I did the 100/$45 plan a few months ago and it's been consistently fast... 120-130 mbps depending on device.

Also, whatever the increase in price was for full price (went from $70 to $80 reg price), my bill is still $45 + tax.

I was on 100/ 10, speed never reach 80, mostly 60-78, every month they charged me in full price, I had to call and ask for my credit and they are like this is normal.. I'll try my best to pass Virgin poor service.

For the 100 mbps plan, do they HAVE to come into the house to install the fibre optic cable?

Yes they did. Guy had a mask on, no biggie. I previously had cable internet, he brought the wiring from the box, on the pole and fed the wiring through the original hole. Setup the wall plate and booted up the modem. Voila, done. Took about an hour in total.

Nothing to do with the 100Mbps plan specifically, if they are installing FTTH they have to come in.

But even if you did not get Bell FTTH, this Virgin deal gives you (a) free FTTH install, and (b) fibre connection from Bell's optical fibre termination point to your house. The fibre taps aren't scarce, but neither is it one-to-one for all homes in your neighbourhood. One free install will set you up for another 20 years.
Do they really give you a free FTTH install? Wouldn't it be cheaper for them to just set you up with FTTN?
I checked my new address on Bell's site, and got this message - "Great news! We bring fibre straight to your home."

Assuming the place doesn't already have FTTH installed, would they really install it for free?

It costs Bell to keep the old POTS lines up and running, so they will generally prefer to install FTTH if it's deployed to your neighbourhood.

For me they had to dig a new POTS line since it had degraded so much that it couldn't support FTTN. Since FTTH is still not available in my neighbourhood that was their only choice.

Bell, like all telephone companies, wants POTS gone. Spend a little today to avoid spending on an obsolete technology tomorrow? Sounds like a good plan IMHO.

Why is this thread expired? Isn’t the deal live? In Ontario it is.

Thanks for this thread! I'm an existing customer, had tried to get a promotion applied a couple months ago, no luck. Tried again with this one and the agent gave me the same price without having to do the connect/disconnect dance. Happy!

Sorry if I missed it, but does this mean Virgin will install FTTH even in Quebec (Montreal)? Seeing mostly ON posters here.

Does anyone know if the upload speed is higher if you have bell fibre already? I know the DSL line is 100/10 for Bell and Virgin but I was wondering if Virgin does 100/100 if your connection is fibre?

AFAIK, Bell is the only one providing 100/100. All his resellers including Virgin will give only 100/10.

Ah that is too bad...I guess I will need to try and negotiate something with bell because the upload helps for work. Sucks that you have fibre but they will limit the upload but it makes sense.

Thanks for the info!
