This week, Quebecor, the owner of Videotron, announced the beta release of their new, low-cost mobile carrier, Fizz. (Nice name!)
The carrier opened this week to beta testers, offering ‘extremely low rates’ of $1 and $8 during the 3 month beta period. The carrier will be leveraging the Videotron LTE network and be available to residents of Quebec and Ottawa, which is where Videotron primarily operates.
This comes amid a push from the CRTC for more affordable plans and the likes of Lucky Mobile, Public Mobile and Chatr offering competitve rates which we’ve never seen before. Fizz would line up as a competitor to these 3 carriers.
Their website currently does not provide a lot of detail besides the fact that you’ll be able to create a customized plan as per your needs.
Interesting development in the mobile carrier space, we’ll be updating this article as more details become available.
