and that's why you can't compare them to koodo/Telus/rogers, etc...
Koodo/Telus is full LTE

Public is owned by Telus but restricted to 3Mbps

Dry math is 180Mbps is 60x faster than 3Mbps . Is it not? And 180Mbps can load pages and videos much faster than 3Mbps right?

How is that not simply dry math? How does your math work? It isn't that hard right?

Not to mention she's only paying$35 a mth for 4gb Koodo plan for full speed LTE which is cheaper than slow speed public mobile. Dry math again . Much faster speed (20x-60x) and cheaper price.

3 mbps (LTE capped) is good enough for loading speed for everything but (HD) videos. But how many HD videos can u afford per few GB allotment per month?

i know that koodo is on full lte...

that's why when ppl compare koodo to lucky, I'm saying it's not a fair comparison... apples to oranges...

you can compare koodo to fido or virgin... that would be fair

when my kid is youtubing in a restaurant, i don't want to see any sort of buffering...

i haven't tried throttled lte... but i don't know many ppl that would switch from full lte to throttled lte...

Lots of clips actually. And pages load way faster

See that's the thing, if you don't watch it all the time , so imagine having to wait for the times you do? Absurd

Even on basic sites like espn there's a huge difference in how long it takes to load

OK I must admit I did not test thorougly 3G (LTE capped) speed. I used it briefly and it looked ok for my basic low-speed demands..
