Public Mobile Launches $13/250MB Plan with 100 Minutes, Unlimited Texting After Autopay

Public mobile $15 plan

Telus prepaid brand Public Mobile has launched a new $15 monthly plan for new and existing customers.

This plan launches today, March 15, and includes the following details:

  • 30-day plan
  • 100 minutes of Canada-wide Talk
  • Unlimited International Text and Picture Messaging
  • Bonus 250 MB 3G data with AutoPay
  • Voicemail and Call Display

Setting up pre-authorized payments via Autopay results in a $2 monthly discount plus 250MB of data, taking this plan down to $13 every 30 days.

This plan from Public Mobile differs from a similar $15 offering from Rogers prepaid brand chatr, however. The chatr offer includes unlimited incoming calls, unlike this Public Mobile plan. However, the chatr offering only has 100 Canada-wide minutes.

At $13 per month, this plan might be a good starter plan for your kid, or a senior or anyone who doesn’t use their cellphone frequently.

Public Mobile recently rolled out a $23/1GB 3G data plan with unlimited Canada-wide talk and text after Autopay. Also, some Public Mobile users have been targeted with a $50/8GB plan if you opt to switch to Koodo Mobile.

New customers signing up to Public Mobile who activate online can get $25 in credit by signing up under a referral until March 31 (update: extended). Email tips if you require a referral.
