I'd be curious to know why there is a reluctance to offer a plan like this on 4G .........(we are all abundantly aware, by now, that 3G has be deleted in the USA and is on the way to being phased out in Canada) .....?
Yep, 5gigs of data is a deal, ..BUT... it's still at that slower download speed...!
How about you split the difference and do 3 gigs of data at 4G speed....? OR, take it even further, -(if you want to make it really tempting), by reducing that $25.00 subscription rate and make it a "semi-annual" .... heck, even.... an "annual" plan...!
"3G", "4G" and "5G" plans refer to the data speed contained within the plan not the network. They all favour usage on the 4G LTE network. Customers without a device provisioned for VoLTE will switch to the 3G network for voice calls in Canada and T-Mobile's 2G network when roaming in the US. Customers on a "5G" plan with a 5G capable device will switch to the 5G network where available in both Canada and when roaming in the US.
Final update that relate to this SMS promoted Plan for $25 5GB with 3G speed:
With the reply from CS_Agent, they believe the plan is not included with international text message, but they do suggested me to send a SMS to my friend outside Canada to test if the plan has this feature, if the SMS cannot be sent, which mean this plan has excluded the international texting for this plan. At the end, my friend from Asian country can received my sms and reply back. At the end, i believe this plan does included with the international text messaging feature as mention by Hardy1, and DennyCrane, also the term and conditions at section 3.
It seems this deal had been offered for Quebec only area without internationally message feature, During my email exchange with CS_Agent, he mentioned this plan was same as the one offer at Quebec area, and he thought i am from Quebec, until i make a clarification that I reside at BC and never been to Quebec. Ans i did show him my screenshot of the SMS direct offer.
At the end, i am very happy with all the help and support from you guys in the community forum and from CS_agent to ensure to make everything clear for me. Which make my anxiety level go back to normal.
I wish everyone who reply YES to this offer and get what they want, and not search in the fog.
There seems to be are night time for them, its about 11PM at the other side of the world. I will try it probably later today. If end up there is no international text messaging, I still have other messaging and social media app to fulfill mt need sending messages oversea and over the border.😁
