost misleading as you advertise a plan as such and shock free data...

Can you please advise I’m highly interested in getting such a plan ... which one of your current plans in Ontario would you recommend? I want to sign up I’m a new customer.

Please advise!

The hotspot limit is defined by your device, not Koodo. If you routinely wish to share with such a sizeable population, I recommend a Koodo plan with lots of data.

Ads can embellish like that.

I'd you are serious about wanting to go with Koodo you can look at the plans currently on offer at koodomobile.com

I know how the hotspot feature works ... I would like to know exactly which plan Koodo is referencing in the commercial .. I want know which plan has “lots of data” which is recommended to do such a thing.... I get marketing being embellished but there is zero truth to that commercial ..


I don’t believe Koodo offers anything close to that amount of data nor something that would be affordable by a kid in high school.


I have always been a big fan of Koodo but I don’t believe marketing something with zero truth is the way to go.


Someone please prove me wrong.

Guys look! You guys are obviously Koodo experts .. but as someone that hasn’t been with them in a long time the commercial is misleading to me (which should be obvious as I started this thread out of that misunderstanding) ... realistically which kid in high school is going to have a plan large enough ... the whole message of the commercial does not make sense ... if he has a 1GB plan and shares as a hotspot.. how much control over what people use does he have? Zero

How would he be the coolest kid if he turns his data on and it’s used up in like 5 seconds ... ?!? The message now that I understand it correctly is ... share your data ... be cool for 5 minutes and then your data is blocked ... so you won’t pay overages... so kids watching this.. what’s the message to them?

Please help me understand ... how is that good marketing? Unless for people to be confused in to thinking your either getting a very massive data bucket that you can share with a school ... and as you guys have clarified you will get blocked and not have overages ...

It’s still misleading ...

No high school student is going to have anything but a prepaid plan in their own name in any case, since they can't legally sign a contract until they reach age of majority. The commercial is thus aimed primarily at parents, who are presumed to have at least heard the tales of thousand dollar cellphone bills that have been circulating for the better part of a decade. The point of the commercial is that if your kid decides to share his data with the entire school by making his phone an open hotspot he'll just run out of data rather than run up a huge bill in your name.

I absolutely agree a kid in high school wishing to have a phone would only be able to get prepaid ... however a high school kid is still watching these commercials and is still misleading (in my opinion) and as a parent unless I came to a forum like this still misunderstood the whole marketing aspect of it.

With your explanation I now know what it’s trying convey but still the commercial will mislead people as I still can’t justify a kid gaining popularity by sharing a limited data bucket which wouldn’t even last a few minutes sharing with a whole school. The commercial just sends the wrong message.
