FAQ

Question

Answer

How long will these plans be in market?

These offers are subject to change without notice. Please refer to Public Mobile’s Service Terms. Please note that the promotion will not be honoured after it has ended. This includes SIM cards that have been purchased online, are in-transit and not yet activated.

Will I keep the same plan forever? Will my plan change?

Please refer to our Terms of Service for more information about our plans.

I am an existing customer. What is the difference between changing my plan immediately and changing my plan on the next renewal date?

When changing your plan, you have 2 options: (1) change your plan immediately or (2) change on your next renewal date. We recommend changing your plan on your next renewal date so your money can go further, but ultimately the choice is yours.

To learn more about how to change your plan and other things you should consider when determining which option is best for you, check out our help article here.  

What happens if these plans becomes unavailable before my next plan renewal date?

If you choose to change your plan to one of these plans on the next renewal date and the request has been submitted successfully, you will still switch to the plan you selected even if the promotion ends before your renewal date occurs.

On my next plan renewal date, I chose to switch to one of the following plans:

  • $30 for 1 GB at 3G speed
  • $40 for 2.5 GB at 3G speed

Now that these are being removed, what will happen?

If you have set up a plan change to one of the mentioned promotional plans at your next payment date and choose not to make any changes now, on your next renewal date you will still switch to the selected plan even if the promotion ends before your renewal date occurs.

I am currently on one of the expired plans. Will my data limit or plan price automatically update based on these changes?

No, the data limit nor the plan price will not update automatically as these are two distinct plans. That said, if you want to change to any of the new plans, you can do so in Self-Serve and the plan will change on your next renewal date.

These plans should remain as everyday low price deals and not time limited offers.

Great plans @Alan_K. love to see them back!

 

How about a $27 for an extra 500 MB on that $25 plan? 

 

I know I'm dreaming...

If you don't ask, you will never get that plan.  What if @Alan_K  says yes...

It is like buying a lottery ticket.  I am sure that you will not win without a ticket.

What you are really asking for is a $30 for 1.5GB plan which is like paying $5 more for 500 MB from the $25/1GB plan.  That is a lot of money for 500MB.  Lets use round numbers and go for $30/2GB.  The dog brand gives me 3GB full speed LTE data for $15.  That is my benchmark for assessing value.

That's more like it.  Thanks for bringing this back.

 

But TBH, these plans should not have been removed to begin with, as a "competitive response."  Here we are, back to where we were. Let's stop playing follow-the-leader, PM.
