Public Mobile Discontinues Province-Wide Plans After Consumer Feedback

Telus-owned prepaid brand, Public Mobile, has announced changes to its plans on Friday.

Public Mobile says starting today, province-wide plans will be discontinued, while some plans have been updated with more data. “This comes as a result of listening to feedback from our customers on how we’re doing,” said Public Mobile, referring to the cancellation of province-wide calling plans.

Back in February, Public Mobile debuted province-wide calling plans, while making Canada-wide calling a $5 extra. Telus flanker brand Koodo similarly implemented province-wide calling, but soon backtracked after consumer backlash. It was unclear at the time if Public Mobile would follow suit, but now we have our answer.

As for other plan changes, Public Mobile says they are bringing back its $15 Canada-wide calling plan, while $35 and $50 plans get increased data, now at 3GB and 10.5GB respectively. Also gone is the company’s $45 rate plan.
