for most of the stuff people do everyday, if you change your phone from LTE to 3G, you actually can't tell the difference. Unless you are watching video but then with the data caps we have in Canada, most people prob don't watch too much video and wait to be on wifi anyway. Then again, we shouldn't be ok with 3G, we should expect LTE from our plans. I would be down for an unlimited 3G data plan from the big carriers though. That would be an interesting offer.

I think the bottom half of OP has significant value. Price Match with other carriers

If you activate at Costco they have $10/month credits for 8 months instead of the regular $5/month credit for pre authorization.

3G data included in Zone Plans can only be used within Lucky Mobile Zones. Once you exceed the monthly 3G data included in your plan, you can continue to use data at reduced speeds at no additional charge until your next Monthly Charge Date.

I would not fall in love with Public Mobile too much. They are still Telus. Public Mobile are my main carrier now, but if they give me too much trouble, I will port out, they behave, I stay a loyal, paying customer. Simple as that.

As for the Public Mobile deal being better, it currently is not anymore. Luck Mobile currently has the best $35/$40 plan, with Canada Wide calling, and 4.5GB of data. If you need that, only Lucky Mobile can currently do it.

Public mobile give you to much trouble? Lol they are a prepaid brand and they actually bend to what their clients want ... don’t you remember the up roar when they tried to increase price / take away the plan.

A couple of days later ... no changes. Hands down one of the best if not the best value carriers out there ... especially on a 3G plan if you just want reliable / affordable service.

That is the trade off for cheap service you forgo the customer service.

I’ve had issues and messaged a forum admin and received service.

Are you messaging them directly?

There is not as much to go wrong with Public Mobile, but yeah, if things do not work, it can take a couple of days for you to reach a CSR, if they are bogged down with new promotions, which they currently seem to be. Stuck ports and stuff like that. Personally, I have had no problems. A Walmart messed up in inputing my info, and I was able to fix it myself though the web interface. The self serve tools are excellent, probably one of the best reasons to be with Public Mobile. Compare that to Koodo, where it takes an hour to reach a CSR, and their ability to help is random.

I suspect most phones get sent to the more efficient LTE bands if available, saving the 3G for phones that do not support LTE. Honestly, it is not even a topic worthy of discussion, all carriers do it. It is valid network management. And most people do not notice or even care.
Wish Rogers thought like you. They keep throwing traffic on their 3G network..

They have in zone plans and plans with no zones... its fully separated the plans by green and yellow. This $40 plan has no zones.
