Fido Forced me to leave

I have 5 lines under my account. I am with Fido for last 10years.

Yesterday @ 9.00am I called Fido to update my plan. The customer service put me on hold for 1 hour because they are busy. I disconnected after 1 hour. I called again after half an hour still they were busy. I tried another 5 times. Finally I went Fido store and disconnect my on line. I switched to Koodo with 10gb/$10.

Same day, I called Fido another three times to upgrade my another line. They didn’t pick up phone. Today ( 17/Dec) I planned to call them at 8:59am. And I called it is now 53:33 min I am listening music from Fido customer service. However, I will wait another half an hour and call Koodo to switch my plan. 

My understanding Fido customer service is good to listen music without using your data. They are now forcing me to leave. I don’t want to miss Koodo offers as Fido doesn’t let me upgrade my plan.

I'll be leaving as well... I cannot get through to anyone. Very frustrating.

You guys all realize it was busy because of the 10 gig for $60 promotion going on right?

Your live chat isn't working either. Your phone number literally just hangs up on me. Calling 611 gets through to the automated system, but then won't put my call in queue. I shouldn't have to go on social media to get ahold of a company I have an account with! You guys should extend this deal so that everyone has a chance to get it.
