Looking for advice on data plans

I am new to IOT so my apologies if this is a basic question! I am planning to connect environmental sensors to the internet using 3G USB modems, and so I’m looking for the most affordable data plan. The modems use 850MHz, 900MHz, 1.8GHz, 1.9GHz, 2.1GHz and the sensors will be deployed in Ontario, Canada.

So far, the cheapest data-only plan I can find is from FIDO, which provides 4GB at $10/month for 1 sim card, but this is way more data than I will need for each sensor. Does anybody know of any better pay-as-you-go options, or plans that will allow sharing data across multiple sim cards? The sensors currently use about 200 MB per month, but I should be able to get this way down through optimization.

Any/all advice is welcome. Thanks!
