Re: Public Mobile Retail Launch

 

Really?

 

So...

 

  • Sim cards cost more.....
  • Retail distribution has started thereby creating the need to increase Sim Card costs...
  • Support options have been reduced....
  • Price plans offer LESS and cost MORE....

Did PM a new Mangement team from Robbers?

 

I'm so disappointed to see the recent change in direction....

I think this is a good step in the right direction. Look at the distribution channel if PM is available at Wal Mart. This is huge! SIM cards now, soon hopefully prepaid vouchers etc. It means PM is going to get even bigger!

You will have more exposure to the public if the SIM cards are available at Wal Mart. So an increase in SIM cards isn't crazy.

Walmart Smiley Tongue will have many other options available... in fact some with better deals than PM now.

 

Can't expect new business with a new "Less costs More" market approach.... sorry.

Re: Public Mobile Retail Launch

I read a MobileSyrup arcitle on the weekend.  It said WOW Wireless is going to start carrying SIMs on July 21st for PublicMobile.  Is this the same as Walmart?

 

I don't shop at Walmart (I refuse greatly to do so),.  Appartently WOW is a joint operation between Telus and Rogers for the primary and secondary brands for both, plus Chatr for Rogers.

 

Edit:   Here's the link to the MobileSyrup Article

Re: Public Mobile Retail Launch

Agreed. This met a need of having the sim cards available however the only people who will need SIMS are those who lost/damaged theirs.

 

I cant see NEW users signing up to the "MORE ($$) for LESS" PM plans.

 

Take this scenario..

Customer : hi wal-mart (cell department) do you have public mobile sims?

Wal-mart : Yes $10, however the plan is $50 for 3G service, no phone, no phone support.. however I can get you onto Fido or xyz company with canada wide LTE for around the same price and potentially a free phone as well.

Customer : Forget PM, Ill go with xyz
