Thoughts on MintMobile? And will it be in Canada?

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

I’ve been hearing a lot about MintMobile having a $15/month unlimited plan. Any thoughts about the brand and when (if) it will be available in Canada?

Ryan Reynolds is the owner of Mint Mobile from Vancouver, BC. 
He should stir up the big 3 in Canada along with Visible Mobile (Verizon).

Also, TextNow should offer SIMs for free calling and texting in Canada like what they are doing in the USA…good thing I got a TextNow SIM for $0.99 usd. 😉🥳 Since TextNow operation is in Canada.


After watching Marketplace on CBC about how the big 3 are gouging Canadians on cell phone plans…it makes me mad.😤🤬 


The Fereral government are not stopping the merger of Shaw to Rogers…meaning less competition for lower cell plans.

@Public_Man  I heard rumours of it and even saw some Ryan Reynolds’s advertising for it and thought it was a real possibility. But as @dust2dust  points out about stranglehold the big 3 have , I’m not holding my breath !

Did you go to their site? Currently it's $30 for unlimited. Although it's really actually a 35gb plan with this fine print:

"Unlimited plan customers using >35GB/mo will experience lower speeds. Videos stream at 480p."

And they're all 3 month plans.

As for Canada...good luck with that. The big 3 have a stranglehold on the regulator keeping the door tightly shut.
