What is a Monthly Data Add-on?

A Monthly Data Add-on offers you the flexibility to add more data anytime, without having to change your plan or term. It’s a great way to easily manage your changing data needs and also limit pay-per-use data overage charges. A Monthly Data Add-on can be added before, or even after, you go into overage through the Fido My Account App on your phone or on Fido.ca. The Monthly Data Add-on will be added to your account immediately, and will stay on your account every month until you wish to cancel it. You can cancel a Monthly Data Add-on anytime when you no longer need it.


*Not compatible on plans that include Data Overage Protection. Basic plans excluded.

Why did I receive a text with invitation to add more data?

This notification is sent when you have used 90% of your data and again when you have used 100% of your data. When you receive these notifications, you may want to add a Monthly Data Add-on to avoid incurring pay-per-use overage charges. You’ll also receive a similar notification when you have used 70% of a purchased Monthly Data Add-on.

Why purchase a Monthly Data Add-on instead of paying for pay-per-use data?

A Monthly Data Add-on can help you stay in control of your data and prevent pay-per-use data overage charges. You can also add more data in your current bill cycle for a set price.

Should I buy a Monthly Data Add-on or change my monthly plan?

Can I buy a Monthly Data Add-on once I am in overage?
