Re: Wishing for unlimited data

Hey @wickedgx 

        @stonechucker

For now there are no unlimited data options, but that doesn` t mean usage cannot be monitored. The 3G is of course an option to unlimited data, as is switching to a different rate plan, one with more data or better speed, for now. You may want to measure data usage on the handset and only after decide which is the best offer. Unlimited data would be, of course, ideal but the rate plans on the site is also very diverse:

Re: Wishing for unlimited data

I would pay $100 / 30days for unlimited PM plan at 3G speed. Heck - limit it to 200GB and I would still jump on that.

 

Just saying ......

Re: Wishing for unlimited data

Of course this helps nothing but in my province, SaskTel has unlimited for 60/mo (throttled after 12GB) that'd be great but I don't want to spend 60/mo.

That being said I would like more than my Fido 2gb for something even remotely competitive

Re: Wishing for unlimited data

I just went to israel where unlimited data, calls, texts etc were like $35CAN a month. It’s ridiculous what we pay here, we’re getting screwed! But as someone else commented, the top cellular companies are fighting for us to pay expensive for barely anything

Re: Wishing for unlimited data

The problem with unlimited data is that there will be a small percentage of people that will abuse the heck out of it. "Abuse" meaning they will actually cancel their home internet and use the wireless plan as their primary and only means of connecting to the internet.

 

Wind used to have unrestricted unlimited data when they first introduced it. After severe cell tower congestion, at least in my area, they changed the plans to throttle data after a set data cap. Technically it is still unlimited as the data never stops, but after the data cap, the speed drops to 2G speeds or something like that.

 

IMHO, I don't know why anyone would need unlimited data on a wireless plan. I would understand the reasoning for home internet, as some xbox/ps/wii games are upwards of 80GB per download. So what's the reasoning behind wanting unlimited data on a wireless plan?

Why shouldn't someone cancel their home internet plan and instead use their cell phone as their primary interent connection? That's the future of the internet, and the first cell phone that can offer this will put the other companies out of business, or at least force everyone to offer the same.  Just like how cell phone never had unlimited minutes in the past, or how land lines never had unlimited long distance within canada before, it only a matter of time before it all becomes unlimited and market competition forces companies to offer unlimited better pricing.

 I want unlimited talk and text plan in Canada, unlimited data $30.00 plan. Whatever company does that will get massive sales and set the trend

@Felixbthe1 I'm not sure I recommend holding your breath while you wait for that--unless of course your're a fan of turning blue and then getting very, very pale.

"Why shouldn't someone cancel their home internet plan and instead use their cell phone as their primary interent connection? That's the future of the internet..."

 

Unfortunately, that future is not here yet. That is why there is no true unlimited wireless internet and those that offer "unlimited" are throttled after a certain limit. Companies quickly realized the limits of their infrastructure (ie. Wind Mobile with their limited spectrum and limited cell towers). Maybe it will happen in the future when 5G arrives, but don't get your hopes up - wireless spectrum and cell tower counts will always be limited.
