An ad for a company called Netlive showed up on my Facebook news feed.  Has anyone looked into this company?  Any good?  They are advertising 4G service with unlimited Canada wide "unlimited DIGITAL voice & texting" calling for similar prices & similar amounts of data.  Will PM respond to these offers in kind?

@bluejaywpg Interesting. I wonder what they mean by "Digital voice". Too bad PM cant offer similar plans.

@BearFBI good question.  I would expect that in 2020, you're not going to find any analog voice service (which would basically be....GSM?  or perhaps older (TDMA/CDMA?)).  Maybe they mean that it's an over-the-top VoIP service over mobile data rather than 3G voice or VoLTE?

@srlawren Yeah I have no clue either. Analog voice service over cellular is pretty much gone here in Canada. 

 

You might be right. It could be a VoIP service over its mobile data network kinda like fongo. 

 

I am personally not a fan of using VoIP apps to call and especially text.

Netlive is continuing to advertise on Facebook. And I think, based on the footnotes at the bottom of 1 of the Netlive pages, that indeed talking consumes data.  I have no idea how much data is consumed by a typical 1 hour long call. If it's say 100 MB, I could probably live with that.  But I doubt it's going to be anywhere near that small.  And I don't do very many calls per month either - I mostly talk to my dad & that's about it beyond the oddball call here & there.

So unless one does no more than say a few minutes of calls per month, I cannot see how this would be worth it - especially for the lowest plan.  Better off sticking with PM.

*Unlimited calling and texting up to data limit on plan.  

*Calls are made using the Netlive App.

I have had a phone with netlive for over a year with No problems what so ever. I have been late on a couple of payments and they worked with so I could get caught up with them. The service has been great.

I have internet with them and got the lowest costing and I regret that the service is to slow for me. I moving up to the next level I'm sure it will be much better for me. I had no problems 😊 moving up a level. I will let you know if it is better.

Thank you

@bluejaywpg  100mb is about 200 minutes with VOIP. I couldn't find any info on Netlive cellular service just home internet. Their phone service is VOIP.

 

Check out Fongo offers for cellular data, VOIP, and home internet. I have a Fongo number as emergency backup over wifi, tried out their cellular service (fine on Rogers backbone) and just converted to their $50 DSL service. For our invoice crazy colleagues both cellular and home internet are invoiced before payment taken - only autopay is accepted.
