Public Mobile $25/1GB, $40/5GB with unlimited Canada wide talk, International text

Deal Link:
Retailer:
Public Mobile
These deals are back! Deal is now showing up on the plan web page, but no official announcement in the community forum. Crucially, it is available on the plan selection page. Deal is available for new activations and existing customers. Existing accounts can add these plans immediately (forfeit remainder of current renewal cycle) or have change take place on next renewal.


These plans come with the typical suite of calling features, call display, voice mail, conference call, call forwarding. They are eligible for auto pay, community, loyalty and referral rewards. Please do not discuss the latter in this thread as I don't want the mods to lock the thread like last time.

This. What I have found is that the bonus data is given regardless whether auto pay is enabled or not. This is why I didn't describe it as if there is a 500MB data bonus.

Koodo migration deals yes, good ones no. The last offer was $50, which is not that great. The $35/5GB type deals isn't coming back.

For once, we have to be a little thankful to Bell, even though I know it's gross to even suggest this idea... because they didn't back down and cut the data in Lucky Mobile plans in half. It forced Public Mobile to rescind their move because they looked dumb and greedy.

I still made out with the bonus data from their butthurt "switch over from Lucky Mobile, Virgin and Bell and get 3GB bonus" promo" until they came back to their senses, so now $33 for 4.5 GBs for me and my wife.

I assume nobody is buying this for the 3G speed. So is this a hot deal because of the unlimited minutes and text?

Actually Public Mobile's mistake was good for you. If they had not followed the Chartr lead, they would not have tried to steal Bell customers with that 3GB bonus flash sale. I suppose it is time to monitor what the Chatr brand will do. If they don't respond, maybe Public Mobile could run a 3GB bonus offer targeting Chatr customers. What little competition we have in this country does work. It is just unfortunate that we don't have nearly enough.

The so called 3G speed topic has been discussed a lot in past Public Mobile hot deals threads. The data is actually throttle LTE at 3 mbits/s upload and download. If the phone is put in 3G only mode, the data is not throttled. Depending on local network conditions, speeds can be as high as 20+ mbits/s. Anyway for every day mobile use, the speed throttling isn't consequential.

Have you seen my post in the last thread about the promo in France for 100GB mobile plans for 9.99 Euros a month for 12 months, then 19.99 Euros a month? I totally disagree that we have anything anywhere remotely close to competition. We just get so used to be exploited that we begin to think it is normal.

Don't get me wrong, our cellular pricing is the worst in the entire universe! Just saying that competition does work.

No, the Lucky port in flash sale is over. There is no bonus for port in customers.
