Cell plans

The plan for the phones I use in my company is soon due for renewal.
I believe my current plan provides 2 g data per phone, unlimited na calling and texting plus the regular call displays and voice mails. I'm paying a bit under 65 per phone that includes the supply of new s6's and just under 45 for the lines that didn't receive new hardware.
This was on a 24 month obligation that's almost at an end.
I won't be upgrading any hardware at this time, so at the most I'll be paying is 45 ish per line if I renew with the same cell peeps. I don't see it increasing.
Anyone have a corporate plan that costs less, and if so how much and thru who.
I'm looking for a direction to launch my inquiries, I'm not interested in calling every call center on the planet trying to negotiate with another language to save a buck a phone.
Lol. I'm so cheap. However, I doubt I'll save much but it's worth asking.

I've been using a company called public mobile for a while. They don't provide hardware at all. I pay about $35 a month, though I've opted for a pay every third month plan that gets me 6gb and unlimted everything else over 3 months for about $135 each billing cycle.

I've had no problems with them at all they're awesome and I'll never go back to using one of the big companies.

MrBrocks,

I was just looking at Public Mobile - thanks for the review. I think I am going to sign up with them. If Castanet has a private message system and you would like, you can send me your cell number and I will use it when I sign up so you get a referral credit (I think it is $1 off per month/$3 per 90 day, but it adds up).

Took a look and checkout who owns them, Telus owns it. Since Telus has excellent coverage out west & uses Bell cell towers back east (so very good nationwide coverage).
Something to keep in mind
