TELUS-Owned Public Mobile Launches New Self Serve Plans, Rewards Program

Share:

TELUS-owned Public Mobile has announced changes to the brand, product offerings and service. The company says users that joined prior to January 27, 2015 will remain with their regular service:

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Public Mobile brand, products and service.

To make sure everything runs smoothly, we’re launching in BETA only to a small group of customers. This way we can learn from their experience and improve along the way.

But don’t worry! If you joined us before January 27th, 2015 everything will remain “Business As Usual”. And that means you get to keep your current rate plan and service for as long as you remain an active customer.

Along with a new website, here are the self serve plans available—customers just pick their own based on days, unlimited talk, unlimited text, data and also discounts based on your selections of 2 or 3 options:

As you can see from above, a monthly plan with unlimited talk, text and 4GB of data will cost you $80. You also have the option of not selecting talk or text plans and going with data only.

Want to use your iPhone on Public Mobile? The company says “Please note iPhones may not work with a Public Mobile SIM card but we’re working hard to fix that!” The company’s forums state unlocked iPhones will be able to make calls and send SMS texts, but Public Mobile’s data network will not, as they still are working to “update the carrier bundle for the device.”

Public Mobile has also started a rewards program where you can get the following:

  • Monthly payments reduced by $1 after the first year, $2 after the second and so on
  • Setup authorized credit card AutoPay, get $2 off each month
  • Refer a friend and get $1 off each month as long as they stay with Public Mobile
  • Engage in the Public Mobile online Community, earn points that can save up to $10 on monthly payments

Public Mobile’s new self serve value brand means there’s no longer a retail presence, therefore reducing retail and infrastructure costs. Are you going to be joining Public Mobile anytime soon?
