Public Mobile refreshes rate plans, offers global text on all new plans

Telus sub-brand Public Mobile has recently made some major changes to its offerings, including now providing global text on all plans.

The company is also now touting a 90-day plan with 6GB of data for the same price as their previous 4GB 90-day plan. The plan costs $120 for approximately three months and includes province-wide talk and unlimited global text.

Other noteworthy additions are a 2GB 30-day plan and 3GB 90-day plan. Meanwhile, aiming for simplicity, Public has cut the 1GB and 4GB data options for 90-day plans, as well as the 6GB 30-day plan. In a candid post in its forum the company stated this was because as “very few customers were taking advantage of this plan.”

Public Mobile is a prepaid-only carrier that requires customers to bring their own phones, or directs them to buy inexpensive factory-refreshed phones through partner Orchard.
