Answered question

Will Fizz stay cheap?

As a prepaid service provider, FIZZ has no legal obligation to uphold their prices short or longterm, before or after the stabilization period.
So far, so good. But do you think that they will uphold their image as the most affordable provider even if demand increases as time goes on?
I like to think so, but do you think I am just wishful thinking?

While it’s true that as a prepaid company they have no obligation to subject their prices to be bellow any other company, we must keep in mind that the ‘raison d’être’ of FIZZ is to compete aggressively in the affordable cellphone market. Kind of doing the things that Vidéotron could not dare to do without losing money from existing customer’s revenu.
I expect Fizz to remain competitive as long as public, chatr, Fido, Koodo and virgin continue to exist as competition.
And if Fizz’ past is a good indicator of the future, so far they have kept their word quite well.

Well fizz is staying cheap for their initial customers. I received an email that I will be keeping my stabilization price since I have been loyal and my price won't revert back, as long as I don't change my plan!

About the legal obligation, that is true, but they will be losing customers if they start increasing price. They might increase for new comers, but so far it looks like as long as you are loyal, they will treat you well!

only cheap during beta, now it is stable period, so not that cheap anymore.

But compared to other "traditional" company, Fizz is already cheap enough.

However, Canada is the most expensive country for telecom service, NOT "one of", what a pity!

So far, Fizz has been rewarding loyal and faithful customers.

When demand increases as time goes on, it means Fizz is providing a good service for a decent price.

If Fizz prices are too high, potential customers will look elsewhere.

@luefier stabilization price is actually cheaper than initial price for me..

It really depends on what "cheap" meaning. If "cheap" means low price, I do not know Fizz will "stays cheap". Because I did not compare with other companies, and who knows Fizz will increase the price or not in the future. However, even Fizz has the same price like other guys, I still thing Fizz "stays cheap". Before Fizz, I have three lines with Fido. I have 2G data for each line, but only use about 1G per month per line. 1G data wasted. If I go over 2G, there is extra charge. So, we have to monitor the data usage. Now, with Fizz, I told them do not worry about the data. If they need more data, I will gift them. I do not wast any data. Thus, in this point, I think Fizz is better. Fizz makes my life easier.

If it stays cheap, it is at the cost of customer support. I am comfortable with having a lower price because I don't need customer support for my internet.

Those are all very valid points. I’m glad to see that we are all on the same wavelength.
