Hi I used to be with public but switched away. I now need a second line and am thinking about having that on public mobile. But can anyone share LTE speed in b.c if possible close to new Westminster.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As @imm1304 mentioned, Public Mobile recently fixed the throttling bug. The speed has been improved alot since then. I am not in the New West but somewhere near there and i got this speed at home. I am sure you won't have to worry about the coverage as long as your phone is fully compatible with Telus network.
@ShawnC13 Is that speed you got after they fixed the throttling bug? It should be more than that unless you aren't connecting to LTE bands.
I am not a mod. Do not send me private message with your personal info.

Speed is decent in BC area. You wont get much LTE speed result as it used up too many data.
You can simply sign up for a short term and test it in your area by yourself, results varies, depends on many variables.
You can expect excellent data speeds in most areas where there is Telus coverage.
Recently, PM fixed a bug that was resulting in slower LTE speeds. Read the last few pages of this thread where people have reported speedtest results, many of them from BC: http://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Discussions/Is-Public-Mobile-s-LTE-throttled-vs-Telus-...
Hoepfully someone from the specific area you are interested in will comment sooner or later.
You can check for the cell towers in your area on this map:
PM uses any green (Telus) or blue (Bell) towers. You can also click on the individual towers to see which bands they support.
If the old sim card was already used, then you have 90 days from the day the last plan expired on that sim card. If more than 90 days have passed, then you can toss it.
If its an unused sim card, it doesnt really expire until activated first.
