24 Mar 2014

Small cellco Public Mobile, a subsidiary of nationwide Canadian operator Telus, has announced that it will shut down its CDMA-based network covering Montreal, Toronto and surrounding areas in May this year, and migrate all users to its parent’s GSM/W-CDMA/HSPA/LTE network. In a notice for its subscribers on its website, Public warns users that in May they will need a new phone compatible with the Telus network to continue receiving services. It is offering a discount on the handset purchase for existing customers, whilst all its tariff plans are changing in May.
