I'm really glad to see PM offering all these affordable/reasonable lite plans.
Now, if PM can somehow change the fact that incoming calls directed to voicemail still using up your minutes, then it would be icing on the cake!
is this 3G or LTE data?
It is 3G data. Any 3G plan is marked as such with an orange circle in the upper right corner in the plans page:
Data that's throttled to "3G" speed (3Mbps) but delivered over LTE where available.
As opposed to ChatR's 3G connection throughout (zero LTE connection).
This is actually a $13 /month plan with auto-pay -- most seniors receiving a pension spend more money weekly just buying Tim Hortons. My aging 89 year old Mother in Law has a $55/month plan with Bell and jokes by saying "why should I budget just so the kids will have a higher inheritance?". She has a good attitude and we hope she surpases 100.
All this talk of seniors and whatnot...my mother and MIL are with Telus. They had the same pay-as-you-go (PAYG) plan (neither of my doing) Telus obsoleted the PAYG and created a $3 plan and put those customers into it. For their needs, I still can't suggest to them to change to here for even $10. Let alone this $15 one.
I would agree that customers like them coming here would be just fine with the $10 plan.
For $13 with autopay, this plan is amazing!
I recall reading numerous posts in the last month or so of people complaining about PM not taking care of existing customers. Well, this shows that PM is listening and here is our reward. It will not satisfy everyone, but if you step back and look at the market and at other providers, these last two announcements are awesome.
I forwarded both to two other friends and they already got back to me saying these were unbelievable deals (and they have family members subscribed to almost every single provider out there). I am sure they will be moving over here in the near future and will bring all their family members here.
I highly commend PM for their thoughtful specials in the last couple of days.
does the 250mb data replace the 2 dollar autopay or is it an extra bonus
Enabled auto pay for this plan gives you a total package of 100 Canada wide minutes (in &out), unlimited international text and 250MB for $13.
Edited for clarification.
