$40/4GB Plan - getting $10/month price INCREASE!

Just got this text message from Public Mobile. They are raising my plan price by $10/month, trying to get me to switch to Koodo. Anyone else got this text? 

 

Public Mobile here. Starting March 20th, 2018 your rate plan price will increase by $10 per 30 days, making your plan $150 for 90 days. But don't worry!

Yes, I literally just got the same text message as well.

 

I thought our price plans were safe for awhile, but a 25% increase is ridiculous!

CCTS Complaints here we come!

 

For all who are interested - I just submitted a complaint to the CCTS online. 

It is VERY easy and only takes 7 minutes max.

http://www.ccts-cprst.ca/for-consumers/complaints/complaint-form/

 

Basically I wrote Telus is engaging in unethical behaviour and reducing competition in the marketplace by increasing prices 25% in an attempt to migrate prepaid users to postpaid platforms.

 

If enough people submit complains it's going to be a gongshow on Telus' end trying to deal with all of these and there will be serious repercussions.

 

Telus was granted the ability to purchase Public Mobile by the CRTC, but it is now engaging in predatory behaviour and eliminating competition which it said it would upkeep.

 

-------------------------------------------------

UPDATE

 

If you don't think you are all making an impact by filing a complaint against Public Mobile with the CCTS - well you are dead wrong.  Every single complaint counts. 

 

In 2016 the CCTS took a TOTAL of 9097 complaints. 

Only 104 of these complaints were against Public Mobile, 631 complaints were against Telus and only 263 against Koodo. 

 

My estimation is that the CCTS has received approximately 2500 complaints against Public Mobile in the last 24 hours alone.  Each and every complaint is going to have a damaging impact on the reputation of Telus. They can no longer call themselves a top-rated company in customer service. They will need a team of people too triage and address each of these complaints to the satisfaction of the CCTS and to us, the customer. 

Each complaint requires a written response and investigation from Telus/PM.

This is a terrible, terrible day for Telus. 

 

Do not stop. Keep the pressure up.  Tell local and social media channels about this. Tell others to file complaints. Every single complaint is damaging Telus right now.

Think about the statistics - 9000 total complaints against ALL companies in 2016. 

PM only had 100.  If this number increases to 4000 it is going to severely impact Telus.

 

The end result will be some form of free compensation or service for all who file complaints.  Telus may even have to pay a fine and explain why they are killing the very competition they said they would uphold in their purchase agreement of PM.

Same, will check it out later tonight. If it's legit I don't mind switching since it's basically the same plan.

 

It sure is annoying though :/

What? I suppose this is our 120/12/90 promo plan.

 

I'm putting my phone into Airplane Mode so I don't get this text. I win!

 

Just kidding. Boo.

Oh, I still have hope. It is not the promo I am on. And I haven't received a text yet... Fingers crossed.

Hey community, 

 

This is very sad news. I just want to confirm that this is a legit offer and the price on the fall promo will increase by $30. Do some calculation on how much are you saving with rewards and see if it's worth it to move to koodo or not.

@alohaya Please let us all know your current plan details. This would the first in my 3 years with PM increasing the price of a grandfathered plan.
