Wireless Video Experience Optimization
In order to provide the best possible experience when streaming videos on your mobile wireless device, we've implemented Wireless Video Experience Optimization. Video Experience Optimization improves video streaming by encoding files to reduce their size. As a result, you can save on data usage, videos can be loaded faster and there's less risk of buffering and fewer stalls, without noticeably reducing the image quality. Please note that the level of optimization in different video files will vary based on the degree to which the videos are already optimized, and based on the display capabilities of the device you use. Learn more. With Video Experience Optimization in place, you can continue to access the same range of Internet content, applications and services, subject only to the general rules in our standard mobility Service Terms.
How does Koodo protect my privacy?
All information that Koodo keeps with respect to you and your service, other than your name and address, is confidential. Unless you provide your express consent or unless disclosure is required under the law, your information may not be disclosed by Koodo to anyone, other than:
By "express consent," we mean:
Koodo's liability for disclosure of information contrary to these Service Terms is not limited by the limitation of liability set out above. You may inspect any Koodo records related to the provision of your service, provided that you pay Koodo's related extraordinary costs. You may request that your name and address not be included on any list provided to any other person or used by Koodo.
Why does Koodo collect my personal information?
We collect your information to:
As a Certified Internet Secure Merchant that’s approved by the top five banks, Koodo Mobile offers secure, real-time online credit card processing.
Look for the lock – it’s proof that you’re in a secure area. You’ll know you're in a secure area when you see a closed padlock icon, similar to these , or a key icon if you have an older browser. Depending on your browser, the icon will appear in one of the following areas of your browser window: the bottom right or left corner, on the address bar or in the title bar. Firefox may display an icon similar to this , which indicates that the Webstore is displaying both secure and insecure data (such as the page title) – don’t worry, the transmission of the data is completely secure.
Data encryption – if you’re using a security-enabled browser any credit card info you send is Internet Secure encrypted. Security-enabled browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.1 or higher, and Netscape version 2.0 or higher. Encrypted data is extremely difficult to read even if it’s intercepted. So using a security-enabled browser makes your online transaction even safer. Although shipping information is not encrypted on the Koodo Mobile Webstore, Internet Secure uses industry-standard technology, known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to allow for the encryption of confidential data like your name, address and credit card number.
Verified by VISA – a recent improvement to the security of online shopping. It’s how you can be sure you’re the only person using your VISA card to make online purchases. Setting up this extra layer of security is simple – it’s like using your PIN at an ATM. All you do set up a password with your financial institution and use it when shopping online.
Canadian orders and credit cards
You must use a valid Canadian credit card: Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. We do not accept International credit cards. We’ll cancel and refund any order made with one. All prices listed are in Canadian dollars. And product pricing and availability are subject to change without notice.
Ordering and shipping confirmations
Two to five business days is approximately how long it’ll take for mobile phones and accessories to be couriered to your shipping address. If your order is not available for immediate delivery we’ll notify you by email. If your item is back-ordered, shipping may take up to 10 business days.
After submitting your order, you’ll receive a confirmation email from us. This email will summarize your purchase and provide you with your order number. Please print and/or save this email - it’s your official receipt. Then when your order is shipped, you’ll receive a shipping confirmation email with the courier tracking number and instructions on how to track your order with the courier company.
Free shipping applies for any orders $30 or more (before tax). Orders less than $30 will have a $5 delivery charge applied.
About the shipping address. It’s got to be Canadian – orders with non-Canadian addresses can’t be processed. We also can’t ship to P.O. Boxes. And there should be someone at the address able to receive your order anytime between 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. To prevent theft, a signature is required for every delivery unless you specify otherwise in your shipping instructions.
All rural route addresses must include a street address and phone number. If you live in an apartment, please put your buzzer number in the shipping instructions. Also use the shipping instructions field to give us any additional delivery information (like: leave at the back door or leave without signature). The courier service will attempt to deliver three times, and will offer alternative delivery or pick-up methods if you’re unavailable. Your shipping confirmation email lists your tracking number and links to information on contacting the courier service for more details.
To ensure a reliable and traceable delivery, Koodo Mobile uses Purolator or ATS. However, neither Koodo Mobile nor the courier service are responsible for any missing or incorrect information entered on your initial order. Packages with insufficient delivery information will be returned to Koodo Mobile.
Want to talk to us?
For questions about your order email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – you’ll get a response quickly. Please include your sales order number in your email message.
If you want to call us about an order you’ve placed, contact us at 1-866-768-9300 Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm EST.
If you aren't happy with your new mobile phone, you can return or exchange it within 14 days of the purchase date. Accessories are not eligible for returns or refunds unless they’re defective. Phones purchased using the Tab may be exchanged, but if you decide to leave, your Tab will be reversed and you’ll be liable for any other charges.
Product returns for online purchases from the Koodo Mobile Webstore are not accepted at Koodo Shops or Retail partners (e.g. Future Shop). Purchases from Koodo Shops and Retail partners have their own return policy, and items purchased from them must be returned to them.
You must return your purchase in its original condition with all original packaging and parts, along with a copy of your email receipt. Once we have accepted your return, we will refund the appropriate amount to the credit card you used at the time of purchase. To return or exchange a mobile phone, contact us at our number listed below to receive a pre-paid return or exchange mailer.

Service Terms between you and Koodo
What are the Koodo Service Terms?
These Service Terms describe your wireless voice and data services and cover the use of your device and account, billing and warranty information, your privacy rights and service cancellation. As part of our commitment to putting customers first, we want to make sure that we are clear and transparent in helping you fully understand what Koodo provides. By using our services, you agree to the terms and conditions outlined below.
As you read through these Service Terms, please note that:
Can Koodo change the terms of service in my agreement?
Yes, Koodo has the right to change any of the terms that are outlined in your Agreement, except those covered by the Price Guarantee.
Before we make any changes, we will give you at least thirty days' written notice, by bill message, text message or email. The notice will include a copy of the new service term or of the new and former versions of a modified service term, the date that the change will occur and a description of your rights to cancel service (if applicable and as required by law).
What if I do not agree with the changes that Koodo makes to my Agreement?
If you do not agree with changes to your Agreement, you may cancel your service by providing a notice to Koodo within thirty days of the effective date of the change. If the change we make increases your obligation or reduces ours, cancellation fees will not apply. If you do not agree with changes related to an optional feature, you may cancel the feature without penalty.
In both cases, if you continue to use the service after the thirty days, the new service term will become effective.
Can I transfer my Agreement to someone else?
If you want to transfer your Agreement, you need Koodo’s consent in advance. You will remain responsible for the use of the service until the transfer is made.
Who is responsible for complying with the Koodo Service Terms?
On a Koodo account with multiple users, both the account owner and the actual user of the service are responsible for complying with the Service Terms.
Can any of these Service Terms be void?
It is possible for one or more of the Service Terms to be or become void, prohibited or unenforceable (for example, as a result of a new interpretation of the law). In this case, the particular service term(s) will not apply, but the remaining terms will continue to be binding for both you and Koodo.
What limits apply to my use of the Koodo service?
You can only use Koodo services for your own individual use, with compatible devices and in compliance with the law. You also agree not to:
Where will I have coverage?
Koodo service covers almost all of the populated areas in Canada and gives you access to extensive roaming coverage worldwide. Coverage areas, and the connectivity in these areas, will depend on the availability of network facilities. These are subject to change from time to time, without notice.
Can I stay connected when I travel outside of Canada?
Roaming services are available on compatible network technology and are provided when you are outside of Canada in places where Koodo has roaming agreements with other telecommunications companies. Roaming service areas may vary without notice. There may also be times when you are charged for roaming while still within Koodo coverage areas. This will happen if your device's radio signal is picked up by a cell tower located in the coverage area of another wireless service provider.
When you are roaming, you will be connected using the services of another wireless service provider. As a result, you will be responsible for all applicable charges, and are subject to the terms and conditions of the service as imposed by that other provider (these may include limitations of liability and possibly the provision of unwanted services and content). To check the network availability and rates in different countries, visit koodomobile.com/travelling. Please keep in mind that special numbers for emergency services and operator assistance may vary by country so dialling the numbers that you use in Canada may not work. It is your responsibility to look up and use country-specific numbers when roaming outside of Canada.
Will my Koodo services always work in Koodo coverage areas?
We monitor our networks to keep them running continuously. However, there are times when Koodo must temporarily suspend or restrict the service to maintain, restore or repair the network. Also, to ensure fair network access to all users, Koodo may manage network resources using methods including, but not limited to:
In addition, service failures or interruptions can occur due to events beyond Koodo’s reasonable control. These may include:
Do I own my wireless telephone number?
You have the right to take (or "port") your phone number to another Canadian telecommunications service provider. However, please note that you do not own your number. This means that if you leave Koodo and choose not to take your phone number with you we have the right to assign your number to another customer.
You also do not own any group or private direct-connect number, IP address, network equipment identifier, domain name, email address or other identifier assigned by Koodo. We may, after giving you at least thirty days' notice, change any such numbers without liability.
What do I need to know if I am on Koodo Prepaid?
Rates for prepaid service may change without notice. Prepaid service credits are valid for a fixed period of time from the day they are activated (thirty days unless another period of time is indicated on your prepaid card or receipt). Credits for pay-per-use minutes or data will carry over if you top up your account with additional service credits before the end of the service period. For prepaid base plans or boosters, any included minutes or data will not carry over. Prepaid service credits are non-refundable. After ninety days with a zero balance, your account will be automatically deactivated and after another ninety days, you will lose your number.
Do I need to pay a deposit to use my Koodo services?
We may require a security deposit because of a credit check or your payment history. If you keep your account active and current for twelve consecutive months, this deposit will be returned to you as a bill credit. If you cancel your Koodo account, we will refund the deposit, minus any amount that you may owe (which may include late payment and cancellation charges).
Koodo may apply the deposit at any time to amounts that you owe for your mobility services, under this Agreement or any other service agreement you have with us. If your deposit is used to pay an overdue account, we will send you a notice informing you of the payment. You must then replenish the deposit and we will give you ten days to do so from the date indicated on the notice.
Can I use any device with my Koodo service?
Although Koodo networks are able to support a wide range of devices, not all devices will work on our networks. Your wireless device and software must meet Koodo standards to access our service and operate properly with our service. Such standards may change from time to time at our sole discretion and you are responsible for updating your device and software as necessary to meet these standards. Koodo may also remotely update or change the software and settings on your device at any time without notice to ensure that it continues to operate properly on our service.
Who is responsible if someone else uses my account?
You are responsible for your account and for the activities of anyone who uses it. To prevent unauthorized use, you must maintain the confidentiality of the login names, passwords and other identification methods that you use to access your account.
If any person makes a claim against Koodo in connection with the use of our service or of any device on your account, you will indemnify Koodo against any loss or expense that Koodo may incur, including any judgment made against us.
How does Koodo manage user content?
The Internet can be used to spread viruses and other malicious content. Koodo has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor or log any Koodo Internet site or use of the service. This allows us to enhance operating efficiencies and to protect Koodo and its customers from spam, malicious content and other unlawful activity. If we believe any Internet capability or data accessed through our service is in violation of any of the Service Terms, we have the right to remove or block it.
To enable you to post content on the Internet using the service, you grant Koodo and Koodo's service providers a worldwide, royalty-free, unrestricted licence to use, copy, adapt, transmit, display, communicate and create compilations and derivative works from this content.
How long does Koodo keep content on my account?
Koodo may delete, without notice, messages and emails that have been stored on your account for more than thirty days. Koodo may also delete, without notice, any user content stored by or for Koodo that is not accessed in a thirty-day period and all third party content that has not been accessed for more than ninety days. Koodo is not responsible for the actions of any third party service, application or content provider.
What is included on my monthly bill?
Your bill can include charges for voice calls (including long distance), messaging, data use and purchases that you are entitled to charge to your Koodo account. Your chosen rate plans and features are billed one month in advance. All usage that exceeds the limits of your rate plan or features is billed on a subsequent bill. You may also see other fees for administrative services, such as bill reprints that you request.
The following explains what is covered under "voice calls" and "data" on your bill:
Charges for voice calls are based on the airtime used when you make and receive calls on your mobile phone. Voice airtime is calculated, for both incoming and outgoing calls, from the time the call is initiated to the time it is disconnected, including the time used to route the call through the network and any ring time. The airtime for each voice call is rounded up to the nearest minute unless your rate plan or feature states otherwise.
Long distance charges are incurred when you make voice calls from one local calling area to another and also for all calls you receive when outside your local calling area. Long distance calls may include the local minutes of your plan and may result in charges for the local airtime minutes that exceed your rate plan or features. If your device’s radio signal is picked up by a cellular tower outside of your local calling area, the call may be treated as long distance.
Koodo advertises all our data rates in megabytes. To accurately charge you for your data usage, all usage within Canada and the United States is calculated and billed by kilobytes per session (1024 KB =1 MB). When roaming outside of Canada and the United States, each data session is rounded to units of 20 kilobytes per session. Data rates and billing may vary depending on your selected rate plan and features.
Any purchases you make from a third party and charge to your Koodo account are subject to the terms and conditions imposed by that third party. Koodo only provides a means of payment and does not accept any responsibility for the product or service provided.
How are rate plans and features charged?
Recurring rate plan and feature charges are billed one month in advance, so your monthly bill will have rate plan and feature charges for the next month. If you change your rate plan or features during your billing cycle, the corresponding charges will be applied for the portion of the month during which the new rate plan or feature was active on your account. The recurring monthly charge for the next month will also appear on your bill for the new rate plan or feature.
How is extra usage charged?
Overage or pay-per-use rates apply to usage that exceeds the coverage outlined in your rate plan or features. If you make a change during your billing cycle that affects the applicable overage or pay-per-use rates, the new rate will apply from the date that you make the change.
When and how will I receive my bill?
You will receive your monthly bill either by mail or online. All amounts owing to Koodo are due on:
Your bill tells you how much to pay and when that payment must reach Koodo to avoid late payment charges.
What if I don’t pay my bill in time?
If your payment is not received by the date indicated on your bill, a late payment charge will apply. Late payment charges are two percent per month (26.82% per year) on your total unpaid amount.
What charges apply if my payment is returned and marked unpaid?
Payments returned due to insufficient or unavailable funds in your chequing account are subject to the return payment fee specified on your bill.
What if I do not understand or disagree with a charge on my bill?
To ensure that you have time to confirm that the charges on your bill are correct, we give you thirty days from the date you receive your bill to review your charges and contact Koodo with any dispute. After the thirty days, all amounts appearing on your bill are deemed to be valid.
How does billing work if I sign up for pre-authorized payments?
If you choose pre-authorized payments, we will automatically withdraw the amount owing to Koodo each month from your credit card or bank account. Koodo will not send you a notice in advance of the amount and date of the debits from your account, although you will continue to receive a bill for your records.
Do I still have to pay my bill if my device is lost or stolen?
If your device is lost or stolen, please contact Koodo immediately. You will continue to be responsible for the use of your device until you notify us. Following notification of the loss or theft, you will no longer be responsible for usage charges. However, you will remain responsible for all regular recurring charges, such as your rate plan fee.
Are there any warranties on my Koodo service?
Since wireless telecommunications are delivered by radio waves, they are subject to factors that cannot reasonably be controlled. For this reason, Koodo does not guarantee timely, secure, error-free or uninterrupted service or that you will always receive your messages or data. To the extent permitted by law, legal warranties and conditions (implied or statutory) do not apply to the service.
Are there any warranties on the device that I bought from Koodo?
Your device is subject to the manufacturer's warranty, which is included in the package that came with your device. Please review the terms of the manufacturer's warranty to understand the protection it provides and the actions that may void your warranty
What limitations apply to any claim made against Koodo?
Koodo is not responsible for:
To the fullest extent permitted by law, Koodo will not be liable to you or to any other person for any damages or expenses (including loss of profits, loss of earnings, loss of business opportunities, loss of data, economic loss or other similar loss, or punitive damages) arising out of or in connection with the use or failure of the service, whether caused by negligence or otherwise, and whether claimed in contract, tort or otherwise.
These limitations of liability extend to the benefit of third party providers of audio or audiovisual programming services delivered to your device through the service. In the case of the provision of emergency services on a mandatory basis, our liability to you, except in cases where negligence on the part of Koodo results in physical injury, death or damage to your property or premises, is limited to the greater of twenty dollars and three times the amount you would otherwise be entitled to receive as a refund for the provision of defective service under your Agreement.
None of the limitations of liability stated above apply in cases of deliberate fault, gross negligence or anti-competitive conduct on the part of Koodo or in cases of breach of contract where the breach results from our gross negligence.
If I have a term contract with Koodo, is my service automatically cancelled at the end of the service period?
No. Your service will continue on a month-to-month basis, until you notify Koodo that you wish to cancel service or renew your Agreement. The terms and conditions of your Agreement, including all rates and charges, will apply to your month-to-month service. Promotional features, offered free during your service period, will not be automatically renewed with month-to-month service.
Can I cancel my service at any time?
Yes. To cancel your service, contact Koodo with the date you want the cancellation to be effective. Cancellation fees may apply
Can I take my number to another provider?
Yes, you have the right to take or "port" your number to another Canadian telecommunications company.
Can Koodo cancel my service?
Koodo will only suspend or cancel your service if you have not complied with the terms of this Agreement or any other service agreement you have with us (or if Koodo reasonably believes that either may occur). While your service is suspended, you remain responsible for all regularly recurring charges. You will also be charged a reconnection fee as specified on your bill to reconnect a suspended service.
What charges am I responsible for when my service ends with Koodo?
If you cancel your service or if Koodo cancels it for any reason, you remain responsible for your Koodo Tab and for all amounts chargeable to your account up to the time the service is cancelled. Any recurring charges that were billed at the beginning of your billing cycle or any credit balance under five dollars will not be refunded when your service is cancelled.
What do I need to do to make a claim?
If you are a business customer, any claim, other than the collection of amounts owing to Koodo, relating to (i) your Agreement; (ii) use of the device or the service; (iii) sales materials or advertising relating to the device or the service; or (iv) relationships with third parties arising through use of the service, must be referred to private and confidential arbitration before a single arbitrator chosen by the parties. The expense of arbitration will be shared equally.
Notice to arbitrate a claim should be sent to Koodo Mobile, 200 Consilium Place, Suite 1600, Scarborough, Ontario, M1H 3J3, Attention: General Counsel. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the current rules relating to commercial arbitration in the province in which you reside. Additionally, you waive any right you may have to start or participate in any class action against Koodo and you agree to opt out of any class proceeding against Koodo.

Why is Koodo implementing Video Experience Optimization?
The radio spectrum in Canada that is needed to support data use is limited and the networks that rely on this spectrum are rapidly becoming congested. At Koodo, we want to make the best use of the spectrum available to us by ensuring fair access for all customers. As a result, we've implemented Video Experience Optimization throughout our 4G wireless network to encode streamed videos at all times. This allows them to have a smaller impact on the network with minimal impact to quality. Please note that this only affects video streaming and not any Wi-Fi usage or home Internet service.
How does it work?
Our Video Experience Optimization equipment looks at the technical characteristics of the video content that you are trying to stream as well as the type of device you're using. If the format has not already been fully optimized for delivery over a wireless network to your specific device, our equipment optimizes the file before sending it. The equipment continuously evaluates videos to determine the best balance of viewing experience and optimization. The end result is that videos load faster, without noticeably taking away from the viewing experience. You also use less data which can save you money.
What types of Internet content will be optimized?
Only Internet videos (eg. Flash and MPEG4) that are streamed on a wireless device will be optimized. Optimization doesn't apply for files that are downloaded, video conferencing, Face Time, live chat, gaming, Skype, or videos saved to your device. The level of optimization will differ depending on the video being streamed. For example, videos delivered to a device with a high resolution screen will not be optimized, in order to ensure the quality of the video remains the same. Streaming videos delivered to a device with a low/medium resolution screen will benefit most from optimization.
What types of wireless devices are optimized?
All devices connected to the Koodo 4G network will be optimized. This includes smartphones, tablets, Internet keys, and smart hubs. The level of optimization will automatically adjust based on the display capabilities of each device and the type of video being streamed. In this way, each video is delivered at the rate that the device is capable of displaying it.
Is Video Experience Optimization common in other countries?
As a response to global network data congestion, more than 500 wireless operators in the United States, Europe, and around the world have recently adopted Video Experience Optimization. User experiences with these providers show that users enjoy the benefits of optimization, including faster video loading, less buffering and stalls, lower data usage, less network congestion and no noticeable reduction in image quality.
Are there other network experience optimization methods in place for Koodo?
At this time we do not have any further optimization methods, however we continuously explore new ways to improve our network and better your experience every day.
Video Experience Optimization will be in effect as of November 31, 2012. For further information please Contact Us.
