$40 Plan to stay?

Hi,

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?

For now it's a standard plan. Not planned to change. Good question though because it did change briefly a few months ago.

It's likely here to stay as it does not say "Limited Time Only" on the plan page.

AFAIK, yes, it's here to stay, though I don't have a crystal ball. As you mentioned, the plans can change, regardless of promo or standard. But PM is usually quite good at giving notice of any changes.

This is a very competitive plan for sure, really making me think twice about my $30 2gb plan...

Does public mobile usually give notice when plans are changing? Like in announcement posts?

Sometimes but not always.

Yep! Initially, I think they were a bit abrupt w/ retiring the $10 plan and users spoke up. PM then brought back the plan for awhile, and gave a good heads-up the second go-around about retiring the plan. Any time there's been a change to a plan, I've seen an announcement on the forums.

 

I'd suggest to follow these steps to subscribe to the announcement subforum: https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Plans-Add-Ons/Re-How-to-get-notified-of-ANY-New-Promo...

Unfortunately, nobody here can give a promise or guarantee that this plan won't ever change. Although rare, the plan could change even for existing customers. As for the current $40 plan that is offered to new customers, it has been changed a few times in the last couple of years. Some different versions during this time have included 2.5, 4.5, or 5GB of data (with autopay).

Hey @Oblivious !

 

Your current $40 for 4.5 GB + a 500 MB Bonus seems to be quite awesome! 

 

As for the moment, this plan seems to be here to stay for a while perhaps. Although, there is no guarantee and no telling when this plan might get changed slightly, or changed greatly or even just flat-out expire as a plan choice. 

 

My intuition says that this plan will most likely not be changed and is here to stay for a while as this is a True North Certified Affordable Plan as @Jb456 mentioned with their screenshot. 

 

Although I myself cannot predict the future as much as I wish I could, and I'm sure our other fellow Community members most likely will also not know if the plan will change so it is generally advised to be aware that plans could get changed at any moment & possibly sometimes without too much of a notice, or a notice at all. Just something to keep an eye on.

 

Generally, I believe Public Mobile will send an email notification or some sort of notice or alert to customers to let them know of any changes to the plan or if the plan is going into expiry. 

 

Hope this helps! 🙂 

 

Cheers
