Mobilicity has revised their talk and text plans, making them substantially more appealing.

The $25/month plan now includes text & picture messaging, local calling, caller ID, and Mobilicity to Mobilicity calling.

The $35/month plan adds voicemail, call waiting, call forwarding,
3 way calling, and province-wide long distance.

The $45/month plan adds Canadian and US long distance and global text messaging.

Unlimited data can be added to any of these plans for $10/month (or $20 for BIS).

This means that an unlimited local talk, text, and data plan can be had through Mobilicity for $35/month.

Expect details on launches in Edmonton, Vancouver, and Ottawa this week.

Is this enough to draw anyone into Mobilicity?

In addition to announcing new voice plans, the company cut the price of its Unlimited Internet Access plan from $40 to $20 per month when bundled with a Mobilicity voice plan.

So what am I missing? Isn't "unlimited internet access plan" essentially "unlimited data"? Put another way, if I need a voice plan to get the $20 "unlimited internet access plan", why wouldn't I just add the $10 "unlimited data" to that voice plan instead?

Unlimited data ($10 add on) is for smartphones. Unlimited internet access ($20 if you have a voice plan otherwise $40) is for laptops (using a data stick).

If you buy the unlimited Internet you get a second SIM for use in a data stick and possibly faster speeds.

Wind data is much more expensive but I believe it's also notably faster. I think Mobilicity also has some ambiguous rules about tethering.

Maybe. They have a much more aggressive roll-out strategy so they'll likely use their wider presence to their advantage. They also seem to be using short-term promotions to entice new customers over long-term lowest prices.

The low/half price promos are most likely to get as many customers as possible signed up before Mobilicity and Public expand, especially in Western Canada.
