Fido cuts Canadians slack, slashing monthly plan costs by $5 - but only in some cities

Fido, a Rogers subsidiary, slashed monthly plan costs in Montreal by $10, lowering their 2,000-minute plan to $30 and their 4,000 minute plan to $50, back in October.

Now, they've cut costs in other Canadian cities, including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, and Ottawa, as well as Winnipeg and London through its CityFido plans. The downsides? First, the cut is only by $5, not the $10 Montreal received. Second, there are still areas paying the "full" price ($40 and $60).

But I say, who actually uses Fido anyway? Plans by the thousands of minutes are quite useless in a world of fave-5's and 10's and unlimited texting options. But to each their own, I guess.
