WIND Mobile = Great Savings

WIND Mobile = Great Savings

WIND Mobile is on an expansion spree and the carrier will shortly launch its services in Edmonton and Ottawa. As the country’s fourth national wireless carrier, WIND Mobile continues to receive a good response in and around the GTA and Calgary.

As per the update from Chris Robbins on his WIND Mobile Community Blog, the stage is all set for WIND Mobile to expand its network and increase more subscribers in new as well as existing areas in the next few months. Chris adds that WIND Mobile recognizes the value of customer feedback and his team has been working round the clock on ensuring a great customer experience.

In the past, high priced US roaming tariff has been a rather weak selling point for WIND Mobile. The carrier seems to have taken note of this pricing discrepancy and now it offers US and Canada roaming at .25$ per minute. The carrier now has a ring tone which sounds more North American rather than European. Around a month back, WIND Mobile faced a lot of criticism from customers over blocked ports which prohibited users from accessing popular sites like YouTube, MSN and services like Google Talk and GPS. The carrier claimed that this was done unknowingly and as per the latest post from Chris, the WIND Mobile team is still learning about the nitty-gritty of ports.

So, what does WIND Mobile have in store for you? Is it really the most economical carrier, let’s get down to the details of ‘WIND Chat’ plan. Like most operators, WIND Mobile’s basic plan operates on a monthly fee of 15$. However, the good part is that it offers double the free air time (100 minutes) as compared to its ‘most comparable competitor’ (50 minutes). There’s no activation fee, no 1st month plan fee, no charges for call forwarding, caller ID and missed call notification. To sum it up, the fixed monthly fee comes out to be a cool $20 per month. That’s about, a one third saving over its most comparable competitor whose monthly fee comes out to be nearly $30 per month. As per WIND, you can save up to $410 on your three year contract.

If you are located in Edmonton and Ottawa, the wait is (almost) over. Get ready to get your WIND Mobile subscriptions soon.
