Richmond Hill & Vaughan Coming Soon

April 14, 2011,

Toronto

Public Mobile's unlimited talk and text service is now available in Markham and will be available in Richmond Hill and Vaughan in early May.  Since its initial launch in Toronto last summer, Public Mobile has been working to expand network service throughout the area.  Network coverage in the Greater Toronto area now stretches from Hamilton to Oshawa. 

On March 31st, 2011 Public Mobile announced Unlimited Province-Wide Talk for $15 per month, a move that is expected to shake up the Canadian telecom industry and make home phones and prepaid cards a thing of the past.  "Why would anyone want to continue paying for costly home phones or the high cost of prepaid wireless rates, when they can talk all they want for $15 a month?" said Alek Krstajic, CEO of Public Mobile.

"Canadians have been paying crazy prices for years, and we're saying that's over now.  Public Mobile wants to give people in Ontario and Quebec simplicity, fairness and value," added Krstajic. 

Public Mobile has 82 exclusive stores in Ontario and 48 exclusive stores in Quebec.  In total, Public Mobile's unlimited network now covers approximately 8 million people.

Public Mobile offers unlimited, flat rate plans starting at $15 per month – that's the lowest monthly price available for unlimited talk.  Public Mobile customers can also use their phones from coast to coast.  Public Mobile offers the lowest price in Canada for roaming at just 15 cents per minute.  When roaming, outgoing text messages are 15 cents each and incoming text messages are free.  And later this month, Public Mobile will launch $5 unlimited email service along with its first wireless data device, the BUZZ.  Public Mobile set out to change Canadian telecommunications by building a company with a demonstrable and sustainable cost advantage, and then passes these savings onto customers in the form of Simplicity, Fairness and Value – innovative concepts for the Canadian telecommunications industry.
