Public Mobile vs Telus

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

Just switched over to Public Mobile from Telus due to high plan costs. I am surprised how quick and easy it was. Porting my previous number took less than 10 minutes, followed the start guide shown here and I was good to go. If anyone is debating on switching I suggest you go for it since you will get the same coverage as Telus whilst paying less. Thank you Public Mobile for offering great plans!

We all agree with you!  That's why we are all here.


@Recovery , welcome to Public Mobile.  This service is a stripped down version of the Telus service at a wallet friendly cost.

@Recovery  welcome to PM.  Thanks for sharing your experience.  Porting in general is supposed to be pretty quick, I've had porting take even less than 5 minutes.  As long as you follow the appropriate steps there should be minimal issues.  Sometimes you do need to be a bit patient as maybe certain features might take a bit longer (i.e. outgoing or incoming calls).  But in general should be a seamless process.


Now comes the good part, finding ways to save as much money each month as possible Smiley LOL  Enjoy the savings.

Agreed! Public Mobile is very easy to use for folks who don't have many questions and know what they are looking for! The rewards and savings are worth it!


Personally, my porting took 2 days but I contacted a MOD and they were very vigilant and helpful through the process. There were some difficulties involving my ASUS phone, yadda yadda, had to manually change things. But all in all, a good time!

Public mobile is telus towers!

@Amy1m87Public Mobile is owned by Telus and is Telus' lowest tier flanker brand. It uses the Telus tower out in the west and uses Bell towers in the East where Telus towers are not available.
