Thread Summary
***NOTE*** This is on a "3G speed" plan. That means while it's still an LTE connection (so you benefit from LTE's improved latency), it's capped to around 3 Mbps top speeds. If you switch back to 3G proper, you get uncapped HSPA speeds. This will only be noticeable to users who stream at 1080p or higher, or regularly download large files (or visit lots of high-res-image-heavy sites on the web)

Also!
No need to buy in for 90 days (unless you want the flexibility of 24GB over 90 days as opposed to 8GB over 30 days). Select 30 day and 8GB and all the same options, the price is $50

If you have read ANY of the Public Mobile threads, most (if not all) of those on *3G* plans at PM know that it is really not 3G and are quite happy with the speeds.

This deal is OK. You get a lot of data and can call the US. But the price point is higher than most want to pay or maybe do not need US calling. Especially with the recent Koodo promo offering 8GB for $40 (not to mention bill credits) people know where the bar can go.

Which Koodo promo are you referring to? Is this ongoing?

It's not on 3G, it's 3G equivalent speed (usually 3Mbps). You still get an LTE connection (if available), you're speed is just throttled.

Assuming 3Mbps throttling, it would take: (24GB * 1024)/(3Mbps / 8) = 24576MB/0.375MBps = 65536s ~= 18hours

18 hours of downloading over 3 months? Seems pretty easy IMHO, that's only 12 minutes of downloading a day.

I think you should mention that it's 3G on your title... it's kinda important.

This has been discussed ENDLESSLY every time one of these PM 3G plan threads starts up. For the majority of users, you'll never be able to tell the difference between PM's "3G" plans and full speed LTE. The only time it becomes noticeable is when you're trying to stream 1080p or higher, or downloading large files. You can still switch over to 3G proper for uncapped HSPA+ speeds (which can get you up into the 20-30 mbps range) for those tasks, but in all honesty streaming at 1080p or higher on capped data mobile plans isn't the wisest plan of action anyway. Netflix HD streaming uses up 3GB/hour, so your 8GB will only get you 2.7 hours of streaming time.

I think we had a term for such speed. The LTE lite.

All you guys hating on LTE lite. Tell me what you need on your phone that requires 3mbps or more other than tethering?
