    Telus is putting more pressure on Wind.

    • Joeyjoejoeshabadooo

      I hate that it’s true… and that my level of service with wind is so bad that I might try it… and that my level of service with mobilicity was so bad that I went to wind…

    Hmm will take a look at how they compare to Koodo, which I’m on right now. Helps that my iPhone is Telus locked.

    • silver_arrow

      Yeah you wouldn’t need to get it unlocked as it is the same network, though you should if you leave telus

  • silver_arrow

    Now how about Telus offering 1, 1.5 and 2 year contracts and all of their phones not just some of them

  • rgl168

    PC Mobile has partnered with Bell for the existing services, so I would have thought they would have went with Bell with postpaid also.

    Well, let’s see what they will bring when it comes to pricing and services.

    • Joeyjoejoeshabadooo

      If a dollar of my money would go to bell I would never EVER consider PC post paid

    • rgl168

      Well I guess you won’t have to worry about that now.

      Here’s another potential issue: for those who are on existing PC prepaid service (hence using Bell-locked phones), and supposed they want to convert over to postpaid and BYOD their current phones over… oops.

  • Scott Towe

    Any newer telus phone will work on the Koodo network with out unlocking it!!

  • Victor T Li

    If that’s the no-contract price for the phones, I might pick up a Lumia 520 for my dad.

    • jlm

      you’d be better off buying from koodo @ $150

  • Davidyyz

    I’m pretty sure the wholesale rates that the Big 3 charge would prevent any MVNO from being a serious threat. I don’t see anything game changing coming out from this, but I’m hoping to be surprised.

    I’m on a pretty decent plan with Virgin Mobile, but they aren’t trying at all to retain my business:making me buy a BB Z10 outright because I’d lose my plan if I go on contract… so I’m keen to jump ship if it means I’ll save a few bucks a month and have a competitive plan. Come on, Loblaw!

  • K-LEB

    Loblaws/ PC Mobile decided to partner with Telus due to their standards and the values they stand for, not to mention they’re usually the first to set promos.

  • disqussucks

    If I could save on groceries at loblaws and get a good plan, I would switch

  • peshe3658

    Sadly this is probably $60 for 500mb of data, unlimited texting and 500 minuites, but I hope I am plesently surprised when the official feature list is available.

  • KoalaMeatPie

    Wait, what? PC is Bell. They killed/are killing SOLO only to bring up PC?
