Extended: We’ve Expanded Our Offerings: Introducing 3G Speed + BONUS Data

Hey Community!

 

We’re happy to announce that we’ve added 3G data options to our offerings in order to give you more choice. Our vision has always been to do wireless differently and that translates into our commitment to always offer you the most choice and flexibility in your plans.

 

You’ll now be able to build plans with either 3G or 4G LTE data speeds on Canada’s largest mobile network.

 

Along with launching new 3G data options, we're offering you bonus 3G data for a limited time when you activate on a 90-day plan. During this promotional period, we're featuring three amazing plans:

There are plenty more plan options to explore, so feel free to play around with the new calculator to find a combination that’s right for you!

 

Interested? Here’s how to score one of these deals.

First, you’ll need a SIM card. You can order one here or visit a participating Walmart or WOW! mobile boutique to purchase. Once you have your SIM card in hand, follow these easy steps:

  1.    Activate your SIM card here.
  2.    After you’ve entered your information and selected a phone number or ported over your number from another provider, you’ll be prompted to choose a plan. Select the following combination to score one of our limited time offers:
  •     90-day pass
  •     Unlimited Province-Wide Talk
  •     Unlimited Global Text
  •     Your desired data allotment:

    3 + 3GB BONUS at 3G Speed /90 days = 2GB / 30 days

    6 + 3GB BONUS at 3G Speed /90 days = 3GB / 30 days

    12 + 6GB BONUS at 3G Speed /90 days = 6GB / 30 days

  1.    Select your payment method (don’t forget to sign up for AutoPay to receive the $2 Reward / 30 days) and finalize the rest of the activation process.

Things to know

  •     This promotional bonus data offer is only for a limited time.
  •     Once an end date is communicated, it is the last day you can activate on our promotional plans. The promotion will not be honoured after the communicated end date for any SIM cards that have not been activated by the deadline. This includes SIM cards that have been purchased online and have not yet arrived or been activated.

 

What’s the difference between 3G and 4G LTE?** Good question.

3G is a great option if you mostly use data to check Facebook, respond to emails or browse the web, but you may experience a slight reduction in picture quality and some buffering when viewing videos. 4G LTE is our fastest data option. If you’re looking to do all the above, plus stream HD videos and consume dynamic content, like Snapchat or Instagram stories, without compromising on image quality or a seamless video experience, 4G LTE is our recommended data speed for you!

 

Check out this video below to better visualize the difference:

 

 

**Plans with 4G LTE data can access maximum LTE download speeds (manufacturer rated at up to 750 Mbps; expected average speeds 12-200 Mbps). Plans with 3G data may reach download speeds of up to 2.5 Mbps, with the coverage and reliability of the LTE network. Speed and signal strength may vary with your device, configuration, Internet traffic, environmental conditions, applicable network management and other factors. For a description of Public Mobile’s network management practices, please see https://www.publicmobile.ca/pdfs/Wireless_Video_Experience_Optimization.pdf. Compatible device required.

 

Are you a current Public Mobile customer?

If you’re already a customer (joined prior to the 3G launch), this change will not affect your current plan. Looking to change your current plan? No problem - use the Self Serve portal to make plan changes for your next renewal date, but keep in mind: once changes have been made, you will not be able to switch back to your current plan at a later date if it’s no longer available. View our Service Terms for more details.

 

You’ll also notice that we have removed and grandfathered the 10-day plan. We did this in order to refocus our resources and stay focused on what our customers want.

Respectfully, the new prices on the LTE plans are hot garbage. Public Mobile just lost its value.

Hi @Jeremy_M,

 

Just to be certain... I changed my plan for next billing cycle. My billing cycle changes on September 25.  Since I applied the changes today to take effect on Sept 25, for the $156 (3G) for 18GB data, I should be safe to leave it? I won't need to change the plan before the expiry date of this offer correct?

Best thing to do just set a future date for plan change on Sep 25th if you planning to make a change this way you won't get any surprises.

@thapager, that is exactly how I read it.  Same wording was used on the other promos.  Future dare befor the plan expires, you're good to go.

Re: We’ve Expanded Our Offerings: Introducing 3G Speed + BONUS Data

I know lte plan prices got real jumped up but that's how system worked I guess everyone in a business and everyone want to survive and compete with each other since all 3 big b selling 'plan on higher prices I think that's why pm jumped up their prices too. 

But 3g plans are not bad. Smiley Happy

I did notice something, and this should be a Disclaimer:

 

For those on CURRENT:

Unlim Can-US Talk+Global Txt+6GB Data

 

Current rate was $150

 

Apparantly, it looks like price jumped NOW at $210

 

IF U want to retain that $150 Rate. DO NOT CHANGE PLAN

Re: We’ve Expanded Our Offerings: Introducing 3G Speed + BONUS Data

This seems like a huge leap in the wrong direction for Public Mobile - away from the simplicity and value that it represented.  It makes it really hard to recommend to friends and family when the 3G plans are more expensive than the regular priced LTE plans that existed before today.  All those who were able to get the 12 gb promos are so lucky and those of us who joined with hopes of being offered the same promo (or something close to it) must be more than disappointed with these new offerings, especially on the heels of the Freedom customers only promo.  Smiley Sad
