Credit inquiry for new BYOD connection without device?

I recently got a new BYOD connection with Fido and I am seeing a credit inquiry on my report that has affected my credit score. Is it usual to have a hard inquiry just for a month to month connection without device?

Hello Randomjack,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Are you new to Fido? If you are, I believe it would be standard procedure for the credit check (see here). I understand you did not finance a device. However, they still need to ensure you are able to make the monthly payments for service as well as any additional charges (ie long-distance charges).

 

 Hope this helps 😀

 

Cheers
