Zone-based plans offered for various cities
Chatr Wireless has announced its foray into the Canadian market with unlimited talk or text service and no term contracts. The provider is offering zone-based plans in major cities, a similar strategy to that of Canadian carrier Wind Mobile.
Customers can use phones capable of operating on GSM networks. The company is offering a variety of handsets including the Nokia 1661/2680, LG GB125r, or Samsung Gravity.
Chatr will charge customers $35/month for unlimited talk time, or $45/month for unlimited talk and text service. The zone-based markets currently extend to Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, and Ottawa. Montreal and other Canadian markets are said to be on the way in the future.
