My Telus data add-on costs me CAD 10.00/month for 100 mb of data.
My Skype plan costs me CAD 4.00/month (with a 15% discount if I pay for a year) for unlimited outgoing calls to any Canadian phone number.
My Virtufon plan costs me USD 4.95/month for a Canadian virtual local phone number with unlimited incoming minutes transferred to my Skype plan.
Since I have unlimited high-speed internet at home, I can make and receive all non-emergency calls through my Skype and Virtufon plans. I have access to Wi-Fi at many businesses, and so I need data only between destinations for the most part with my data add-on providing enough data to fill the void.
Altogether, unlimited home high-speed internet aside, I spend an average of less than 30.00/month for unlimited inbound and outbound calls.
Freedom Mobile does offer a plan with unlimited calls across Canada and massive amounts of data for 30.00/month too, and all portable to boot. However, Telus has a wider network. So by shopping around, I more or less reproduced that Freedom Mobile could provide me but on a superior network and at a slightly lower price.
