After launching its prepaid wireless service in BC, Albert and Ontario back in December, Bell’s prepaid wireless brand, Lucky Mobile, has debuted its services in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
The prepaid wireless service is targeted towards seniors, students and immigrants, as no credit checks are required for the service, which aims to rival Telus’ Public Mobile and Rogers’ Chatr.
Lucky Mobile says all incoming international calls and texts are included with every plan, which start at $20 with unlimited talk. Additional add-ons are available in the form of a Service Pass, available at $3-5 for 30 days. Plans with data start at $40 per month with unlimited Canada-wide calling and 1GB data at 3G speeds.
“Expanding the reach of Lucky Mobile to Manitoba and Saskatchewan provides even more Canadians with access to a great new low-cost wireless service option,” said Blaik Kirby, President of Bell Mobility, in a press release. “With no credit checks, no long term commitments and no surprises, Lucky is the always predictable and affordable way to access all the wireless services you need.”
Lucky Mobile offers 19 zones across most major cities in Canada. Later this year, a new mobile app will debut to allow talk and text over Wi-Fi outside of monthly usage plans.
