$40 Plan to stay?

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen


I think the $40 plan with 4.5GB + 500 mb bonus was like a limited time plan before?

Is it here to stay now or is it still a limited time plan technically?


I do understand that plans are subjected to change and any time and stuff without warning, but asides from that is it a standard plan we can get and not like a limited time plan?


If it does not stay. Would I be correct in saying:


1. It would no longer be advertised. 


2.  It would become a grandfathered plan for existing customers on the $40 plan.

Yup! That's correct. If the plan is no longer being advertised, you may be able to still keep it as a grandfathered plan. 


However, the details & contents of the plan could change at any moment with or possibly without a notice.


Just something to keep an eye out for.

Service Terms


Can the terms of service change?

Yes, Public Mobile has the right to change any of the terms of service, including rates, without notice. Changes become effective thirty days after being
posted at plans. By purchasing service after a change is posted, including by continuing to top up your account, you accept the current
terms of service. You can cancel service at any time, without penalty or cancellation fees.

Mayor / Maire

PM is quite good about continuing legacy plans. Many people have plans or promos which are no longer offered, many still have legacy plans (at legacy prices) from years ago.


To my knowledge, PM has only discontinued its ancient Pioneer plans - throwbacks to its pre-Telus origins. And even then, PM made a good effort to communicate to affected customers (for months), along with special offers to move towards other plans.


Nothing lasts forever. If you get a few years of awesome savings from a plan that's great. If not, you can buy something else. And if you never bought it in the first place but just watched the vendor remove it from the store shelf then you lost nothing anyhow.
