Well, I am either going to switch or stay and drop to the 12GB 3G plan for $135 and hopefully convince my referals to do the same. That way I wont lose anything on my 90 days I just renewed.
I have seen 3g at work, and for my data needs, it's fast enough
YES! this is ridiculous....they tricked everyone into signing up with them...this was their plan all along....who knows what they will do when we are with Koodo? hike those rates too????
@kevin_camera Sorry, forgot about the Freedom promo. If it was $120 90-day Province-Wide Talk + Global Text + 12GB Data, then likely those customers will also get the push. Seems Telus was upset with the reults of those promos.
"Unlimited local calling from 5pm to 8am, Monday through Thursday, and 5pm Friday to 8am Monday. For Canada-wide plan, unlimited Canada-wide calling from 5pm to 8am, Monday through Thursday, and 5pm Friday to 8am Monday."

Oh seriously.... what is this? 2005? Thank goodness I don't talk on the phone much anyway but the wife will be upset, she needs it for work.
Phoning using Fongo on your phone to avoid using your phone seems just weird to even just type out.
For everyone thinking about whether to move or stay, I wanted to give you some background.
I switched over from Koodo and while I was on Koodo, my plan had been grandfathered for about 4 years and likely longer but I decided to come over to PM. So I suspect that if you move to Koodo, based on my personal experience with their grandfathering history, you might not have to worry about another change to your plan. However, I don't make ANY guarantees and they could just end up shafting everyone again who ported over in a year. But based on what I've seen with PM in the past year, I wouldn't trust my phone plan with them anymore. We've seen it first hand with legacy customers getting shafted, and now us.
This is definitely the reason why we are getting an increase. Because Telus decided to match the 10gb/$60 offer, which meant a ridiculous amount of customers signed up for that plan, we now have to suffer. They need to get their money from somewhere.
I have also filed a complaint. they SPECIFICALLY addressed this and stated this would not happen. This is complete bull**bleep**.

IMO not a direct result of that. Carriers always hate prepaid subs and want postpaid more, with a higher ARPU. Brings up their blended ARPU.
I just switched. This is shady AF. I know Telus owns PM and Koodo, but PM seems to be screwing everyone. I have a feeling Telus is just trying to kill off PM.
