Data On Tap Inc. announces the 2021 pricing for its all-digital wireless service, dotmobile. Founding Members benefits offered to the first ten thousand members, which include subscription discounts, will be extended to anyone who creates an account before February 28th.
Wireless subscriptions at dotmobile are different from the plans offered by traditional carriers, designed to be flexible with transparent pricing. The monthly or annual subscription plan does not include data, which is purchased separately by the gigabyte and has infinite rollover.
Two subscription plans are available. The Full subscription is for the average phone user and includes unlimited talk and text from anywhere in Canada to anywhere in Canada and the US. The Basic subscription is for Canadians who primarily use over the top services, and is data-only with text messaging – voice calls are blocked (except for emergency services).
Both subscription plans use a SIM card and a Canadian phone number, which is an important part of your online identity and often used for authentication by SMS.
“The way people communicate is continuously evolving, as are the tools for protecting privacy and secure authentication. Designing a data-only plan for smartphones is a recognition of this new reality. Feedback from our members will help us shape the future of these plans, from the included features to the tools to manage them,” says Alex Bauman, CXO of Data On Tap Inc.
Data is available by the gigabyte, and once purchased it never expires – also known as Data On Tap. Users will be able to choose if they want more data to automatically be purchased when they run out, as well as set limits to how much they spend on data each calendar month.
Traditionally, Canadians have had to select a plan based on the maximum amount of data they think they will use in any given month. On the months where they use less, they still pay for the whole plan. Going over the plan limit either has punitive overage fees, or slows down your speed and limits access.
Data On Tap solves this by charging only for what you use, and by never expiring what you’ve already paid for. If it takes three months to use a gigabyte of data, that’s ok. If you use it up in 3 hours the next gigabyte costs exactly the same amount.

“Our launch as a wireless service provider is now in the hands of the CRTC. While we wait, we are making great progress with both the build of our dotmobile app and digital provider ecosystem. We are also happy that we can provide value to our founding members, the first 10k Canadians who join our member-powered project. Everyone should read their ‘phone insurance’ terms and conditions and consider cancelling it and signing up to the Bounce Screen Protection plan – you could save enough for a month of wireless service each year,” says Algis Akstinas, Founder and CEO of dotmobile™.
