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

@z10user4, $10 unlimited text, or you mean unlimited voice and text.  if it's voice and text that's crazy cheap, and probably too cheap for a company to truly make money off of.  Don't think any company in Canada would want to offer something that cheap even if it's for a short period of time.  End of the day companies are in the business to make money, and loads of it.  If it's just for unlimited text for $10, not sure if anyone would really jump on a text only plan though.

This is all wishful thinking of course. I'm not alone in seeing all these promos for piles of data that few people use all of and thinking crap come on.

I would be fine with $10 for unlimited provincial talk and unlimited international texting. That would be a great promo. I'm just going by their offerings. If you wanted to make it only provincial texting that would be fine too. But they don't distinguish smaller areas.

That way I can get add-ons for other calling and data. Maybe even a texting add-on for maybe 1000 outgoing for $5.

These companies are making plenty of money selling unused talk, text and data.

I managed to score this plan and I'm so fricken happy!! I was paying $60 a month with Virgin Mobile's prepay service and that only gave me 1GB of data, 250 local minutes and only unlimited Canada-wide texting (MMS would cost me 0.50 per message). Now, I'm getting so much more, for so much less! 

Thank you, Public Mobile! Now, I'll never have to worry about if I can afford to keep up with my cell phone plan. Smiley Happy

Yes the 4.5gb for $40 is very competitive. It's even cheaper than Freedom Mobile while on a much stronger network. I love it Smiley Happy

I changed from my current account which is $120 / 90 days, to this one $40/ 30 days in self service, however, it says I need to add $40 + tax to my account, even though the cost works out to the same per month and i have pre paid in advance for the 90 day plan- why?

Any immediate change in plan requires you to pay the price of the new plan.  You can future date your plan change so that on your next renewal it goes to this new plan and will charge you the new amount and new term length.

Will we ever see a $35 plan, perhaps with 2.5GB of data not as a competitive response, but just to be the greatest pre-paid again? Cat Happy

I have not seen anything like this with Public Mobile in the roughly 2 years that I have been with this service.  The way this service is currently run, the best way to get an idea of what deals are coming up is to check the competition.  Public mobile is now a follower and not much of a price leader.  The closest thing within the Telus family was a migration offer to Koodo in September that was $35/5GB.  There are competitors that offer something similar.  You can send me a PM and we can discuss offline as this is not a shopping forum.

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

So if this $ 40 a month for 4.5 GB promotion is for a limited time, if I sign up am I guaranteed this offer as long as I stay??  Or does the price go up once the promotion ends??
