Re: Why public mobile is among the best in Canada?

GB LTE Data Plan

The best data-only Public Mobile plan is their 1GB LTE Data plan for as low as $28/30 days.

Why I love it ?:

 Public Mobile offers a full-speed LTE plan which lets you download at over 100Mbps. The $30 price is similar to more offers from more premium brands like Fido and Koodo, but with AutoPay you get a $2 credit on every bill making this plan effectively only $28/30 days. You don't get any bonus data with AutoPay, but you're also enjoying full-speed LTE on Telus which is Canada's largest, fastest and most reliable network.

Best Data-Only Plan


Instant messaging, video chat and Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) lets people communicate in so many ways that don't require mobile talk time. Pay for the data and avoid paying for things you don't need.

With unlimited Canada-wide, "talk time" is a thing of the past. The other options require data or wifi. I suppose you could text with MMS but then recipients will need to turn on their data to receive. And still...is 1gb enough for all that?

If high-speed data isn't a priority, you can get 8.5GB of 3G-speed data, unlimited talk and text for as little as $48/30-days

Public Mobile's Network Coverage


Because they're owned by Telus, Public Mobile uses the Telus Mobility network. That's a really good thing, because year after year Telus takes the prize for the fastest, largest, and most reliable cell phone network across Canada. They have coverage for 99% of Canadians, and you get full access to that when you're a Public Mobile customer.

Even though you're usually connecting to the Telus LTE network, your downloads may not be full speed. Most Public Mobile plans include "3G-speed" data, which is another way of saying it's throttled to 3Mbps. That's still fast enough for premium-quality audio streams and even some low-resolution videos on YouTube and Netflix. 

While speeds may be slower, it's much cheaper. Public Mobile plans put twice as much mobile data in your pocket for half the price of most plans with premium carriers like Telus, Rogers or Bell. While they compete directly with Chatr and Lucky Mobile, Public Mobile is the only one that lets you switch to full-speed LTE data. It costs more for a lower data cap, but it's nice to have the option without having to switch carriers.

Unlimited Canada-Wide Talk, Text and 2GB of 3G-speed Data

The best value Public Mobile plan is the 2GB Canada-Wide Talk, Text & Data Plan with AutoPay for $38/30 days.

 The average Canadian mobile user burns through less than 2GB of data every month. This $33/30-days promotional plan will suit just fine. Sign up with a credit card for AutoPay and Public Mobile will credit your bill $2 making this plan effectively only $33 every 30 days.

Your downloads are limited to "3G speeds" which works out to about 3.0 Mbps (full-speed LTE is over 100Mbps).  Download speeds are throttled, so you won't be able to enjoy Netflix while on the go, but it's still fast enough to stream music.

Bring Your Own Phone

Public Mobile doesn't sell phones. Period.

The good news is that their network runs on a modern 4G-LTE network supported by most mobile phones. You should still check it will work on their network technology by contacting a Public Mobile representative or entering your phone information on the Public Mobile website. If you have an old phone (or know someone who does) then you can save hundreds of dollars instead of buying a new device.

If your smartphone was bought more than two years ago you'll want to confirm that it's not locked to another carrier. If it is, no worries, you can get your phone unlocked for free.
