[teleclick] As Mobilicity schemes to take Rogers Wireless to the Competition Bureau over its new discount wireless brand, another Canadian wireless startup, Wind Mobile, is taking a different, more competitive approach.
Wind is offering a $150 credit to customers who switch from Rogers, its subsidiary Fido, or its forthcoming discount brand Chatr. The promotion will be valid until August 15, and will take the form of a $25 monthly credit for six months.
“This porting credit is in the spirit of healthy competition in the wireless market in Canada,” commented Wind chairman, Anthony Lacavera, in an emailed statement. “We welcome more competition and we’re ready for it — it is all for the good of the consumer. Bring it on.”
