Fido doubling data for the back to school season

According to Mobile Syrup, Canadian carrier Fido has some great deals on mobile plans for the back to school season. The publication says, “Most of the back to school plans come with an additional five extra hours of data per month through Fido Bytes, as well as Fido Xtra.”

If you have your own device you want to bring to Fido, you can “hop on” a plan for $65 a month with 6GB of data,  $75 a month for 8GB of data, $85 a month for 11GB of data, and finally $115 a month for 13GB of data. These plans are available across Canada, except Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Quebec. “Both of the prairie provinces have a 5GB for $53 deal on bring your own device plans. In Quebec the plans start at 2GB for $35 a month with unlimited minutes, and they go up to the 10GB plan for $56 a month.”

If you do not have a device to bring with you, that’s okay! These plans are available with devices as well, but of course cost more per month depending on the device you choose to purchase with the plan.

Fido’s overage rate is seven dollars per 100MB.

All back to school deals come with unlimited calling minutes, but can be substituted for 500 Canada-wide minutes in exchange for a discount of five dollars a month.
