The WINDs they are a changing at WIND Mobile - they just 'adjusted' their pricing the end of January and it looks like they are already 'adjusting' them again. At the end of 2013 WIND Mobile's customer base was up to 676,209 but they have continued to grow and by the end of the Q1 2014, their "customer base exceeds the 700,000 of active subscriber mark." To celebrate this milestone, WIND Mobility decided to add more "value" into their monthly plans - of course, as with all good things, WIND Mobile both giveth and taketh.
These new plans and prices will go into effect on April 7. Just like most of the other carriers in Canada, the cheaper $20 and $30 plans increased in price by $5, but for this extra $5, you are now eligible for Canada-wide calling on both plans - this may add value to your monthly plan, or simply $5, depending on your habits. The handset subsidiary on the new $35 a month plan will go from $100 to $150. WIND Mobile is also adding a new $60 a month plan that includes Unlimited Data, Talk, Text, in Canada and across the U.S., voicemail+, World Saver, in addition a $500 handset subsidy or service credits. Pietro Cordova, Chief Operating Officer, WIND Mobile, stated:
"We are a relatively young challenger in wireless but we've already accomplished so much. Hitting 700,000 subscribers reiterates that Canadians are looking for competition in the wireless industry and consumers trust us to bring them the very best value... Our 700,000 subscribers prove that Canadians stay with WIND Mobile because they want to, not because they have to."
Two other plans also exist, there is a $40 a month plan that allows Unlimited Local and Province Talk, with Unlimited Text Anywhere, Unlimited Data, Call Control Features, Voicemail+, and World Saver Talk & Text. They also added a $50 a month plan that adds U.S. Wide Talk to the $40 plan, so if you do quite of bit of talking to people in the U.S., the extra $10 would be worth it.
