I think Australia is a great comparison -- similar population density, similar dollar value, etc.

Telstra over there offers:

• 30 GB for $49/mth (Unlimited national talk & text),
• 60 GB for $59/mth (Unlimited national talk & text. Unlimited international talk & text to 15 selected countries.)
It is all about competition or lack of it in this country. Never mind data cost, we still have carriers offering calling plans with features like local calling or province wide calling only.
Koodo $40/6GB
Public Mobile 2016 fall promo, $23/1GB, $38/5GB
Fido $0.00/3GB+tablet

If I get a virgin prepaid and then move to postpaid, will I be able to port in another number to replace the new number with virgin ?

Having just been in Australia, I agree with the original post this ^^ one is referring to. I got a 20 GB, 30 day prepaid sim plan for $25 (regular price $40) but I bought from one of the main network providers... had I gone to a reseller like Amaysim, probably could've gotten it cheaper.

And Australia is similar to Canada with having just 3 main networks that then have resellers on them: Optus, Telstra and Vodafone. Similar to us. It's quite annoying how cheap cellphone service was there compared to here and it made no sense to pay for roaming when I could just buy a prepaid sim card for peanuts.

Ugh. :|

expiry is it really unknown? At least ball park like one or 2 wks? I just want to optimize my switching date. I believe my renewal or withdraw date is 22nd.

We have 2.5 real carriers in Canada. Bell and Telus are so much in bed that it is hard to differentiate them as two truly independent brands. Any time that one carrier decides to do something, there is full consultation with the other to make sure nobody is caught off guard. Notice how when one carrier announced the price increase on the $60/10GB plan, the other carriers were quick to offer a price increase as well.

So just to confirm, I switch to this tomorrow. What are the chances in 4 months they say sorry the $40/6GB is now $55/6GB?

... Have you been to Europe? Again very high population density.
And don't bring up the reason? ...What?
You'd rather it be a conspiracy... Ok then.
In the UK for example, there are so many MVNO who use others major cellphone providers infrastructure to provide cheap and reliable cellphone plans across the UK.

In Canada, Rogers, Bell or Telus would not allow MNVO's to use their networks at a cheap cost. That is why we need government to force them.

Has anyone successfully transferred to the unlimited $30 T&T/2gb plan? I am a prepaid Virgin client for years but called a couple of times and the CSR said the only plan available was the $40/Unlimited T&T 4gb plan. I would only use a smaller amounts of data a month.

I checked like 8 different virgin accounts and not a single one of those numbers populated any migration plans. Only Lucky numbers are showing the plans

Was able to get the $40 deal at Wal-Mart. Took them a while to find the deal as they didn't listen to me at first when I said they had to put in my Lucky Mobile number.
