Hello all. I just noticed public mobile has added a $15/month plan! (I'm assuming $13/month with auto-pay)

Unlimited int'l text
+ Bonus 250 mb data with auto pay

Thread Summary
https://productioncommunity.publicmobil ... m-p/337430

Uses Minutes (official; however, individual testing result may differ.)
● Making a call
● Answering a call
● Retrieving or leaving voicemail messages
● Using call forwarding

Doesn’t Use Minutes
● Calling *611 (the IVR)
● Making or receiving calls from 911
● Using wifi calling apps when connected to Wifi

Other things to consider
This is a link for the stacking $25 referral bonus. The referral bonus requires online activation. There might not be enough time for online SIM card purchase to meet the deadline. Be careful when selecting retail partners for SIM card purchase. Walmart is notorious for not selling SIM cards without in store activation. Avoid them where possible.

There have been questions about having the a previous promo ($10 x 6 bill credit) and jumping on this deal. It is strongly recommended to wait until the entire 6 months of $10 credits have been received before considering a plan change. The conditions for continuing to receive the monthly bill credit include the need to maintain a plan with base price of $30 or more. Public Mobile offers the option to future date plan changes. Take advantage of this feature in the event that this deal is a time limited offer.

For those wishing to do a number port, it is strongly recommended that this be done as a separate step after initial activation. This precaution will avoid a potential activation problem from affecting the current service. When submitting porting information, only the current account number is required. When entering the account number, do not enter spaces or separators, just the numbers and letters. This is very important otherwise the port will fail. Customers are not allowed a second chance following a failed port. Only the moderator team can fix a failed port.

Although the discussion of the so called 3G/LTE lite data has not materialized in this thread, it is a good idea to cover the topic here to help those who may be new to the idea. Public Mobile throttles their LTE network for customers on the so called 3G speed plans. You continue to have access to the LTE network but the data speed is capped at around 3 mbits/s download and upload. Having access to the LTE network is very important because of all the coverage improvements with rollout of 700 Mhz, AWS spectrum. Also Telus has been repurposing a lot of the 3G spectrum (both 850 and 1900 Mhz) for LTE service. If higher data speed is desired, switching the phone to 3G will yield full 3G data speed without any throttling. On 3G, speeds up to 30 mbits/s are possible, 10-15 mbits/s is more typical. This data performance differs significantly from the competition (Lucky and Chatr) which restricts their customers to the 3G network only and with speed throttling to 3 mbits/s.

I was waiting for this to come out, but instead it was the 1GB plan. The competitive response has finally arrived! Thanks for posting this OP.

Anyway, with the latest lineup of promos, there is absolutely no reason for people not to choose Public Mobile over Lucky and Chatr. The biggest difference is auto pay and the LTE lite and full 3G speed data vs 3G lite.

No overages ever on any Public Mobile plans. However, if you use up all your data, it will stop working unless you purchase a data add-on.

They must have messed up with the roll out. I only see it if I select AB. Selecting ON gives me nothing. Is this the beginning of a regional pricing scheme at Public Mobile?

Edit: It is gone now. I don't see it in my self serve account . False alarm. We will have to shelve this hot deals thread until the deal actually rolls out.

It was there a few minutes ago on the Public Mobile home page as in the thread header. They're probably just updating it. https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/bc/plans
