I'm not saying it's justified, but Google, Spotify and other vendors charge less in India and other countries vs. Canada / USA.

Similarly wireless providers in Canada/USA charge more than other countries.

What can we do about this? I DON'T KNOW.
It's because those monopolies have long been ingrained. It started with the fact that Alexander Graham Bell oinvented the telephone on this continent.

The government should mandate that plans be equal to the average of the G7.

From past similar promotions, the email confirmation did not happen until later when sometimes an email reminder is sent to the new customer. As long as you signed up, you should be fine.

Website can be finicky. Clear cache, try a different web browser or go incognito mode.

Just so you know, I did this the last time this promo came around and did not get a confirmation. Remind me on October if it applied correctly (my second month) :P I reached out to the moderator team in the Public Mobile forums and they said it should be fine. Just make sure your emails you used for both the promo and signup for public mobile are the same.

EDIT: Just checked my payment/transaction history and a credit was applied on September 17th to my account for the amount of my plan.
So, I am an example of someone who didn't get a confirmation email after signing up for the promo, but got the promotion applied to my account within the 30 days - 15 days to be exact.

Is it better to sign up and get a new number, then port in another number or to sign up and immediately port in another number?

How long does it usually take?

It doesn't really matter, it will probably take you same time. I guess the longest wait will be for having the SIM card shipped to you so it's better to buy the card in person then port a new number.

I don't see how porting at a store is any better. In fact, I believe that most people would rather do it at home.

Porting from another wireless carrier is supposed to be completed with 2.5 hours. If you choose to port later, you'll have to contact a Public Mobile moderator. Waiting for a response usually takes less than 48 hours, although sometimes it only takes a few minutes. Teh actual porting time would be the same once the request is processed.
