I agree. They ought to be introducing 5GB for $36 plan. Maybe they will for back to school. I am so fed up with Koodo, I would be willing to forgive and forget the not so good times with Zoomer the first time around.

I am hoping that Lucky and PM keep the $40 5GB plan going long enough to hurt Zoomer and Chatr NAC.

Hi rodent:
Sorry about lateness of this post. Been away...
I called on May 1 and was told that the 2GB is the standard loyalty offering. Then I told the agent that I found on the internet that many people were able to upgrade it to 4GB. She then went away and came back and said she has approval to upgrade me to 4GB. Mind you, this was a week before your experience, but you could try again.
Yes, I was on the phone with the rep for a while. I told him about the 4GB plan that others were talking about on the internet and he went away... when he came back he said that option isn't available in their system.

I didn't push any further - I'll be patient and wait until they offer it again. or at least until someone else calls in and gets it.

PM isn't PM only 4G? no LTE right?
PM is LTE capped to 3 Mbps speed.
LTE low latency is great for VoIP application.
I don't want full LTE speed to eat up my monthly data quota. I have no problem with the capped speed.

What about for streaming? Like music, YouTube, Netflix? I usually watch on my lunch break because I am antisocial, so I'm wondering if theres a big difference in speed, or one that is noticeable? I have Zoomer 4GB for $36, but I get close to 4GB every month.

The internet is your friend -- YMMV according to your location:

For existing ZOOMER customer who needs home phone, I received an email they're offering it for $10/month.

So is that the end of the world? Buying phones as a package with the service is not the only way to shop. I prefer to get the two items separately. The stale phones at inflated prices offered by Zoomer isn't exactly what I would call a good deal.

It’s fine for streaming pretty much everything (just not always in HD).

It is if you're OK with committing to 2 years.

Right now I have a S9 with 1.5 years left with Telus. Unless something changes, I expect to go back to Zoomer when my contract is up, keep using the S9, and just hand down the P20 Lite (or whatever the equivalent is) to my mom who is a very light user. Then I'll use Zoomer for 2 years @ $36, which will be a nice drop from my current Telus contract.

I thought I could tolerate the two year commitment last time. Those Koodo offers were irresistible. It was Zoomer's fault too with the inelastic rules. I wanted them to give me just 1GB more data from 2GB which was what new sign ups were getting and they refused me. Crazy thing was two months after I left, they were giving 2GB extra to all customers on the $36 plan. Looking back, it was still a good move for me to jump ship. I am just trying to find a good entry point to justify coming back, now that Koodo is not longer the "phone depot" that it used to be.
