That is how support works here at PM, not as good as other providers but that is what helps keep the price down.
No one gets automatically moved off a plan even if it was a far better deal than other remaining plans. You can keep it as long as you want. And the flip side is if better plans come out that you could switch to it is up to you to make the decision and make the move. It isn’t that everyone else got more data on the same plan but you were left with less data. There may be other factors like 30 versus 90 day plans that some wont give up because you sort of have roll over data (for 90 days) with them, or 3G versus 4G. Cell plans are constantly changing because it is SO competitive. It is up to you to review your plan and compare them every so often.
“I still think they would be smart to keep $35 plan and give it 3Gb and see if that keeps more people from switching down to the improved $30 plan.”
With Canada “supposedly” to have plans reduced by 25% I can see these plans getting a bump in data instead.
25 1 GB
30 2 Gb
35 3.5 GB
40 6 GB
50 9 GB
Remember that the only plans that the government required providers to look at improvements to are the ones in the 2-6Gb data range. But yes, if some in that range improve logically some outside the range will see adjustments as well.
That would be lovely if that happened. Currently my pensioner parents are on the $20 Province Wide calling without data and text plan (old grandfathered plan). If the current $25 Canada Wide Talk/Text and 1 GB of data dropped in price to $20 I would switch them so fast! Heck, if that $15 Unlimited Canada Wide Talk/Text with no data plan that @mimmo mentioned was available that would be ideal! They can't see the screen well enough to surf the net on my old Lumia 650 anyway (been eyeing the Nord and Pixel 4a (or a discounted 3a to replace it).
@Catherine_T I guess that's a start now try matching this
Shaw Mobile Launches with $45/25GB Unlimited Plan, Free Talk/Text
Thank you for finally offering a $30/2gb plan....its about time! Ive had my doubters in the past when encouraging members to continue to voice their opinion on what they would like to have from public mobile. Through the power of positive thinking and they say....writing it down....your goals (or wishes in this case) will come true. Time to cross it off both mine and the community's public mobile wish list. Should i add the $35/3gb plan while im there or has someone already done that ?
I'm more curious about the Shaw "By the Gig Plan"... I can't find anywhere in the terms where you are forced to buy any data. The only thing I found is "You may purchase By The Gig Data one-time passes $10 per 1GB, valid for up to 90 days" so possibly $3.33 per 30 days or it may be truly free (I doubt it highly) if you can live without data.

We didn’t make a difference in voicing our opinions. PM copied Lucky. 😞
edit: As for the $35 3GB plan, we would make more of an impact to ask Lucky to introduce this plan to their lineup. Only then PM would make this plan available to us. 😂
