Fido phone plans: what makes them unique?

12 May 2016

Fido recently added contract phone plans to its product range, and now competes with the big guns: Bell, Telus and its parent company Rogers. 

But what makes these plans different and why should you consider Fido instead?

Variable Tab

The first and major reason to love Fido phone plans is number of tab options you have to choose from before making a purchase. 

For popular devices there are 4 tab options, each with increasing upfront handset costs. With some cheaper handset this might include a $0 upfront option, with other more expensive models the low-end might be $100 or $200. 

Choosing the different options adjusts the plan price you’ll pay each month. Pay the minimum and spread the cost over 24 months, or pay upfront and take on a cheaper plan.

With the major telcos you get only 2 options: full upfront or a single subsidized plan option. The end result is pretty much the same, but you don’t have the same flexibility and so you can’t opt for cheaper monthly plan prices, if this suits you.

What about the plans?

Generally speaking, the Fido plans are pretty competitive stacked up against the competition. There are high data plans, if you’re happy to pay for them, and you can opt for a $5 per month discount for local calls only.

Smartphone plans also come with Fido Pulse, which extend the basic plan inclusions with a couple of handy extras.

  • Free Spotify music
  • Vice Daily news
  • Free Voicemail
  • Call Display
  • Circle Call - letting you call numbers on your account for free
