Fido and Rogers implement new unlocking policy end of March

technologyEdward KiledjianComment

I wrote about the new unlocking policies for Rogers and Fido a couple of weeks ago and it seem the start of this new policy is almost upon us. In a tweet from FIDO, I was notified the policy would start end of March.

For those unfamiliar with the new policy, the 2 carriers will unlock any customer device for $50 after a device has been active for at least 90 days (as long as the customer’s account is in good standing).

Their PR machine says this new policy is in response to customer demand but most of us feel this is a pre-emptive move in response to the CRTC’s investigation into mobile carrier practices.
