    freedom started having call quality issues - switched to PM and saved about 120$ per year.

    Nice to have caller name ID as well now (instead of just a number).

    I've been with public mobile for a while now on the 4GB at 3G Speed $30.
    Honestly its pretty freaking awesome. I rarely burn that much data and you only need LTE speeds when your watching youtube or trying to hotspot. For audio streaming and looking at reddit its totally decent.

    They really F*D up the advertising calling it "3G". Its still a low latency LTE connection just throttled throughput. You only notice on large bandwidth things.

    Telus knows what it's doing with that advertising.

    Anyone else on public mobile notice the charge on their cc statement says “koodo top up reapprov”? Signed my mom up for it in December so maybe it’s just the first one that has a weird merchant name?

    Brand new line not ported from Koodo or any other carrier.

    The phone companies have given up any semblance of acting separate from their smaller carriers. Called Telus to re-negotiate my parents phone plans and Telus said flat out they don't offer anything below 80$ a month anymore and if I wanted to go cheaper I should switch their phones to koodo. Was rather surprised to hear it said outright. Told them I'd rather switch to rogers since Telus will call for a winback deal of 45$/20gb. After he disappeared on hold he came back with 70$/month / 20gb for their new Can-US plan which means no roaming at all for my parents in the US. Considering they spend the entire winter down there that was a huge win. So dumb of these games though.

    No, mine still show as public mobile. But Telus owns Koodoo and Public both, so i could see the payment name being any of those, since it's all the same company.

    The telecoms play a lot of games, and it's brutal. Have I mentioned that the reason I love Public is because they have no customer service? That's my favourite feature of that sub-brand.

    Yup. The CRTC forces them to offer "Low cost" plans. So they make Koodoo and Public with plans to meet those requirements. BUT then spend 0$ advertising it so people will still flock to the main Telus brand which is $$$. Such is life in Canadian telecom..
