Public Mobile officially announced their coverage now extents into Markham and next will come to Richmond Hill and Vaughan early May. Public also noted their current coverage area now reaches 8 million people but the spectrum they purchased in 2008 is capable of reaching 19 million in Ontario and Quebec… so still lots of growth to come.
Public Mobile knows their Unlimited Talk and Text service is not for everyone and have always targeted the “value conscious” segment. Even in their latest radio ad they state something like “We’re not for everyone… just those who don’t like to burn money”. Alek Krstajic, CEO of Public Mobile, said in the release that “Canadians have been paying crazy prices for years, and we’re saying that’s over now”. At the end of the month Public will be releasing their first data device called the “BUZZ” along with a $5 Unlimited data add-on.
