$5 is $60 a year, $600 over ten years. I have the $10 plan, it's more than I need, PM should reinstate it as they are throwing away business by not offering it.
Offering it might be throwing away money if those customer would have signed up to $15 plan. Having more business is not always the best thing for Public Mobile's bottom line.
Some would some wouldn't- I can get free calling and texting on WiFi so $10 and under is worth it, over $10 I'll pass.
I know someone else who just signed up for $10 on another carrier, same thing, won't even use the entry level minutes, will opt for the cheapest plan going.
There's 2 examples X $100/year which would reflect at least a few thousand potential customers. Dumb move by PM in my estimation.
