I decided to do some math. Koodo seems to believe that the new system will allow for the tabs to be cleared by the 2 year mark. The assumption I'm going with is only the rate plan with no addons and no additional overages. $500 tab $95 plan: 14.25 + 10 = 24.25 x 24 = $582($500 tab cleared in under 2 years) $75 plan: 11.25 + 10 = 21.25 x 24 = $510($500 tab cleared in under 2 years) $65 plan: 9.75 + 10 = 19.75 x 24 = $474($500 tab NOT cleared by the 2 year mark) ------------------- $300 tab $75 plan: 11.25 + 5 = 16.25 x 24 = $390($300 tab cleared in under 2 years) $60 plan: 9 + 5 = 14 x 24 = $336($300 tab cleared in under 2 years) $50 plan: 7.5 + 5 = 12.50 x 24 = $300 ($300 tab cleared by 2 years) $40 plan: 6 + 5 = 11 x 24 = $264($300 tab NOT cleared by the 2 year mark) In my opinion, this new tab system does not work. It's caused a hike in prices for rate plans and a hike in prices for the devices. In the last 48 hours, we've seen the backlash from even hardcore Koodo supporters. Sure, we can blame the Government, but the Government does not force a provider to change its pricing. The new tab system is to ensure that Koodo does not have to be forced to wipe the remainder of the tab, which for them would be a loss of money. That much is clear when you look at the numbers. The minimum plan for either of Tab L & M shows that the loss would be very minimal. I saw an idea from Topper that I agree with. Why? Because it screams Koodo. "Simple, straight forward, ballsy, etc". Price of the phone, divided by 2 years. We will call this "The Topper Effect" IE: Nexus 4 = $300 / 24 = $12.50. So $12.50 would be added to the bill on top of the rate plan. This does a few things: 1: Eliminates the need for a tab system. 2: If a customer wants to purchase a new phone during the 2 year period, the rest of what's remaining is billed out onto their next bill, or set it up for an additional Topper Effect. 3: No more confusing "tab contributions". 4: Keeps price plans low and value high. 5: Allows for fair phone pricing. Chime in on your thoughts. If we want to make a change, we need to be proactive. Koodo wants us to be proactive with our bill? Let's be proactice with getting them to change their current system. It is broken and they need to see this.
