Chatr is expanding its unlimited talk, text and data plans at 3G speeds to now include Vancouver, Southwestern Ontario and Ottawa, giving more customers the freedom to stay connected to family and friends with one easy plan.
Already available in the Greater Toronto Area, Calgary and Edmonton since April, chatr’s unlimited zone-based plans provide customers with unlimited talk, text and data with managed 3G speed allotments without incurring overage fees.
Starting at $40/month, plans include unlimited Canada-wide talk, unlimited Canada and International text and unlimited data with a managed 3G speed allotment while within the unlimited data zones. For additional data:
- $5/month (total $45) upgrade to a total of 2GB at 3G speed
- $10/month (total $50) upgrade to a total of 4GB at 3G speed
While at 3G data speeds, customers can generally browse, email, watch videos, use social media and share large files.
Once a customer reaches their managed 3G speed allotment, they can still continue using unlimited data at a reduced speed where they will generally be able to browse and email but will notice a difference when using higher bandwidth applications such as streaming video or downloading large files. For usage status, customers can dial *225#.
While in any of the six zones, customers will continue to experience unlimited service. When out-of-zone, pay-per-use charges will apply. To check whether they are in or out of zone, customers can dial *#555#.
