In case you didn’t know, both Yak Communications and Wind Mobile are owned by the same company: Globalive. Just as you can bundle together your Telus TV with your Telus home phone, Globalive is bundling its services together too. That only makes sense.
I’ve been using the Yak service for a little while now, since it provides some great long distance rates on my cell phone. Yak also offers home phone and low-cost Internet services. With the new announcement today, you can now take your Yak and add in some Wind.
The bundles are supposed to provide you with monthly savings over subscribing to the services separately. The so-called Yak Paks can be found on their website, so feel free to browse and peruse.
To further entice you into the Globalive family, they’re offering a $150 credit toward Wind services if you port your mobile number over by the end of the month. This only works for Toronto and Calgary, for the time being, since those are the only two markets with officially up-and-running Wind networks.
“The combination of Yak and WIND Mobile allows us to offer the most competitive bundle offer in Canada,” said Globalive Chairman Anthony Lacavera. “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!”
