Wind versus PM

Thought I'd do a comparison between Wind and Public Mobile, to see if it was worth switching.  This was all done at one location, in my condo around Bathurst and Centre in Thornhill.  The differences are staggering...

 

In case other people are considering switching, I thought I'd post the results...keep in mind, this is only one location at one snapshot in time, but I think the results speak for themselves...

 

So, after doing this little comparison on 10-day plan, suffice it to say that I switched to the $40/month plan.  I'm with PM now!

Awesome. I knew how it would look like just from reading the title. 

 

Welcome to Public Mobile, enjoy that great speed.

Since PM is running on Telus network, so use it as a Telus line, and enjoy!

Re: Wind versus PM

I am thinking the same thing. Wind has alot more data 5GB. 8GB at the price as the 2GB per month offered by Public Mobile. It is going to be difficult to stay with PM although I am pleased with the service.

Re: Wind versus PM

Well, 4GB at 25Mb/sec is worth way more to me than 8GB of 1Mb/sec.

Wind was terribly annoying with respect to data speed. And besides data, I had so many issues with calls being dropped and not getting any signal at times around the GTA, which is ultimately why I left.

I've haven't been with Public Mobile for too long, but the internet is a pleasure to deal with...there is no comparison. Consider yourself warned if you switch to Wind!

@talkalot, by the way, I think you misunderstood my original message. I left Wind for PM.

Re: Wind versus PM

Was with Wind for almost 2-3 years, most of times used to have reception issues and slow speeds. Doesn't work inside huge buildings and in home basement. Glad I switched to PM 2 years back and I'm very satisfied till date.

Also, Wind coverage is like zonal but PM works almost everywhere in Canada.

Not  even talking about speed but building penettation for signal is no comparison
