Fyi there's a $100 Visa prepaid card offer on the mobile site. Doesn't show up on the main website though.

There has to be an error. It shows up in mobile (the $100 visa card deal but no black friday deal) but on desktop (black friday deal, no visa card).

https://www.virginplus.ca/en/internet/index.html

Either way I ended up signing up. $40/mth, 12 mth deal but no contract, waived install fee and a $50 Visa prepaid card. The rep did it for me so it's possible.

Their offer has a strange footnote:
Prices may increase during subscription.

It says that on all their marketing. Seems it's a legal thing? Maybe someone who's had them for a while can attest to price changes.

What the reference was to "not available in QC" was for this offer. I have the exact same offers as you. Max 50M service @ $45/m and will surely go up after first year like usual and have to talk to them every year to neotiate. No patience for Bell tactics. I swore off all Bell products many years ago. Only time I will consider ever taking another Bell service is the day they decide to offer FTTH in my area, with a decent price. But I'm sure unlimited 5G internet will be available before Bell decided to do that.

For now, I will stick to my 100M plan with Fizz for $50/m and no price changes/hikes as long as I don't make changes in my plan.

They would be cannabilizing their own bell business. It’s the same service, artificially slowed .

Cancel, and within a day you will get an email to call them. They will offer it then

That's not strange. That's just Bell warning you of the inevitable.

The way most of these Promos work (with Bell), is they show you the base price, and then all the discounts applied to come down to the $40 price tag you signed up for. However the only thing that is guaranteed for the year are your discounts. So if their base price goes up by $5/m, then so does your price. The discounts are still intact, but they are discounts off the base price which DOES go up. And once our year is up, you need to call them every year, to "try" to negotiate a new discount. I have no patience to call them every year. So I just went elsewhere, where I don't need to argue every year.

Yup.. 100% correct.

They did that to me 7 or 8 years ago (maybe more) when I canceled my landline and ported it to a VoIP provider. I had called to renew a discount and fix a recurring static issue on my phone line every time it was raining/wet. They could not help with the discount this time around, and told me it would take 4 to 5 day to get a tech to check out the line. Oh and let's not forget the usual speach about "if the issue is with internal wiring, you will be charged, blah, blah, blah". Well Kind of pointless for tech to come in 4 or 5 days, if it is not raining and there is no more static. They said it is the best they can do. So I hung up, and initiated a number transfer to my already existing VoIP service. Next morning Bell called me wondering "why I was porting out and if I authorized the transfer ?". Told them to just read their notes and yes it was authorized. Then they asked if they gave me the $18/m discount I had before and send a technician before end of the day, if I'd consider staying. I told them "NO", and to put me on their do not call list :) That was my last Bell service, and don't regret it.

oh damn, i just signed-up this morning, but missed the $50 credit card offer. hope the other RFD'ers can capatalize on this -- that's value bruh.

Hate to cancel my Teksavvy cable 25 service, as they have been responsive and reliable over the years. But dude, I was paying like almost $70 taxes in. I had called in for retentions but was told $10 off per month, for the next 6 months was all they could do.

I'll walk you through my Virgin 50 Home Internet sign-up process from this morning..... Here's how it went down:
  • started off with a chat session on Virgin website
  • girl (or young lady is more appropriate these days??) on the chat session was helpful in answering my questions
  • She double-confirmed with me that this will not be the old DSL technology, but will be the latest and greatest fibre. a tech will be dispatched to my place to conduct the work.
  • next step in the process was i had received a phone call from the Virgin sales rep
  • asked for my credentials and email address
  • received email with a URL, with instructions to enter my driver's license for credit check
  • technician installation appointment was setup, surprisingly lots of available time slots even for early next week!
  • proceeded with the 'schpiel' and received a number of email confirmations from Virgin
  • interesting that no credit card information has been provided to date, I guess that will be coming up at some point
We all know that it's only a matter of time before BHell/Virgin start jacking up the price again. My strategy for cheap internet will be to cycle between promotions in the coming years, alternating between fibre and cable, to minimize outage downtime.
Let's get rich together on RFD. Stay positive, stay frugal. 😃

It may not be the old DSL, but it is probably not FTTH (Fiber-to-the-Home) either. Do they offer Gigabit Fibe in your area ? If not, then it is surely not FTTH. it is probably FTTN (Fibre to the neighbourhood/node). From the Node (wherever it is located) it is just a standard copper line to your home.

just out of curiousity, i checked my chat history with the CSR lady. she's saying that i'm getting FTTH.

that's the good stuff right? i actually never looked up the difference or done any research on this.

If that is truly what you are getting, then YES, that is great, and the cleanest connection you can get from Bell.
IF you check on what is available in your AREA (with Virgin and Bell), what is the highest speed that is listed for your address ? Just curious. If Gigabit Fiber is not listed, then I doubt it will be FTTH.

Guess you'll find out soon enough, if you get Fiber cable or a copper Cable into your home :)

I have virgin they only have FTTN here and I can't even get 50mbps on their internet so I settled for 25mbps. Otherwise I'd be paying for 50 and getting 37mbps.

Can this internet work without active phone line? Last time I had bell internet which was years ago, the modem needed to be plugged in a phone line.
