Public mobile and Koodo are Telus. Telus is like the big boss.

Both Public Mobile and Koodo Mobile brands are subsidaries of Telus.

Telus owns both.

Yes, all cell-phone service providers operate under multiple names to give people the false perception of choice, so telus, koodo and public mobile are owned by the same entity.

the same goes for bell, virgin, and lucky mobile. The same also goes for rogers, fido and chatr.

not really its more of a partnership, they use telus networks but its more of a partnership than ownership(although telus has a ownership stake), im sure poeple will disagree, to each his own, not everything u read s correct, wikipedia or otherwise


Public Mobile is a 100% owned subsidiary of Telus, as is Koodo.

Public Mobile used to be its own company, with its own network, and a very much desired wireless spectrum in Canada.  Telus bought them out, kept the brand going, and now as mentioned above, is a sub brand of Telus.

 

Fido too, originally was a separate company from Rogers, as was Chatr, and Mobilcity.

 

I wish there was an option like Ting in the US here.  Funny thing about Ting, created by a Canadian who wasn’t allowed to open an MVNO in Canada.

 

Thank-you CRTC for allowing a triopoly to exist in Canada.

 

The last statement is sarcasm

 

EDIT.  I’ve been corrected, Chatr has always been a Rogers brand.  Thanks @computergeek541
