Public Mobile has a done a great job maintaining their line-up of affordable handsets, and now they've added yet another entry-level handset to their inventory. The ZTE C76 is now available from the new entrant carrier, and features a 2" display and bluetooth connectivity. The C76 is about as basic as handsets get, but at just $65 contract-free, it's an affordable solution for those looking for basic talk and text functionality. Head to your nearest Public Mobile retail location to pick one up.

Public Mobile has been slowly expanding coverage areas, and Burlington is the most recently added community to get service from the new-entrant carrier. Along with the network launch, Public Mobile has also opened two new retail stores in the area to serve customers, at 650 Plains Road, and 796 Brant Street. Coverage in the Burlington area "continues from Oakville (Burloak Drive) in the East extending to the border with Hamilton (intersection of Highway 403 and Highway 6). Coverage is available from the lake north to Mainway (East of Guelph Line) and to Highway 403 (West of Guelph Line)." With 10 stores available throughout Oakville, Hamilton, and Burlington, Public Mobile's expansion seems to be going well. Keep growing!

New entrant Mobilicity has just launched their network in two more major cities today, Edmonton and Vancouver, and has officially confirmed the Ottawa launch will take place tomorrow. Along with the launch comes 100 retail outlets throughout Vancouver, and 20 locations in both Edmonton and Ottawa. This makes 5 cities for Mobilicity and should help them grow!

In addition to the new network launches, Mobilicity has also slimmed down their price plan line-up to just 3 packages. None of the price plans come with data, so customers who wish to get data access will have to subscribe to the new $10 data add-on. The 3 new price plans are:

$25/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., and Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling.

$35/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, and Province Wide Long Distance.

$45/monthly: Unlimited Local Calling, Text and Picture Messaging, Caller I.D., Mobilicity to Mobilicity Calling, Voicemail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3 Way Calling, Province Wide Long Distance, Canadian Long Distance, U.S. Long Distance, and Global Text Messaging.

We recently let you know that new entrant Mobilicity confirmed plans to expand to Edmonton and Vancouver in November, and now it seems Ottawa can be added to that list. No word yet on exactly when the networks will go live in any of these 3 cities, but we also received word that Calgary and "southern Ontario" would be coming as well, but at a later time than Edmonton, Vancouver, and Ottawa. Hopefully we'll see these 3 cities go live by November 7th so residents can take advantage of the Friends and Family program that expires on that day. Keep expanding, Mobilicity!

The Canadian new entrants have been making the news a lot lately, which is undoubtedly a good thing for them from a marketing and advertising perspective. Public Mobile has recently extended their Greater Toronto Area coverage zone to include Mississauga, which is great news for both existing customers, and those who live in the area who have may be interested in signing up. In addition to the zone stretch to Mississauga, Public Mobile is apparently working on expanding the network to Brampton by the end of the year as well, reaching even more potential customers and increasing coverage for existing ones. It's always good to see carriers working at offering more to customers, so kudos to Public Mobile on this one!

We know that Mobilicity is planning to launch in additional cities besides Toronto by the end of the year, though no specific dates have been reported as of yet. Thanks to a rumour circulating on the internet recently, it looks like they may be planning to launch in Edmonton in the coming weeks. While the rumour is a bit unconventional compared to most in the wireless industry, this tip-off comes from a Kijiji job posting, with a 3rd party promotional company seeking to hire employees for a "Mobilicity Launch Promotion", where the selected candidates would canvass the streets of Edmonton asking random people to share their "cell phone horror stories", all while dressed up in halloween costumes!

What do you think, is this just an early promotional technique being put in place by Mobilicity, or will the new-entrant expand into Edmonton sometime around Halloween? Let us know in the forums!

Mobilicity is on a roll lately with their discounted handsets, price plans, and add-ons, and now they're offering up an amazing deal for friends and family of their employees. The new program, which is intended for those who know Mobilicity employees, gives users the option between 2 highly discounted plans - the $45 unlimited plan for just $25/month, and the $65 unlimited plan for just $35/month. If you know someone who works for Mobilicity, make sure to get in touch with them and ask about this amazing program, as they're probably the cheapest and most value-filled options available (as long as you're in a Mobilicity coverage zone). With all of these amazing deals, all that's left for the new entrant is expansion into more cities, which we'll hopefully see in the near future.
