Update 2023/02/17 at 8:41am ET: Freedom’s $15 plan has returned after disappearing from the website a couple of days ago. However, the plan now lacks the 250MB of bonus data, offering a flat 250MB of LTE data instead of 500MB like before. Beyond that, the plan appears to be unchanged. The original story continues below.
Shaw-owned Freedom Mobile appears to have removed one of its lower-cost ‘Freedom’ Starter plans.
An update to Freedom Mobile’s website spotted by MobileSyrup saw the removal of the provider’s $15/mo 500MB plan. The plan included 250MB of LTE data on the Freedom network along with a bonus 250MB for 500MB total monthly data.
Additionally, the plan included unlimited Canada-wide calling and incoming calls, unlimited global text, picture and video messaging, and Voicemail+.
When customers leave the Freedom network and use ‘Freedom Nationwide’ on a partner network, the plan includes 100 minutes of calls to Canada, unlimited incoming calls, and unlimited texting.
The removal of the plan leaves customers with fewer low-cost options. Freedom’s plans now start at $25/mo for a ‘Freedom’ plan and $40/mo for a ‘Big Gig Unlimited’ plan. On the prepaid side, Freedom’s cheapest plan is $19/mo.
