Fizz has officially launched and although their pricing has gone up compared to what they introduced their plans at, the pricing is still reasonable.
These are the plans they are currently offering:
- $17 per month – 2 GB of data and no text messages nor minutes
- $23 per month – 1 GB of data, unlimited text messaging and unlimited calls
- $34 per month – 4 GB of data, unlimited text messaging and unlimited calls
- $45 per month – 8 GB of data, unlimited text messaging and unlimited calls
You always have the option to customize the above plan or start a plan for scratch.
One of the main differences with Fizz is that they offer Rollover Data! Any data from your plan that you don’t use this month can be rolled over and used over the next two months. Pretty good!
This week, Quebecor, the owner of Videotron, announced the beta release of their new, low-cost mobile carrier, Fizz. (Nice name!)
The carrier opened 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.
