Three months on Mobilicity...

Posted at April 10, 2011

… and I’m reasonably happy.

Mobilicity Telus
~$46 a month ~$68 a month
Unlimited data, which I’m totally using on my shiny new phone Data extra
Unlimited voice Limited number of minutes, then extra charges. Especially for long distance. If it weren’t for skype…
Tiny service area (which, fortunately, I rarely leave) Huge service area
Poor signal inside buildings, almost no signal at work Excellent signal everywhere

Aside from signal issues (and the occasional dead zone, like 29th Ave Station), it’s pretty good. And for the first time in over a decade, I’m not paying Telus money every month. It feels good not to be locked in.
