Yak and WIND Mobile team up to offer most competitive bundle in Canada

New contract-free offering allows customers to save as much as 40% when bundling home phone, high speed Internet and mobile services.

TORONTO, March 1 /CNW/ - For a nation in love with the 'bundle', there's a new reason to talk, text and surf. Globalive's Yak and WIND Mobile have partnered to offer Canada's newest national wireless service to Yak customers, creating the most competitive and contract-free bundle in Canada.

Officially launching today in select areas in Toronto and Calgary, Yak customers will have the opportunity to add WIND Mobile services to new and existing Yak bundles, including Yak Home Phone service, Yak High Speed Internet, and Yak's long distance service. In addition, customers who port their mobile number over to WIND Mobile by March 31st will get a $150 credit towards WIND services (subject to certain restrictions). Customers can also enjoy their first month of WIND Mobile service free.

"Canadians truly cannot find a better bundle," said Anthony Lacavera, Chairman of the Globalive group of companies, including both WIND Mobile and Yak. "The combination of Yak and WIND Mobile allows us to offer the most competitive bundle offer in Canada. Our customers will be able to talk, text, surf and connect all at great low rates, free of usage based billing, activation fees, throttling and, most importantly, contracts!" The Yak brand has long been synonymous with savings and simplicity, creating the basis for a perfect partnership with its new sister company WIND Mobile, a brand built on listening to what Canadians want from their mobile provider, beginning with wirelesssoapbox.com and continuing the conversation at windmobile.ca.

"When it comes to their communications needs, Canadians want value, control, and simplicity," continued Lacavera. "We've heard loud and clear that people want a mobile experience that is free of contracts, system access fees, high prices, poor service, limited technology, and complicated billing, and we have built WIND's offering to deliver on exactly that. With the savings that Yak customers already receive, I can say this is a bundle offer that offers the most value in the industry."

Canadians can now save more by bundling any WIND Mobile voice plan with existing Yak Paks or add mobile to either Yak High Speed Internet or any Yak Home Phone plan for a double play bundle. The featured Yak Pak includes Yak Home Phone with five features and 400 long distance minutes across North America, 5 Mbps high speed Internet and WIND Mobile's "Always Shout" plan, all for only $110.90 per month.

Interested customers should contact the Yak call centre at (1-800-490-7235) to see if the offer is available in their area and to sign up. Full program details are available at www.yak.ca.
