No WIFI - need more data

Good day, I am an established public mobile customer. I have been thrilled with the product and self service approach.

I moved to a rural location and no longer have Wi Fi, so I am relying on cellular data only.

I need a significant amount more of data (5-10gb).

Does public mobile have any large data add-on options? I don't like the thought of switching carriers too increase my data plan. Hopefully there is an option that is cost-effective.

 

Thanks in advance to all that reply.

Re: No WIFI - need more data

@Jimmyd9 currently the highest amount of data offered by  PM is 8.5 gigs of data on the $50 plan. Telus has an  unlimited 20 gig plan for $75. 

Peace of Mind™

Bonus 10GB for a total of 20GB. After 20GB, you can still surf and stream as you normally would, but apps and video will take longer to load2. Limited time offer.

 
$75

Due monthly

This should satisfy your data needs do the he same great coverage. You can also keep your PM plan but switxh down to a lower one ie The $15 one.Stay safe. 

 

May I suggest  Canadian Cell Supplies they currently have Telus Sims for $4.99

Re: No WIFI - need more data

@Jimmyd9 Hello the largest plan they have is the $50 8 gigabyte plus another 500 mb if you’re on auto pay maybe you could change to that if it suits your needs They also have 1 GB add-ons for $15 which are half price at the moment they are usually 30 bucks

@Jimmyd9 , the major brands is the only option for large data buckets.  I would suggest shopping for LTE home internet.  I believe that is something offered in some rural areas of the country.

Maybe the 50$ for 8GB will suit your needs. And with autopay, it gives you another 500MB. Then purchase data add-on as needed. Data addon has a promo of 15$/1GB with regular price of 30$/1GB.

Re: No WIFI - need more data

Thanks for the replies everyone,

I already heart have the largest data plan, so it looks like I may need to switch carriers unfortunately. Anyone know of super good deals on large data packages ie 20+ GB?

Re: No WIFI - need more data

I know somebody who was getting an extra $50 (last year actually 60) plan during the summer. She could have moved to another provider but she wouldn't give up the rewards she built up over years, and she would be saving also there test of the year.

You could consider another sim with public or somebody else. 

I do have high hopes of being that 12+0.5 for $60-2 plan.

I agree with will13am. Flip it around. Instead of large cell phone data, get an internet service. Spend less here, spend more there. You're gonna pay for internet data one way or another.

 

Check all the possible providers available to you whether satellite or cable or adsl or home based cell service.

I'm in a rural area and I'm very happy with the Telus SmartHub service. I'm about 13km from the nearest tower. But I don't think they operate this service everywhere.
