Hello, I will be coming to Quebec (Montreal) and then drive within Ontario next week and would like to stay connected to the internet during my 29 days in Canada. Some minutes/texts would be nice too, but data is the most important for us to use Whatsapp, navigation, emails etc. Does Koodo offer a pre-paid offer + simcard that I could use in a mifi router? I went through koodo website but the prepaid plans (I would be happy with the 65CAD - 8 gb offer) seemed more like a contractual offer. I am unable to reach anyone besides the automatic chat about it... Would appreciate any help and advice ... Marta

Well looking at this site: https://www.whistleout.ca/CellPhones/Guides/best-data-only-plans-canada
It gives quite a few options for mobile Internet only - but... the huge snag is none of the better options are prepaid. You'd have to go into a store, pay an activation fee, then risk getting rejected because you don't have any Canadian ID or credit built up.
I haven't found any true prepaid plan that offers data for less than $30 per GB, so... yeah... prepare to either be frugal with data usage, or spend a lot of extra $$ on just your internet :(
Oh one more thought: note that some providers are local (some cities) only - yes they are cheap, but outside their area you pay roaming fees.
