Seems like a good rebate but do your own research if it's a good router.

Before someone asks,
If BestBuy is selling hardware version 1.0
Then
Currently, there is partial support by OpenWrt.
The OpenWrt firmware(s) for MT7621/MT7615N SoC routers has frequent complaints of 5 GHz WiFi disconnects, the last several months.
No idea if/when disconnect problem will be fixed.
The 2.4 GHz appears to work fine.

No OpenWrt support listed for hardware version 2.0

Virgin uses the same hardware as bell (I.e HH 3000) it's possible but virgin/bell equipment is more complicated as it doesn't support bridge mode (someone can correct me if I'm wrong). However I looked into this when I had bell/virgin and it seemed like a long process.
