Thanks for the weekend promo.
This plan will sell for itself. Time to refer more friends to PM.
Too bad it is new activation only. Otherwise, I will switch to this promo.
Existing customers are away neglected. Nothing new.
I have to disagree existing customers have been included in various promos in the past.
It is also very common in this industry to offer incentives for new activations/customers, ie gift cards from best buy, Costco ect. This is just the same thing just 10 over 5 months.
I signed up for email notification as well and just checked my email and nothing there. I guess it will come out on Monday morning.
It seems that it's for new activations only
It's not...seems...IT IS for new activation only!
I tried to change my plan and the option isn't there. It seems it's only for new activations.
This is mentioned in the first message post of this annoucement thread and on the publicmobile.ca homepage. Either way, this isn't a new price plan. It is a plan that has long been around with a discount that will be applied for new customer activations.
There's nothing wrong with discounts to attract new customers. Standard in many businesses and especially in wireless and telecom.
However, as long as PM insists on crippling plans like to this 3G speed, it's not competitive at it's normal price which means it needs to be discounted to attract new customers in any event.
