WIND MOBILE FREES CONSUMERS FROM INCUMBENTS' 'DEATH GRIP' ON INTERNET MARKET WITH UNLIMITED, LOW PRICE DATA

Free data stick with a $29/month plan provides REAL alternative for high-speed internet, saving the average consumer over $650 per year and allowing them to be online on the go

TORONTO, April 5 /CNW/ - Following its growing success in replacing the home phone, WIND Mobile has put the entire internet on sale with an unlimited, low cost offer with no usage fees and no contracts.

High speed Internet access is essential to most Canadians, yet they pay some of the highest fees in the developed world for service. WIND Mobile is changing that by putting the entire internet on sale. WIND is offering a mobile data stick with unlimited Internet use for $29 per month, about $50 a month less than other similar plans on the market. At $29/month, the WIND plan is priced lower than the lowest available capped plan from any of the incumbents or their flanker brands. For $30 from any other carrier, you only get 500mb and that price quickly escalates if you use the service for much more than email. Plus, WIND is offering the data stick for free (an $80 value) to customers that prepay two months of service.

"We want to liberate Canadians from the incumbent providers' 'death grip' on the internet. Today, we are putting Internet access 'on sale' with a great plan and a great offer on the WINDspeed data stick," said Ken Campbell, CEO of WIND Mobile. "A data stick is the perfect solution for people who want to stay socially connected and don't want to be confined to their home," added Campbell. "People want unlimited Internet access from home or at their office, at their favorite coffee shop, from a patio or even at a park and all at a price point they can afford."

The average consumer typically connects to the Internet at home via a wireless router or an Ethernet connection directly to their computer. By plugging into your computer or laptop like a USB stick, data sticks offer users access to the Internet anywhere. Data sticks provide flexibility, portability and accessibility - all in a compact device that's plug 'n' play compatible with many operating systems.

Consumers looking to share their Internet connection with additional computers or mobile devices at home or the office will soon be able to purchase the WINDspeed Wi-Fi Dock, a device which can turn a data stick into shareable Internet access for over 20 devices. To share the Internet with multiple devices on the go, consumers can take advantage of the WINDspeed Pocket Hotspot, which shares the wireless connection with up to five devices around you as you travel, and still get the $29 deal.
