[Virgin Mobile] Virgin Internet 100/10 $70 + $150 Bill credit

Not as hot as the 50% off but if you need internet TODAY and you don't want cable and you cant get DSL its not a bad deal.

100/10 Mbps
Free modem
Free install
$150 bill credit depending on how you look at it its equal to to 2 free months or $12.50 off per month

Know how this compares to Bell? How does one know whether this can be installed on their property?

I can't use Rogers as the line running under the lawn needs to be replaced.

When does this expire?

Is this the annual back to school (BTS) promotion this year? Or do you think the 50% off deal will come soon?

There is a big difference between FTTH and FTTN.

FTTH is the way to go if you can get it.

Enter your address into the Bell website. If you can get 50/50, it's FTTH.

Every Virgin install is FTTH? I thought FTTH is only available in some locations.

A friend of mine lives in North York and can only get Bell high-speed through bonded phone lines.

I'm in Toronto's High Park area and there are a tonne of copper lines.

FTTH makes sense if there is no pre-existing infrastructure.

When can you cancel the earliest and get the credit ?

Edit: second or third bill you will get the credit and maybe apply it to that month and the month after. So might be that you can cancel on the 4th or 5th month.
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

My experience trying to sign up with virgin internet:

1. Call #1 to sign up. Virgin rep's computer shuts down by accident and I have to tell him all my info again, after he did the credit check already on me. While giving all the info again, the line disconnects with the rep and he never calls back.

2. Call #2, several days later. Got a new Virgin Rep on the line. She apologized for the previous experience and gave a discount for 1 month. Set up installation date, did credit check and took all details again.

3. Call #3, installation date. No one showed up. I called into Virgin again and the rep said I was never entered into the system for an installation and there are no orders under my name. I will have to give my info ALL over again. At that point I just told them to forget it and I will never bother with any of their services again.

DONT DO IT!!!

Stay away from Virgin internet and save yourself the hassle!!!

I have spent over 5 hours on the phone with them over the last 3 days since having service installed. Paying for 100. Lucky if I get 60. Not only that, a rep offered me virgin TV for 15$ a month. Yet not one person from any department can actually apply the offer. I was literally advised to “try signing up for it at full price” then call back and we will see “if” we can offer anything at that point. Talk about a shady company.

I have even tried to cancel my service. Hahah good lucky. They have been transferring me and putting me on hold the last hour.

They couldn’t offer me free service for a year to keep me at this point.

**** Virgin Mobile.

I'm pretty sure Virgin is FTTN and not FTTH.

To get the 100/10 line you would have to qualify for the 50/10 line then they will pair bond both pairs of copper lines to your house to get 100mbit. Outside of Virgin only Bell can do that. All other resellers can only offer 50/10 max on FTTN.

Yes, it's the same thing. Bell owns Virgin.
