Can anyone share this letter (or post a copy without your personal info)?

Is there any details? Does it say what the $10 plan should include?

 

I also want to know if everyone eligible or is it by invite only.

If by invite only, its possible you have to be new immigrant or low income earner.

it by invite only and they give you a code to enter it says for eligible internet providers but do not list which provider eligible. no where on their site

@Lemon, thank you for the link.

 

This is a form of subsidized home internet.

 

@Takion, @Sigalit you can ask Fizz support to see if they allow for this.

 

However it's really up to Canadian government if they will pay the difference between your cost ($10) and what the ISP will charge ($30) for their starter package.

 

If you have received the letter, you should do the application asap. The sooner you do it, the sooner you will save.

Thank you for sharing I would love to receive 10$ discount

So since you received the letter, you will pay $10 monthly regardless of whether you choose Bell or Videotron.

 

In case you did not know, Fizz and Videotron are both owned by Quebecor.

Fizz is not one of the providers. The $10/month only gives you a 10mbps connection, with a 100gb limit. I can't imagine the uptake on this program is that high, because that sort of connection would be useless to many families. I certainly won't be using it.

@Fizzy Fizz is a separate entity from Videotron so Fizz did not opt for the program only Bell and Videotron.

@Sari I didn't say that Fizz opted in for this program. I merely mention  that are both companies are owned by Quebecor.
