It’s no secret that mobile plan prices in Canada are amongst the highest in the world. If you are reading this, you might have been one of those who are fed up by the expensive phone bill every month. Although there are a lot of premium smartphone plans out there offering 15GB of data or more with lower cost per GB, most Canadians use only a few GBs per month. The easiest way to save money on your plan is to pay just for the data you're going to use.


But is your cell phone plan the best one for your needs? And how do you know if you’re getting the best deal possible on your cell phone plan? To answer this question, we have compared all mobile plans in Canada and listed some of the best options for you. 


Best cellphone plans in Canada in 2020:

All plans includes unlimited call and texts

You may have noticed, even with the best options, if you don't use call and text a lot, you are essentially paying $10 to $25 per GB unless you go for larger size data plans with potential leftover data. 

But the good news is, if you have an iOS, eSIM compatible and unlocked device, you can downgrade your mobile plan to only keep call and text (about $10/month), and purchase as much or as little data you want with much lower pricing from Nomad. It is super flexible, you can buy a 1GB plan to try it out and add more data in just a few minutes if needed.

Here are the data-only plans that Nomad offers:

We just added a 10GB plan that is valid for 90 days, so you can enjoy more data with greater flexibility and not worrying about having leftover data for each month.

In a nutshell, here is why we love data plans from Nomad: 

  • Lower price per GB in Canada to help reduce fixed monthly cost
  • Flexible to use different data packages at any given point
  • Easily add more data if needed
  • 100% prepaid without hidden fees
