How about their coverage? Their idea of fair usage may not be yours.

If you live in their limited sphere of influence and don't need Canada-wide calling, roaming and customer service, go for it.

They do offer Canada-wide calling.

Have you had first-hand experience with their network?

Take another look at the Wind coverage map. See those little pink dots around Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver? That's Wind's network. They're also the only spots in Canada where you'll get that unlimited service. Anywhere else in Canada you're roaming.

And if you roam in the USA, make sure you only make long calls because short little calls will get your service suspended (from personal experience)

Truth is, Koodo will not "make you stay", Shannon.

If you can live with Wind's limitations as outlined in the posts above, GO for it!

You can always change your mind later again and come back to Koodo - but then their prices might have gone up even more, sadly...... but that is a risk you take :)

The way I like to look at wireless, is that you have 3 major parts: Price, Service, and Coverage. And for the most part, you can only ever pick the 2 things most important to you. With Wind, you don't get to chose coverage from the list. If that works for you then that's awesome, I travel around Alberta and Saskatchewan far too much to be able to get by with their coverage.

Wind's rate's are half Koodo's but you get half the service (speeds, etc) and LESS THAN half their coverage.

Your argument has no merit.
