The plans aren't "terrible" at all. Koodo, $70 (on Medium Tab) for 1 GB. Rogers, $90 for 1 GB.
Hope that helps!

Agreed with JeremyESQ. Mind you, Public Mobile is pre-paid only. This means no credit checks, and won't help build your credit rating, either.
Anyone may have their reasons for going pre-paid vs. post-paid.
Koodo is great for single line customers staying for three months or several years. For a 24 month period, you might get slightly cheaper with Virgin and Fido. You might get cheaper with Virgin & Fido if you have 2-3 lines. If you have 3-5 lines, you might get cheaper on Rogers/Bell/Telus given that they have shared plans.
Cellular reception is good. Get LTE advanced out West on the Telus network. For Eastern Canada, you'll get LTE advanced with Bell/Virgin (primarily GTA plus odd pockets like Sherbrooke, QC). If you're in a dead zone with no reception on Koodo, you probably won't get cell coverage with a competitor, either.
Customer service is OK. One thing that ticks me off is that Koodo makes it extremely painful to pay a post-paid account through pre-paid credit cards. The same pre-paid cards can work flawlessly with the other guys. Btw, Koodo caps overpaying your post-paid bill by a max of 20%. The other guys don't do that.
Each carrier has its perks in terms of phone promos. If you're into Moto by Lenovo phones, Koodo/Telus is your best bet. Rogers/Fido often leverages great promos on LG's, and Bell/Virgin is often the only place to get Sony's (aside little guys like Freedom Mobile).
Because I like Moto phones, I acquire them all from Koodo. Unlock codes for two or three bucks on eBay, as well as great promos on new activations and sometimes on upgrades. I also enjoy the self-serve options.
