I just got back from a Mobilicity media event at a karaoke bar in Pacific Mall. They just launched their Ethnic themed portal for their users which has Asian and South Asian themed content. They also launched their Chinese name. Watch the video to see how to pronounce it.
Public Mobile, Canada’s new mobile start up, has just refreshed their rate plans. A posting on the company blog explains the changes.
Public Mobile now have updated plans, adding more value to the $40 unlimited talk and text plan, and adding an unlimited talk plan for only $24. Our updated $40 unlimited talk and text plan now includes voicemail and call display, plus, if you don’t feel you’ll use the text part of the plan, you can trade it for unlimited Canadian long distance. Our new $24 plan includes unlimited talk with call waiting, call forwarding and conference calling, great for those who just want to call and talk. And without credit checks, contracts or surprises.
While I personally think it was too soon for Public Mobile to change their rate plans it is nice to see a company reacting to the competition and their customer’s suggestions.
