    How is Xplore Mobile?

    Anyone here on Xplore Mobile? Once my contract is done I'm thinking of switching providers and going month-to-month. Hows the service?
    Man gets hit by Brick Phone! Ouch!

    I'd be cautious. They have less than 20 sites deployed in all of Manitoba, and currently are permitted to roam on BellMTS, but it won't be forever.

    Bell will also provide Xplornet with key services including expedited access to Bell’s towers in Manitoba for five years, temporary access to a mobile wireless network in a specified territory in Manitoba for three years, support for wireless handset procurement for five years and certain negotiated mobile wireless roaming services for five years.

    Was walking through that underground mall thingy at portage and main yesterday, the poor guy working at the xplor mobile place looked so bored. Both times we walked by there was nobody in the store.

    I never see anyone in any of their stores either. I have a former coworker who works at of them, if I see him working I'll ask them how they're doing, but it doesn't seem like anyone *wants* to join them. Their plans are alright but the 5GB BYOD plan should be at least 8GB at that price to compete with Koodo's non-advertised 8GB/$45 plan.

    Well I have a friend who was recently on Xplore until he moved overseas. He was satisfied with the service every time I talked to him. They have a $45. I noticed on Xplore's website they removed Winnipeg as being in their native coverage area, now just focusing in Brandon, Neepawa and Dauphin. They announced an Unlimited (25GB + 2GB off network) data plan for $85/mo recently ($45 in the three communities if they have Xplorenet already) but everything seems very vague.. like if you go off network to somewheres like Portage or Winnipeg and go over the 2GB out-of-network threshold, do you get charged, or is it just throttled? The media release is very vague about everything.
