A source has confirmed that the logo posted early today is infact the logo of “the new” Fido, although colors may still change. The source also leaked one of the new price plans, $40 will get you 2000 minutes with unlimited sms.

If Rogers is relaunching the Fido brand to compete with Telus’ discount brand, Koodo Mobile, they seem to be on the right track.  See below for a quick comparison.

Koodo Mobile
$40/month (no SAF)
-300 minutes
-7pm E&W
-unlimited sms

$75/month (no SAF)
-2000 minutes
-7pm E&W
-unlimited sms

The “NEW” Fido
$40/month (no SAF&911, confirmed)
-2000 minutes
-unlimited E&W

Looks like there is some competition in the Canadian Wireless market afterall.

    Fido just changed our plan after we requested to keep our old one. Although our old plan “cost” at more $26 a month, we had a $10 bundle discount (from before they were Rogers) and the system access fee was $2.70, as well we received two features free. End cost $21.41 with taxes.. The new bill arrived today $25.00 plan with a $5.00 plan credit and a new system access fee of $6.95 and no extra features, end cost $33.24 (pro-rated not even a full month). So add two features at $6 each and now I have a bill that is over $45 so lets say more than twice as much. Lets watch those savings add up kids!
