Are prices going to be cheaper soon since the Federal government lowered them?

Does Public plan to pass on savings to customers since the pricing structure was changed by the CRTC? I was excited to hear the government finally implemented changes, but confused to not really see any changes to prices!

I have not heard of planned cuts yet from PM.

 

Have a look at this article.

Liberals give big 3 wireless providers two years to cut prices by 25 per cent

@awfmilton Are you referring to True North Affordability thing? It is implemented by PM already because plan prices are lower than for big 3. Or you mention something else?

Lol, no! I saw that they slapped those stickers on the existing plans. Hilarious. But I agree, they do meet the requirements for true north affordability. I was expecting all plans to be reduced in price, or for all plans to get more data. 

 

It seems like Public is saying something like "our plans were already low enough, so we're not changing prices".

According to the article for the big 3:

 

The price reductions for the three national carriers could look like this:

  • 2 GB plans that currently cost $50 would drop to $37.50.

  • 4 GB plans that cost $55 would drop to $41.25.

  • 6 GB plans that cost $60 would drop to $45.

Public Mobile is already meeting or beating those prices required for the Ture North Affordability or whatever they are calling it.  Stick around for a year and your bill will go down for sure!!

That's great too! But I was actually referring to the wholesale rates issue. So the big 3 sell voice, sms, and data services at rates only available to wholesalers. I always just assumed Public set their rates based on the wholesale rates.

I think this is exactly right. Talk to your MP if you don't think it's sufficient. PM's plans are already below government targets. They can slap their own little moniker on their plans and say we're done.

I think True North Affordability is Telus's marketing buzz word.

Unforutnatley, placing a logo next to the plan details didn't change anything. If other carriers offer better plans, some customers wil naturally switch. It's often the loss of customers that encourages a carrier to compete.

I've been here for almost 2 years, I've got it down to 11 dollars a month, and I get 4% cash back by paying my bill with my KOHO card!
