Telus prepaid brand, Public Mobile, has launched a new regional-specific offer available only in Quebec.
According to RFD, the Public Mobile offer will start on April 28, 2020, and discount the company’s $35/1GB plan down to $30 per month, plus an extra 500MB data bonus.
If you set your account up with Autopay (pre-authorized credit card billing), you’ll also get a bonus of 500MB and the $2 off per month, which means this plan drops down to $28/2GB with unlimited Canada-wide talk and international SMS/MMS. Not too shabby as a starter plan for your kid.
The plan details note this is specific pricing only available for new account activations online for those in Quebec. The $5/month discount and extra 500MB data bonus will be applied automatically.
Quebec usually gets better cellphone plan pricing due to regional carrier Videotron adding competition against the Big 3.
Usually, Public Mobile promotions are available nationwide but this time it looks like a Quebec-only promo, which may be a sign of further things to come for regional specific plans.
As of writing, the Public Mobile website has not been updated yet with promo pricing, but apparently will show this promo starting on April 28, 2020.
