In the market, there  are so many phone plan or internet providers. Sometimes you are lost by the numerous choices. Here is a general guide with a detailed illustration about Fizz.

The most common phone plan or internet providers are : Rogers, Bell, Vidéotron, Telus, Wind, Fido, Virgin Mobile, Koodo, Fizz, Chatr, Lucky, Sasktel, MTS, TBaytel, Primus Mike, Public, Searsconnet, Petro-Canada Mobility etc.

Among them, Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile and MTS affiliate to Bell Canada. Rogers Wireless, Fido and Chatr affiliate to Rogers Communication. Telus Mobility, Koodo and Public affiliate to Telus. Fizz affiliate to Vidéotron. 

If you really want to get a good deal, you probably need to shop around and do the comparison. But if you are looking for an ecomical phone or Internet plan, Fizz might be a good choice for the low price, stable signal and motivating referral bonus: get at least $25 for opening an account. Here I share some of my personal experience with you. 

After coming to Canada, I find that the mobile plan is kind of expensive. After using three years Fido plan, I decide to look for something else because first I have limited budget and second, I could not run out of 2G each month and it is kind of waste.

With the recommendation of my friend, I got to know two low price suppliers: Lucky and Fizz. Considering that Fizz uses the 4G network of Videotron, signals will be more stable. I finally chose Fizz.

Then I log into the website, I checked the plan: 1 G data + unlimited SMS + unlimited call, $29 tax included. Pretty good. So I did the shift from Fido to Fizz right away on the website:
