Even if they just bumped it up to 30Mbps to match Rogers' best offering to most people. 10Mbps doesn't quite cut it for a WFH family.

Only company that has never increased my price has been Koodo, been with them for over 10 years. Just called in about this deal and I had logged into my account before hand to check my info and noticed that my bill was going to go up by $2.50 this month!!! I pay $60+ tax for 50/10. I never log in or read the bill because its the same every month preauthorized. Anyways short answer is they will give me a credit of $30 for 12 months on the new price of $62.50 so I will pay $32.50+ tax for 12 months, Thanks OP, saved me $350 over 12 months.

Yes it can , no active phone line is needed, just the copper for the dry loop if you don't have fibre to the house.

Didn't even know this speed was an option!
Did you end up taking the offer? Is the speed actually 300/100? Interesting that they are able to offer this. My biggest complaint about Virgin has been the lack of higher upload speeds.

Price changes during an agreement. I can't believe that the public just accepts that. They can raise prices. But if they lower prices and offer and better deal to "new customers", you can't take it. Heavy leverage on their part.

Who is the responsible for this monopoly on both gsm and home internet? The prices are crazy high yet the speeds are real low.

I agree it's scummy. At least there's no contract involved but it's still terrible.

It works fine. Zoom/gaming/wyze cams doesn't require much upstream.

I think this must be quite YMMV. I am in Montreal (plateau) and I see a 100/10 service for $55, which is what I always see. I'd jump on 40$ at 100Mbps. I wonder if they'd have any promotions for me, since I'm also a V+ phone user.

Does anyone in Montreal have any experience with Virgin (VDSL) internet compared to cable? I've been using Videotron resellers for years, but it was much better out in NDG than where I am in the Plateau.

I had 100/10 for 50$, just called in and could lower the existing to match the promo; now it's 35 for 100/10
ask for a loyalty rep if you have +12month with them, they can give you the offer, that's what the rep told me.

nope, no extra modem rental charge. check out the detailed itemized billing info received via email upon sign-up confirmation.

Is Virgin usually easy to get discounts again when your promotional pricing is done? I believe Bell itself is a pain and Rogers can be hit or miss. I'm not a fan of having to switch providers every 12 months but if Virgin makes it easy to get another 12 months of discounts every year it might be worth considering.

Well they play with the words in the agreement and don't even make it 100% clear up front. They don't guarantee the price, they guarantee you "discount" for the agreement period. That's how they get away with it.
They are the sleeziest company I have ever had the unfortunate opportunity to do business with. When our government was investigating construction companies, they should have included Bell. Their schemes are more elaborate. And having ex-telecom executives who are responsible for the CRTC oversight of these companies doesn't really help much. Far from being an independent oversight body, when every decision they make will affect their buddies that they go golfing with.

Bell website says "While fibre doesn’t go right to your home, it reaches the neighbourhood". is it still worth to switch? I am considering 100/10. I am with Rogers now.
