Discount wireless carriers Wind Mobile and Mobilicity are planning to release competitive back-to-school promotional plans this week.
According to posts on the RedFlagDeals forum, Wind will offer unlimited local calling, unlimited nationwide texting, and unlimited data for just $29. Wind’s $200 WindTab applies to this deal, which is good for life. Or for $40, you can leverage up to a $500 WindTab and enjoy their voicemail+ addion.
Mobilicity, meanwhile, is offering a similar plan as Wind for $4 cheaper at $25 (with extras such as US texting and province-wide long distance)—but all handsets must be paid for in full. It will also offer a $35 plan that includes nationwide long distance and voicemail.
These promotions could launch as early as today.
UPDATE: Both carriers have now activated these deals.
“Customers asked for real, unlimited service free of hidden fees and that’s what we’re offering. After all, what’s the point of unlimited if there’s a limit,” said Mirko Rugarli, Chief Marketing Officer, WIND Mobile. “With WIND’s Back to School plan, Canadians are getting maximum value for only $29 a month, which is guaranteed as long as they stay with us. It’s a no brainer!”
