I stumbled upon this introductory offer from Freedom, where they include 1.5GB with no zones? Could it be that Public Mobile is making them squirm?
Maybe. And hopefully PM will do a bit more on the new $25 plan (perhaps bump data to 1.5GB to match). Price is already beater with auto-pay.
Freedom is not a direct competitor. It’s great for folks who live and work 8n their coverage areas, but it’s awful if you do not.
Ironically, Freedom Mobile customers who are often outside of Freedom's coverage areas will often receive better service because of how some of the plans include roaming usage.
