I don't believe there is data sharing with fido... adding data is an option, sort of like adding call display on one line and adding voicemail on another, options that aren't shared between numbers.

Adding data is also an option on Rogers and they allow sharing. Fido and Rogers share a network, billing system, system provisioning, etc. If Rogers offers it, Fido can too. I just want to know if they are.

As far as I know, the only companies that offer any kind of plan/option sharing are the big 3. (Rogers/Bell/Telus)
So to answer the question simply, unless someone else has some information that I have not gotten in store, it's no, you cannot share your options.
Also, as a little add-on, Fido and Rogers are not exactly the same such as Bell and Solo aren't the same and Telus and Koodo. Rogers owns Fido, but that doesn't mean they can offer the same things. If they could, then there would be no reason to differentiate the two companies.

Thanks for the answer.
I am aware they are different brands and they target the two brands toward separate market segments. But, the fact is that they are completely meshed in terms of their capabilities and infrastruture (as opposed to Chatr which has a different provisioning structure and billing system). Anything that is available on Rogers can be easily made available to Fido, it is just a matter of if they are. Hence my question on data sharing.

Well, basically, I think the only reason that they WON'T do it (since they obviously can as there were shared Fido plans before) is to keep a certain distinction between the two. If they appear too similar, people will wonder why they should go to Rogers if Fido had the exact same services available, but for cheaper.
