Just the other day Koodo announced that they would be releasing their $50 unlimited plan that covers usage anywhere within the nation. Because of fierce competition within the marketplace for the holiday season, companies have been slashing prices and changing plans to benefit their consumers. In order to keep up with the trend, Virgin announced today that they would be releasing their own $50 Unlimited “no zone” plan that is eerily similar to the plan that was announced by Koodo. You shouldn’t be surprised to see other companies follow suit in the coming days and offer a similar plan.
The new Solo Mobile plan that was announced will include the ability to make unlimited local and international texts as well as picture messages, and will also come with call waiting and conference calling. the competing offer by Virgin Mobile will also offering unlimited local calling, and unlimited local and international texting but the announcement made no mention of pictures messages. There will be no zone restrictions in the new plan, but you will still be charged quite a bit extra under their current roaming plane.
So far, their plan will not be compatible with unlocked iPhone 4, Blackberry’s or Android devices, which is something that they will likely have to add. The deal is obviously aimed at the lower end of the tech savvy crowd or the budget conscious consumer who only really needs unlimited texting to use their phone to its potential. With so many different mobile carriers slashing prices, it will be interesting to see if any other providers follow suit in the coming weeks and offer plans similar to those offered by Solo Mobile and Virgin Mobile.
