Sorry to say that this plan is not as impressive as the recent promo plan.  $30 for 2GB.  It just makes more sense for customers.  Should have made it a permanent price plan.  

 

This $35 plan.... pay an extra $5 and get 3 GB data.  $40 plan makes more sense.  

At least make it $34 for Quebec with Auto-pay $32 considering Fizz mobile (QC provider under Videotron) has 2 gigs of full LTE, Canada wide for $32.

So the recent (August 2020) $30 for 2Gb (500Mb+500Mb with Autopay+1Gb bonus per 30 days) was really a limited time offer after all.

@David_J  is this a joke? not impressed at all 

PM - $33 for 2GB 2.5GB "3G" (with AutoPay and BYOD)

Lucky - $35 for 2GB 2.5GB "3G" (with Automatic Top-Up)

Chatr- $35 for 1.5GB 2.5GB "3G" (with Auto Pay)

Freedom - $30 $35 for 1GB plus 5GB 10GB bonus (with Auto Pay, Digital Discount code, credit card, BYOD, in-store only)

 

PM seems competitive enough for the Canadian market to me. [Even after edit to update all the offerings.]

 

PM also offers Rewards. And PM sometimes offers free gifts. Nobody else does.

 

Everybody else does offer some sort of unlimited throttled data. Worth it for some people.

 

PM has 30-day billing. Everybody else has monthly billing. So technically PM does cost a few dollars more each year, though Loyalty Rewards counteract this added cost.

 

And this $35 plan allows PM to offer $30 promo when it's the season to attract more new customers. (Though I wish they'd offer more promos in the $10 and $50+ ranges.)

That still would not make it comparable... still not LTE  😕

I would argue that PM is only marginally more competitive.... but $2 difference to lose direct phone support? That is questionable as to whether this is truly competitive. Pricing used to be more appealing... The bigger value proposition for PM is not so much the $2 AutoPay discount but long term from loyalty discount, and potential referrals.
