Re: The new Feb 16, 2021 Plans! (including Province-Wide calling)

from "More Details"
  • (1) Taxes are extra. The account must have sufficient funds to cover the total cost each month.
  • (2) Province-Wide option includes outgoing calls you make anywhere in Canada to a number with an area code in the same province, and incoming calls you receive while you are in your home province. A Long Distance Talk Add-On is required to receive incoming calls while you are outside your home province.
  • (3) Includes text and picture messaging. Premium and subscription-based messaging, to and from non-Canadian numbers, are not included. Picture messaging on BlackBerry smartphones requires the BlackBerry 10 operating system. Talk, text, and data services refer to services offered while connected to the TELUS/Public Mobile network in your local calling area (Province-wide or Canada-wide) (ex. Calls must originate from Canada). For service when not connected to your local calling area (ex. You are outside of Canada), a roaming package must be purchased.
  • (4) Plans with 4G LTE data can access maximum LTE download speeds (manufacturer rated at up to 750 Mbps; expected average speeds 12-200 Mbps). Plans with 3G data may reach download speeds of up to 2.5 Mbps, with the coverage and reliability of the LTE network. Speed and signal strength may vary with your device, configuration, Internet traffic, environmental conditions, applicable network managemreent and other factors. For a description of Public Mobile’s network management practices, please see publicmobile.ca/pdfs/Optimization.pdf. Compatible device required. Data usage is rounded up each session to the nearest 10KB. Data service on BlackBerry smartphones requires the BlackBerry 10 operating system.

 

  • Yes "managemreent" is spelled that way...
  • Conditions 5 (Call Display), 7 (U.S Minutes) are not mentioned in self serve (yet?)
  • Are they officially reducing the throttled LTE from 3Mbps to 2.5Mbps? Someone should test this on a new plan...
  • No more USA calling (or Canada-wide) included in the $50 plan
  • You will be unable to RECEIVE calls if you are not in your "home" province without a Canada-wide long-distance add-on. Which means incoming calls will also consume those minutes. (Interesting! Probably explains how the "old" province-wide plans behaved)

Re: The new Feb 16, 2021 Plans! (including Province-Wide calling)

wow, the $50 plan is going to be downgraded heavily.

 

the Canada wide plans will be deleted soon.

 

I think it was a good approach, instead of the $5 increase to all plans

Right, thanks I edited the OP to "grey out" the canada-wide plans. At least the loss of Canada-wide calling is easily compensated with the $5/500min add-on. Maybe the people with a "sneak peak" assumed that everyone would have to add the $5 addon... But it's not too bad since it carries over until fully used.

 

Hopefully the price of that addon doesn't change... 🤞 Hmm i should go look at addons... Edit: Nope no changes to addons.

Well what do you know...a salesperson knew something.

I see the US calling still in the $50 plan.

So are we really thinking that the Canada-wide will drop?

If so, I gotta think new customers will look elsewhere. Lock in what you want now folks.

 

There's an easter egg.....

So these are the new plans for any one new as of the 16th and any one wanting to change plans. 

 

Are the existing plans grand fathered??

 

Thanks for the update.

We'll have to watch throughout the day if most or all of the canada-wide plans become no longer available to choose in self-serve, and when they will show up on the main website outside of self-serve. I presume these would be the same choices presented during an activation if someone wants to try that and bail out before completing. 😁

 

It appears existing plans will be grandfathered.

Re: The new Feb 16, 2021 Plans! (including Province-Wide calling)

@z10user4 I don't think new customers will be deterred. the higher tiers will have more expensive plans after the promo's end. this was a very good solution! 

 

this is basically what the plan changes will look like

 

Koodo

  • $50/2gb
  • $55/4gb
  • $60/6gb
  • $65/8gb

PM's plans currently

  • $33/2.5gb
  • $38/5gb
  • $43/6.5gb
  • $48/8.5gb

$17 is very good 

 

*just wanted to let you all know that when you purchase a post paid promo plan, you aren't locked into that price. the telecoms will give you that price for 1 year and then they will raise the plan by $5 every year. it's sneaky, but this is what they do. so don't be fooled with all the data promo's and cheap prices.

Re: The new Feb 16, 2021 Plans! (including Province-Wide calling)

Once they remove the Canada Wide Calling plans......I’m not impressed or excited with the Provincial Plans. I will stay locked in with my grandfathered plan and there is no reason to change plans in the future. I can’t recommend Public Mobile to anyone. There is nothing positive with this change. What the heck Telus!!! 

It would have been better to keep the Canada Wide Calling plans at the current price and have Provincial Plans at a reduced price.

@LurganIeUk   existing plans have typically been grandfathered.   we will need to wait for the official announcement to know 100% .
