Even better deal: Don't get a PM SIM card for only $0 when you don't activate a $25/mo plan or higher. Valid from October 25th until forever.

YMMV on Walmart free SIM cards. Depends on location and rep. Not always free....

Luke warm deal, but if you need to activate in the next week, it is nice to save the extra $10.

I started Public Mobile last month. Electronic department opens at 10am even if the store opens 24hr/day.

Free SIM, $25/month first month paid right there in the store. They credited $10 to my account the 2nd day thanks to a Referral. Furthermore, $20 credit to my account on the 2nd month (this was a week's promo).

No contract thus I could change my plan to something else ($15, $25, $35) anytime I want (effective in the coming months).

The difference here is that it's advertised. When it's not, there's nothing to hold them to. This is an officially published Public Mobile promotion and specifically mentions Walmart, so they'll have a much harder time saying no. Also, since the promotion is to activate there, odds of resistance are likely lower.

When I tried to recommend Public Mobile, most people would say: "ewww, 3G speed".
Public Mobile should really advertised them as "LTE lite", and clarify that it's actually 4G LTE throttled to 3MBPS.

On these plans (except $30 1GB LTE data-only plan), it's LTE throttled to 3Mbps or full speed HSPA+ that's provided.

It should be better in Vancouver. PM uses Telus/Bell towers so generally better coverage across Canada. If you have friends who use Telus or Bell, ask them about their signal/reception. PM would offer the same reception/coverage as Telus/Bell.

This is always going tp depend on where you are, but the Telus network, on a whole, is much better than Freedom. In places where Freedom does work well, you'll probably get faster data speeds, but that's because of a speed limitation on most of Public Mobile's current plans, and not a result of a weakness in the network.
