Current plans are all pretty garbage. $45 for 2GB is insane. I have $40 for 6GB LTE, unlimited talk/text with Koodo currently (Public Mobile switchover promo). There was also that $50 10GB LTE plan last year too.
Fortunately, none of these plans are locked in contracts (I'm bringing my own device) so I'd be able to switch at any time a better deal comes along.

The biggest thing for me is the unlimited canada wide talk. I've seen a few slightly better deals but they've all been a limited amount of talk minutes.

Eastlink is out.... they claim that their LTE service will only work on phones provided by them (and either don't know, or won't provide the info on what bands they need).

I may go with that 3G one for now as it seems to me it was only $40 / 2GB.
