Re: Koodo 10GB plan 60$ per month AB/BC/ON only

Bell and Fido did jack up the price after few months or 1 year as well.  True story.

@BigML, yes I do think you would have some people leave and you wouldn't have a mass rush of new people joining.  Even after people have signed up here they are surprised that there is no customer service call centre and are looking for it.  So yes same price more options people would leave.  As for new customers same deal but PM does have the upper hand on rewards so that may hold off some.

Well... I took the bait! Jumped over to Koodo this morning.

I really enjoyed my time with Public Mobile, and I was really hoping they'd give something to us heavy data users...I'll continue to monitor the site now and then to see if any good deals show up though. So long everybody! Smiley Sad

Same here. Couldn't have said it better myself. No hard feelings about PM. I've never been as satisfied with the service of a mobile company as I was with PM. But the deal was too good to pass up.

 

At least we've switched to a sister company. Kudos (no pun intended) PM!

A friend just went over to Rogers from Bell for this deal... Looks like it's not a 24 months thing.

 

She received this service msg "Great news about the plan that you recently purchased! We have upgraded this promotion. You originally signed up for a 5GB plan with a 5GB bonus for 24 months. This will now be upgraded to a 10GB plan with no 24 month end date. Thank you for choosing Rogers. We appreciate your business."

I was thinking of switching to Robbers because my PM plan is up for renewal in 4 days, but decided against it. Extra GBs are just not worth making a deal with the devil for.

Ya thanks for pointing that out. I cancelled my koodo accounts and went to bell last night. 🤣

And soon everybody will be leaving PM. This company have gone stupid lately. It's gone backward to 3G. Seriously 3G in 2017? Their plans really suck it's like they purposly don't want anyone joining them anymore. Sigh.


Yup. Hate to say it but nothing new came out today. All 3 of my phones in my family on pm were auto pay disabled today and are not due till the middle of Feb. Oh well, I'll burn up my data then port. Went and got k plans from mobile shop in superstore and got a total of 3000 pc points plus 3 packs of decadant chocolate chip cookies today. The guy told me it's been nonstop all day for this plan.

Yep true that, and also if people are getting what they need out of their current plan, what's the point to upgrade unless they can get more for exactly the same price? If you're the kind of person who routinely needs to buy a data add-on because you go over your limit then I would see the point in upgrading. But if you're like me who only used 10 out of 12 gigs of my LTE data with the plan renewing in a day or two then the $60/10 gig plan is irrelevent. Why pay more for data that I won't use anyway? Not saying I'm staying with PM, I may just flip carriers every few months if I can help it, it's whoever gives me the best price for what I need. Right now paying $41/month for 90 days 12 gigs LTE. Can't get this much data on any other plan for that amount right now. So I'm staying put for now.

Agreed Fido did the same thing to me. They changed overage rates without any notification. As for Bell they've got terrible plans, even their Lucky Mobile plans are so restrictive and confusing and top it off with terrible customer service. Bell is a good company to be a shareholder of, not a customer.

Re: Koodo 10GB plan 60$ per month AB/BC/ON only

Not sure this will happen @shadowbanker & @Jonovision as mentioned above, my friend who switched to Rogers received a text saying there's no 24 month end dates for this... So there is hope yet.

 

- I'm still on PM I never go over my data and couldn't justify spending an extra $20 a month for 6 more gb
