Telus prepaid brand Public Mobile has launched a new promo plan starting today, July 19, 2019, geared towards those heading to the U.S.
“Say hello to Summer! We’ve got the perfect plan for anyone headed state-side this Summer. For a limited time only, effective July 19th, 2019, you could get 8.5 GB of Canada Wide data, plus 2 GB of US Data Roaming, and Unlimited US roaming/Canada US Talk & Text for $60/mo!”
This promo Public Mobile 30-day plan includes the following:
- $60 for 8.5GB data at 3G speed (8GB + 500MB Autopay bonus)
- 2GB of U.S. data
- Unlimited Canada/US Talk & Text
- New and current customers eligible
The plan offers unlimited talk and text to the United States and vice versa, which may appeal for Canadian ‘snowbirds’ who head south for the winter. The included data means no longer requiring the purchase of a U.S. data add-on or voice add-on.
Public Mobile customers can activate this plan at a participating retailer or online, by selecting the ready-made plan “$60 UL Can/US Talk & Text 8.5GB Can 3G Data with AutoPay plus 2GB US Data Roaming.” After your Autopay discount, the plan is $58 per month.
This promo plan has not been matched by Public Mobile’s rivals Lucky Mobile and Chatr yet, but expect them to do so soon.
