In what could be a response to weak sales or the impending arrival of Mobilicity to the Canadian Wireless marketplace, Wind Mobile today announced a 50% off promotion for new customers.

Under the new offer, anyone signing up for a new Wind Voice or data plan will receive 50% off for the first six months of service.

In addition, the company, which now offers service in Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton, is offering existing customers one month of free plan fees for every new customer they sign up, up to a maximum of six.

The promotion is on now through to the end of May.
