  • Network: The Public Mobile network is provided by Telus which means you get LTE service anywhere Telus is available.
  • Coverage: Public Mobile has got you covered on Canada’s largest mobile network. Customers can expect to have quality coverage through the Telus Network from Canadian coast to coast.
  • Where to Buy: New customers will need to use the store locator by selecting their province and city location. From there, Public Mobile will list the closest stores to you! It's super easy.
  • Bring Your Own Phone: Already have your own phone? Simply check the device's IMEI number to make sure it works on the Public Mobile network.
