Wind Mobile now offering Pay as you Go service

For anyone whose interested.

Not sure what 15 cents per minute means for text but I assume it means per text.

I'm disappointed they went with 'traditional' 30 day expiry/very large top up to get a year.
How about some innovation in the market?
If people wanted this kind of service they'd go with the other guys.
Only benefit here is long distance, a minute is a minute.

So, correct me if I'm wrong but $0.1/25KB * 1024KB/1MB = $4.096/MB of data? That is obscene -- they might want to dial that back a notch.

With AT&T in the US you can get 500MB/$25, which is 5cents/MB.

So, in all, data on Wind is 81.92 times more expensive than across the boarder? According to their add-ons page, the same amount of data would cost $95 with a voice plan. Yikes!

Pay as you go is always pricey. If you want data, get a plan.

No kidding. $10 for unlimited (up to 5GB before shaping kicks in) is WAY cheaper.

$10 a month or $100 per year. In the end, no different than what Rogers already offers. Agree with others ... nothing new here, move along.

10 cents for 25kb versus $2 for 20 MB.

The offer is sweetened now with unlimited incoming and 20c/min long distance anywhere in Canada/US , with a callback service now you get an affordable mobile for voice and SMS. Though I agree this plan is not for data.
