Re: Get Unlimited Text and 100 mins of Talk for $15

Agreed I expect more for less from public, Chatr has a call center and thier own stores and you can buy cards and sims at a bunch of other retail locations. 

 

Chatr does have autopay bonuses and match freedom plans + other offers

 Walmart is the only retailer close to me and they refused to activate a plan for me during the flash sale last weekend, public won't do anything but if I call chatr with a problem they credit you on the spot.

 

My spouse went with Roger's new ultra low cost brand... Fizz Mobile.

Full LTE cheap plans, referal bonuses and chat support agents.  They also have data rollover and Data Gifting.

You want to match call centres too?  I accept the rewards to replace the simplicity of calling in and talking to an agent on the spot but missing unlimited incoming is something else.

 

They were obviously trying to match Chatr (which indirectly matches Freedom).  Why aren’t they doing it right??

WOW, nice plan for $13 with autopay on. This looks like a great deal for kids! I may ask some of my cousins to switch to this plan as they don't need a lot.

I have been busy over at RFD promoting the two recent deals.  I finally have a chance to try and catch up on things over here.  There is lots of interesting discussion comparing this offer and the competition.  These $15 minimalist plans target the same market segment but in different ways.  For all the weaknesses with public Mobile and those who have been here a while can produce a long list, one thing that is indisputable is they are kicking competition butt.  Chatr came out with a $15 plan first.  Based on the interest shown on RFD, it seems like nobody cares.  Within one day of release, the discussion thread for this deal is twice as long already and with 10 times the upvotes.  That's a pretty good proxy of which is the superior product.  The interest for the $25 deal is crazy!  If anyone has noticed, the self serve portal is being hammered with activity.  There's reminders of fall 2016.  Is it possible the market got it completely wrong?  I think not!  Keep up the good work Public Mobile!  How's that for a non technical perspective?

Fizz mobile is a nice start-up from Videotron. They are offering ultra-low introductory prices atm.  It's good to know what other telecoms are offering.

 

However their service is available only to residents of Quebec and Greater Ottawa area. For usage in other parts of Canada, it's considered roaming. Since it's not available Canada-wide, can't directly compare with Public Mobile. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

you failed to mention Roaming is free and on Roger's 4G LTE network. I can compare it to public as I am in Ottawa... they are going to shake things up with the cheapest LTE in Canada free data bonus and other perks and best of all Data gifting and Roll over is not offered by any other carrier.

Chatr is a PM competitor. However they have a few disadvantages:

- PM network coverage is superior to Chatr's (from personal experience, no debate here).
- Chatr has only one reward system. They have only Autopay, but without the $2 discount per cycle.
- Chatr customer service should be improved. Staff would sometimes be misinfomed and give conflicting information.

In comparison, although PM Community forum is dated, I always find the information I am looking for.

It's only free if you select the 2nd or 3rd tier of coverage.

They offer 3 tiers:

- Quebec only coverage

- Canada coverage

- Canada and U.S.

 

You cannot use the roaming service (outside of Quebec and Ottawa area) for more than 3 months, as Fizz will end your service. This is stated in their TOS.

Your info is misleading, there are no tiers with fizz.  Every option is a choice of what you want so like other plans yes you can choose province wide Quebec, Canada wide for $3 more and there Us plan is way cheaper than any Canadian Carrier.  Just sharing hoping they will strike up a more competitive market for everyone to get fairer prices.

Nice plan so far but hopefully I can choose this plan with option between unlimited text or unlimited call Smiley Wink


Unless you are a huge talker, consider adding a talk add-on for either $8/200 minutes or $15/400 minutes (which include long distance)...

Great at filling in a gap in the line-up. Nice offer!
