Re: Limited time only: 500MB/ 30 day Bonus Data on select 3G data plans!

@chandlerparsons Yeah something to make the 500mb plans just that little bit more comfortable.

Re: Limited time only: 500MB/ 30 day Bonus Data on select 3G data plans!

Having recently switched my wife over from Rogers at $80 a month to what Public was offering at the time for $32 ($30 after auto-pay reward), namely, unlimited province wide/text and 1 GB 3G.... we've opted to switch her on next renewal to a $40 buck ($38 after auto-pay) 90 day plan with the 1500 mb bonus, which incidentally also includes Canada-wide calling on top of a very useable 7.5 gb total data.

 

The plan remains half what Rogers was charging, albeit a portion may have been device related. Still, it was funny when they called her after the switch from the retention department and she told them 'where was all the love for me before?'...

 

I'm grateful that Public Mobile exists and is competing. I often read/hear the various gripes about having just missed a promo, or having taken another plan the day before a new promo, etc.... but for me, there's always going to be another promo. That's the nature of promos. They are there to get action from potential customers... namely for people to make the switch. And once in awhile, existing customers can even make a switch for a slightly 'better' plan. My wife's new plan will net PM an extra 27%, and she'll gain some convenience of Canada-wide and 2.5 times the data in a 90 bucket which is even better.....

I'm already on a 90 days plan and paying $135, will I lose all my rewards and history when I avail of this promotion to get a better deal?

If you are on the current 12 GB plan (3G speed), then you're good to switch. It's the plan I was on, and I switched. You won't lose your rewards. Just be sure to future date the plan.

@Phil871 By the way, if you are currently on province-wide, change it to Canada-wide. It's the same price. (That's assuming that you are on the 3G plan I mentioned in the previous post.)

Thanks, I don't remember if I signed up for a 3G plan or 4G LTE originally, but I'm on a 6gb 90 days plan with Canada wide talk and text.

 

Nowhere in my profile can I find which plan I originally signed up for, 3G or 4G LTE.

The 6 GB plan would be a 4G plan if it's $135 for 90 days.

 

Have a look at the overview page when you log in to self-serve. The third section down should show your data and add-ons. If it DOESN'T state 3G, then you are on 4G LTE plan.

By the way @Phil871 if you are on the 4g plan, and still think that the 3g plan is a better deal (13.5 GB data per 90 days @3g speeds $135), you can still switch. You will keep your rewards. Just future-date your plan so you don't end up losing what you've paid for this cycle.

Thank you for the advice.

@Phil871 No problem. One other thing: If you are concerned about moving backward to 3G speeds vs. 4G, then if you don't use your data to stream 4k video, play intensive online games, then the 3G is awesome!! For browsing, checking email, posting your lastest mood on Facebook, it's plenty fast!
