I can't speak for Mobilicity, but Public Mobile has been doing pretty darned well for themselves... More than half as many customers as Wind despite spending a fraction as much money (due to 90% lower spectrum costs).
Won't matter if they can't sustain the growth because they'll need continued revenue to invest in the network and buying power for handsets. A lot of the carriers are smart for making offers for high end handsets and selling higher end plans as that supports the network expansion and new cell technology.
Might not be much growth opportunity in the lower price plans, certainly didn't help Fido in the end.
