[Virgin Mobile] Virgin Internet $40 50/10 or $45 100/10

Virgin Mobile is running as 12-month credit promotion

25/10 is $40 after $20CR
50/10 is $40 after $30CR
100/10 is $45 after $35CR

Since this is only discount protected, if the base price changes, the final price will too. Looks like base rates were increased by $10 within the last week.

Bell wants me to pay $30 more per month from 50/10 service, with this offer I can get a new line for $5 more.
Which modem are they sending out? I had major problems with the Home Hub 2000, it's really under powered for today's standards.

25 and 50 are HH2000; 100 is HH3000

I have my router connected via PPPoE to the HH2000 and its been stable

FYI I was an existing subscriber on 50/10 and paid $40 (old $60 rate less $20CR). I was able to call and "upgrade" to the $35 plan ($70 base less $35CR). The rep was unsure if my $60 base would have increased to $70 eventually.

They confirmed my 1-year credit timeline was reset to today.

The rate increase was effective March 4.

Yeah your router is doing all the work so that's the only work-around. My HH2000 was at 100% CPU all day ... Anyway, thanks for the post.

I'm a current customer. paying $60 for 50/10. Called was told that 100/10 wasn't avaliable in my area. Asked if I could get the 50/10 deal. They said no.

I think I'm just going to call back later, cancel my service and sign my wife up.

I think the correct answer depends whether you're in a VDSL area or FTTH area. It should be HH2000 for VDSL and HH3000 for fiber.

I have only had cable internet (other than dial-up). I assume this is DSL. Do I need additional "dry-loop" fees or anything like that? Can I put their provided modem/router into bridge mode and just use my own equipment?

Yes Bell is DSL; either FTTN or FTTH. No dry loop fees.

The HH2000 I have has no bridge mode, but I can connect via PPPoE into a LAN port. This seems to have disabled DHCP on the modem, so its just as good as bridge mode.

Ditto. I'm paying $57 all-in for 100/30 but feel like I can do better.
Hard work, inheritance, interest on interest accumulating, and stock and real estate speculation. It's all good.

Just got off the phone with a representative from Virgin.
He did a follow-up call with me from yesterday and said an amazing deal just came up today; flash deal!

Home Internet
100mbps download
10mbps upload
Unlimited usage

No additional costs for modem, installation and activation.
Reg price $80
Discount $40 (50%)
Final price $40 for 12 months

It's a month to month deal; however, he guaranteed me that even if the price increases during the year, the final price of $40 is locked in for me for 12 months. Not an official contract, but just for the final price, kind of like a contract.

A Mbps is a Mbps. So the closest to 75/10 is both 50/10 or 100/10.

I do find Rogers with Speedboost provides a bit better speed for the first few seconds of download, before it drops close to whatever you paid for.

That said, I had 25/10 and had zero issues with the speed. Large downloads are of course slower but I can wait. Streaming 4k on Bell is generally better than Rogers due to the CDN issue.

What number did you use? I am just with them on the phone and they cant provide the "upgrade". They offered me $20 off though from my existing plan.

No. I told them exactly what I was going to do and they were actually helpful in cancelling and starting a new service.
