Virgin Mobile to introduce ‘Diamond’ rate plan tier on March 1st, 2018

Virgin Mobile will unveil a brand new rate plan tier on March 1st, 2018. According to internal documents obtained by MobileSyrup, Virgin’s new ‘Diamond’ rate plan will enable subscribers to “pay less for a hot new smartphone.” The Diamond plan will not be available for new activations; only existing Virgin subscribers will be able to sign up for the plan. The plan itself will be available across Canada for hardware upgrades, and eligibility for the Diamond plan is determined based on subscriber credit.

So basically, with top end smartphones now trending towards the $1500 mark, they basically want some plans that let people subsidize more of that amount? The platinum plans are already $120 a month for a 4GB plan, so I'm guessing we'll be looking at $150 or so a month on the diamond plans.

Face With Tears Of Joy These plans will cost $10/month more than their Platinum plans. The same as Fido Extra Large. Both are the same as ROBELUS' most expensive Plus plans, except theirs are available to new customers.

Discount carriers getting even more expensive? Whats the point? Why not just go for the main carrier? The whole point of sub-brands is going downhill. And freedom mobile's $90 plans for getting flagships on a tab. When will this stop?
Koodo $40 13GB!
