Virgin Mobile, the 'cool' brand of Bell Mobility for the Millenial generation entered in the Home Internet wagon. It follows the steps of rivals like Kodoo (Telus) and Fido (Rogers). Virgin Mobile Home Internet offer is very much the same, you get a data only subscription with a wireless router that uses a SIM card, same as the one that goes into mobile phones or tablets.
Let us now focus on our review the different plans and prices from Virgin Mobile Home Internet.
- 5 Mbps Down, 1 Mbps Upload, 50 GB Usage @ $35/mo
- 25 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Upload, Unlimited @ $50/mo
- 50 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Upload, Unlimited @ $60/mo
- 100 Mbps Down, 10 Mbps Upload, Unlimited @ $70/mo
Modem and Installation are included. The current promotion, available only for residents in Ontario, is for the 50 Mbps plan at $30/mo for the first 12-months. Virgin Mobile also 'warms' that price may increase during the subscription. The way to understand that is that Virgin Mobile is saying they will hike up the rate and then they will say "told you so"!
The plans in itself aren't all that bad, offering a good mix of Download speed and upload. The fact these are running on the back of Bell's LTE network is good comfort. Though is ironic the Virgin Mobile Home Internet advertises a 10 Mbps Upload though they do disclose that most of Virgin "members" get 7.5 Mbps Upload. Then why not to just say it is 7.5 Mbps Upload then? In any event however cool it may look to be a member of Virgin Mobile Home Internet, remember Ma Bell is behind and you can expect it's influencing via contracts and annual prices hike up.
