@Alan_K will be nice to see talk text and 5GB Data LTE SPEED 😁  for $40 


Until the competition (CHATR and Lucky) offer LTE Speeds I can't see us being offered any LTE promos.  We will have to wait until 5G is fully rolled out and the other tiers are on that then we can move the promos up to LTE.  As ever new promo seems to be a "Competitive Response"

Please don't hold your breath.  Ever since the 2016 fall promo, the deals being offered are generally "response to competition" which is somewhat unfortunate.

PM has no reason to offer cheap LTE plan because

1.  Subscribers are waiting 3 - 5 days to get help from moderator team unless the wait time is down to a few hours.

2.  PM is winning the third tier providers war with the faster 3G speed and no zone.  No point to offer more.

 @Alan_K: Again with the high data promos. How about a "competitive response " with the low dollar plans.


@z10user4Public mobile does not listen.

 

Highest bravo's in the thread and they still ignore it. https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Announcements/Changes-to-select-bonus-data-and-promot...

 

@Alan_KReally disappointed. Again. As usual. Why do the little guys voice keep getting ignored. Please give the regular users a deal next time, its always "big data" plans, where is the deals on $20-30 even a $35 for users without much data needs. This is supposed to be public mobile, "less for less" but its always "more for more" .... "more money for more data"

 

Even your bonus data in the builder is only on the highest of priced plans. 2/4/6/GB but what about the 500MB/1GB? Those don't deserve a few extra megabytes?

 

How about instead of giving 500mb if you buy 2gb 3G , or bonus 1gb if you buy 4GB 3G ... just give a % bonus to all plans that include 3G data. Such as if you buy a 1GB plan you get 250mb bonus instead of 0... or if you buy 500mb plan maybe a 125mb bonus. Something % based not only to the "higher priced" plans

The bonus is of course for high priced plans. $40, $45, $50. Not $30-35

 

 I was so excited when I saw "These offers will expire on October 15th, 2018 at 11:59 EDT. " I thought we were finally going to get something new, something refreshed, something away from "more for more" but couple days later we get the exact same thing.

@RobertQc my gut says they offer promos at higher data levels is to get people to pay more for something they might not use. If on  average people at the 4gb level say uses 3 GB then offering them 500 mb or 1gb extra and they keep the usage the same then the company makes more money and the user is happy so they can say I get x for y.

 

The low data user is likely going to use most of their alloted data, so why give them more when they could move up to the next teir of service.

 

That is why I was suggesting the 250 mg option + talk and text for 27-28$ it's an inbetween price and quantity of data between the talk and text for 25 and the 500mg for 30.  It's a good stepping stone for those talk and text plans or those that use the 1gb add-on for data.

@mimmo_LI'd say you are correct, and I like your proposed plan.

Re: Get 4.5 GB at 3G speeds for $40!

I'd say mimmo_L is entirely right. It's always about the money. The profit in this business is in the unused resources that are paid for nonetheless. No one spends 24/7 on the phone so who needs unlimited. No one writes novels multiple times via text 24/7 so who needs unlimited. And then few people use all of their paid-for data. I know I didn't when I used to have 6gb. I went over once in the several years I was paying for it. So all of those paid-for resources are the profit for these companies.

Yeah...I know...I'll never see $10 for unlimited province/unlimited texting.
