Very good service for my family

I have used Wind Mobile (Freedom Mobile now) for 2 years and moved to Public Mobile. Main reason was national coverage. One drawback is Provincial call plan I chose, but when I buy International Long Distance add-on, it solved. Price, coverage, LTE data speed and quality, I like all of it.

Good but not perfect

The pricing and plans are great. Cheaper than anyone, coast to coast coverage and no overuse charges (data/long distance). You get to use what you paid for and can't go over that limit.

One draw back is that you can never call/text a US number but really how many times do I have to?

You may see people complaining about horrible customer service having to email/use to forums to solve an issue but this is a No Frills company. They are owned by Telus but we are not paying Telus prices. You are able to talk to a customer rep but it's a little bit of a work around. Most of your common problems and solutions can be found on the forums.

Another Bonus I received is $10 off per month for 12 months for signing during Beta. Also if you sign up for Auto pay you get an extra $2 credit on your bill. This may not seem like a lot but with my plan it means I get 1 month free use this year.

One current issue is that they charged me twice in 1 month for the service. Which they quickly caught refunded me and sent a free movie pass as make up for it. We are doing Beta testing so issues are bound to happen.

Overall I have to rate this company as good. Don't listen to others reviews who expect "top quality" service while paying cheap prices. I went from paying $1980 a year to Rogers for 2 cell phones to paying $720. So for $1260 I can deal with a few headaches.

Very Poor - Waste of Time & Money

Yes it has telus coverage in canada however there is zero customer service and hugely limited international calling/texting abilities (only a few countries available). I have switched out after 34 days.
