I've noticed that at least one of PM's major competitors offers a very similar plan to the one I have now, with one key difference: the competitor's plan SLOWS data down (quite a lot, I believe down to 64 kbps, but good enough for instant messaging etc) instead of stopping data altogether. Why doesn't PM offer the same thing?
the does the competitor offer rewards like PM does? Each brand has their strengths and weeknesses.
your options are:
You can try asking if they could match it.
@Elleey13 FYI, there is zero price matching or negotiation at Public Mobile. This is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get-and-what-you-don't-see-is-what-you-don't-get kind of a provider. The plans are what they are, take them or leave them.
I don't bother with trying to convince a service provider to accommodate my needs.
Why not? That's how you stimulate a competitive marketplace. And ultimately the customer always wins when there's more competition.
@heymcfly_ FYI what you're asking for actually amounts to less choice and IMHO less competition. We see enough of the big 3 copying each other over and over, and their flanker brands do the same--just look at all the 'competitive respnose' promo plans we've seen here from PM over the past 6-12 months as an example. They are matching whatever Chatr and Lucky do enough already; maybe the way it works here works better for some people than what you're asking for? Maybe we want that choice?
