Nothing, it's the same price, just a 1.5GB upgrade to data.

edit: Best part was the ability to accept the change in plan, but not have it kick in until the current billing period ends.

And now it's 4.5GB... :)

Looks like PM is aggressively targeting the $45/4GB plans from last month.

Gotta love not being on a contract.

Hopefully they let you switch over. At least that's slowly getting back to where it should be, though at the loss of LTE.

3G isn't really accurate... it's LTE, but throttled down to 3.5 mbps. Slow(ish) speeds but less lag than actual 3G.

Well that was short lived.... :)

In the space of 2 1/2 months I went from a $40 Public Mobile 2.5GB (LTE lite) UL Canadian Talk & International Text Prepaid account, to a 4GB the next month, and then 4.5GB. Now I've just accepted a Koodo postpaid offer of $45 for 8GB LTE UL Canadian Talk & UL International Text.

It's an extra $8 / month but that gets me an extra 3.5GB and bumps me up to full speed as well as offering full CSR if required.

edit: And for anybody who ends up in this thread looking for info... don't forget to check RFD for deals, and don't forget to see if there are benefits for getting a referral..... PM is $10 for both the referrer and the referree (as well as $1/mo credit for the referrer), and often has special deals that sweeten the deal up quite a bit. Koodo has $50 for each ($10/mo over 5 mo) but has to be initiated prior to activating a new koodo account.

Heads up, Public Mobile has been updating their plans almost monthly for a while now, and a new $25 plan has appeared for 1gb of 3g, canada wide calling, voicemail, etc. Any new subs can PM me for a referral number.
