Lucky Mobile says it has increased the speeds of its 3G plans.
According to a post on its community forum, speeds can now reach up to 10Mbps.
“This means you can stream and video call from your phone in HD without the need for Wi-Fi,” the post reads. Users can access the new speeds by restarting their devices.
3G speeds from the Bell-owned brand were previously a measly 3Mbps.
As iPhone in Canada points out, the brand now matches 3G speeds offered by Rogers-owned Chatr. Both companies also offer 4G speeds up to 150Mbps.
But Telus-owned Public Mobile isn’t on the same page.
The fine print on the company’s website shows 3G plans have a download speed of 3Mbps. Its 4G plans can also only reach up to 100Mbps.
But with Lucky Mobile recently making the change, it’s possible Public Mobile will follow close behind.
