Struggling wireless carrier Mobilicity was recently granted creditor protection until September 26th. Upon that date, we’ll discover the fate of the company, which revealed in a court document it has 155,000 active subscribers.
In what could be a early back-to-school promotion, or possibly one last kick at the can, Anthony Booth, Mobilicity’s CEO, has teased Canadians “amazing new domestic roaming rates launching this Thursday.” Of course, the Tweet left a great deal to the imagination about pricing, minutes and data. We’re hearing that Mobi will come to market with a revision of its current offering, just adding in more for less, with three add-on prices: $5, $10, and $20.
Mobilicity currently offers service in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and roams off Rogers for nationwide coverage.
Update: Here are the complete new “Data and Voice Canada Roaming” plans from Mobilicity. As expected, the Data and Voice Canada Roaming Bundles start at $5 and rise to $20:
– 100MBs Data (No Voice Minutes) $5
– 200MBs Data + 50 Voice Minutes $10
– 500MBs Data + 100 Voice Minutes $20
There is no word if the prices are a promo, or now fixed for the lifetime of the company. However, Mobilicity states that these new prices are “the lowest Data roaming rates we’ve ever had.”
