Question

Answer

How long will this plan be in market?

This offer is subject to change without notice. Please refer to Public Mobile’s Service Terms. Please note that the promotion will not be honoured after it has ended. This includes SIM cards that have been purchased online, are in-transit and not yet activated.

Will I keep the same plan forever? Will my plan change?

Please refer to our Terms of Service for more information about our plans.

I am an existing customer. What is the difference between changing my plan immediately and changing my plan on the next renewal date?

When changing your plan, you have 2 options: (1) change your plan immediately or (2) change on your next renewal date. We recommend changing your plan on your next renewal date so your money can go further, but ultimately the choice is yours.

To learn more about how to change your plan and other things you should consider when determining which option is best for you, check out our help article here.  

What happens if these plan becomes unavailable before my next plan renewal date?

If you choose to change your plan to one of these plans on the next renewal date and the request has been submitted successfully, you will still switch to the plan you selected even if the promotion ends before your renewal date occurs.

Why is this change being made?

The decision to introduce these rate plans was made with respect to market dynamics.

When I switched to PM last July, it was $40/4.5GB and $45/5,5GB.  I got the $45/5.5GB plan.  Then, I switched to $40/5GB plan.  Just a history of PM price movement around the plans with 4 - 5GB data for the last 9 months.

 

Looking forward to get my first anniversary reward in 3 months.

Re: New plans launching on April 23rd

The last piece of information int he spoiler really means, the other companies raised their prices, so we had to follow along to not disrupt things.

 

This is sad in my opinion.  Public Mobile has been different - now it's just another 3rd tier provider.

I thought the price has stayed like that except 1 month of promo period ($25/1gb)???

Also address the payment issue to the other people

Additional reference point: the $45 special offer included 6.5GB until it's discontinuation last night.

Competitive new pricing indeed...

Competitive response in the wrong direction.

Lucky is still offering the $25/1GB plan with automatic topup.

Re: New plans launching on April 23rd

Is there a reason why my service has been suspended when it was going fine until this morning?

Also, no moderator has answered me yet. Very very poor service. No good reason to stay with public mobile.

Re: New plans launching on April 23rd

Dont forget about the randon service suspensions, no one to help with an issue in a time matter if at all... text messages telling you to switch to koodo. unlimited text? sure there...if your data runs out so does any reliable text messaging. thank god i have wifi. having a phone is important to me. i can rest now...if i get an emergency call phone from my kids school, i know i can listen to it when it is too late.. I can be sure that public is hard at work doing as little as possible to rectify any situation.

 

*** If this is what you are looking for, this is your place... enjoy the chaos.
