  • Get 5 hours of data only with Fido: Fido exclusively offers its customers 5 extra hours of data every month on all voice and data plans at no extra cost. That means that there’s one hour of extra data 5 times a month to help you stay connected to what matters most whenever you need it most. The data boost is accessible from the Fido app at the tap of a button or a shake of the phone!


  • The latest phones at $0 down and 0% interest: Fido is currently promoting device deals with the Fido Payment Program. It’s a low monthly payment program spread across 24 months. When activating select phones with Voice and Data plans, Fido allows you to pay as little as $0 down (depending on the phone – offers vary). They also allow you to pay off the remainder of the device balance in equal instalments over the term of your contract (usually 24 months or 2 years). Check out the latest data plans and devices from Apple and Samsung! 


  • All Voice and Data plans come with data overage protection: Data overage fees are the bane of Canadian consumers looking for affordable options for mobile data. That’s why it’s important for us as consumers to be aware of our data needs and choose the best plan. With Data Overage Protection, that is one less thing to worry about. When you reach your data limit, your data use automatically pauses to avoid overage bills. If you want more data, topping up with Fido is easy.
