      The last price war was only in Quebec, I’m going to bet you’ll have one in your area soon enough.

      If you’re an existing customer you can change to that plan via self serve. I just did it and I’m in Alberta.

    They got interesting again! After their last price hike they were probably hearing crickets.

    I guess the $40 per month/120 days/12GB promo won’t be coming back any time soon?

    PM customers do not get the same speeds as TELUS and Koodo customers.

    • Samano

      Make sense any proof

      I got something like 165 mpbs in a speedtest few weeks back, they for sure get the same speeds

    • Samano

      Okay that nice .

    • Hello Moto ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Do PM customers really need 150-200 Mbps? 20-70 Mbps is plenty for the meager data allowances included with Canadian phone plans.

      More for your money I always good for consumers

    • mysteriousanon

      They do. There was an issue in their backend that was resolved a couple of months ago. Speeds went from 60mbps to 215mbps in the same location.

      Also there’s a thread regarding the throttling and it mentions that the issue has been resolved, unless you have more up to date info

      Riiiiiiight….

    What happens after 90 days? What would be the point in switching if you get the same craptastic telus rates after 90 days?

    • silver_arrow

      You pay again.

    • Miles Harbord

      So it’s not monthly, it’s every 90 days? What’s the point?

    • Discounted rate. Check it out in the PM site. Its easy to see the plan layed out. I just switched my plan and got an additional 2 GB per month for 195 every 90 days. 18 GB, Canada wide calling and multi media text.

    • nekkidtruth

      The point is you pay every 90 days instead of every 30 days. Weekdays the point in paying every 30 days? Any does the need to be a point?

  • nekkidtruth

    I’m already with PM. It will take a pretty significant deal to pull me away from the $12/month I currently pay with referrals and discounts. Unlimited province wide calling, unlimited global text and 12GB data over 90 days.

    I see they have the 9Gb+3Gb bonus for 90 days, for $141
    Is the 3Gb bonus data permanent (as long as you subscribe to the plan), or is it only a one time bonus?

    • nekkidtruth

      I don’t see anything to indicate it’s a one time bonus. As with nearly all other PM offers, as long as you’re subscribed to the plan you should be good to go.
