"If you use the entire amount of data on your plan, your services including calling and text messaging will stop."

Does not sound like a good deal.

Better off jumping on zoomer

Looked at this as I'm setting up a new line this week.
Public still seems better value; starts at $15 and less with monthly discounts. Might be worth checking.

Problem for Zoomer is that it caps out at 6GB of data. This is a good choice for those needing more than 6GB of data.

EDIT: Removed incorrect information.

I don't believe this is true. Pre-paid Public Mobile, I can use my data amount, and when my data runs out, I still get voice and basic text services...

You might be right, haven't peaked past my Public Mobile data allotment before but it makes sense that it only caps the data but not kill the service outright.

Public Mobile is great if all you need is "3G speed" data. For those who want more than 3 mbps, this deal ain't bad especially if they need more than 6GB data.

Absolutely not. Not a single prepaid plan works like that in Canada. Stop spreading misinformation

I can vouch for it. Recently switched to $25 plan and accidentally switched off wifi one night while watching Youtube. The calling and texts worked fine after it.
Carpe Diem!

This is actually a pretty good deal, or at least it matches what Fido is offering. If you have a problem with this line about using all of your data, set you Android device (i assume you will be using one with this plan), to stop using data once you get to say 6.8GBs from a possible 7GB

Back in 2013/14, in the era of 3.5g, you were able to get 5gb/$50 on a few carriers like Wind, Mobilicity, and a few others. Then all of a sudden with LTE rolling out, data became a lot more expensive, so it wasn't unheard of to get only 1GB/$50 (Gosh these telcos really ripped us off), and this coincided with the decline in network quality of Wind and Mobilicity. Now we are starting to see the price of data creeping back down again (Thanks to Freedom mobile I think... for forcing down the prices). And now with more competition, we are getting more for less. Hope this trend continues, though i fear that with 5G around the corner, we might go back to the dark days of data hoarding.

Anyone still using PhoneBox ? I've been using Thunder Bay Telephone for years just buying Data Blocks but now I am looking to go on a monthly plan. I have a Rogers tower right behind me (ie. If it fell over, it might hit my house). I have terrible satellite internet with Xplornet. I was going to get a public mobile account but just realized it is only.3G.

Does PhoneBox offer 4G while on rural Rogers towers as well?

I was just looking for options on PhoneBox, especially when you don't live in the big cities.

Yep, I get 4G on "rural bands". Been using it since August and my experience is, its the exact same service as Rogers (pros and cons). Only difference is the service cutting out once data reaches cap so I cut data once I'm 250MB to cap.
