My bell internet promo is ending this month. Thinking about this or Carrytel.

Basically Bell and Rogers are adding internet service to Virgin and Fido?

I hope they will have similar offers like this one for Quebec soon. My parents really need it, they have a too-slow dsl connection

Ontario only!
Was interested in what their back-end is. Dug up some details:

“Home Internet by Virgin Mobile is fibre-powered and currently available to existing eligible Virgin Mobile Members within the network footprint.” The company further specified that it was available in the fibre network footprint in Ontario only.

Perhaps reselling Bell Fibe?

I am afraid their pricing/discount strategy is going to be the same as Bell.... keep the discount for 2 yrs but raise the base price multiple times later. Angry Face

$45 for 24 months then $50 is nice, but restricted to Virgin Mobile customers in Ontario. TekSavvy offers something similar with no restrictions. For example in Toronto area they offer this 25/10 speed with 150 GB cap for $42, or 400 GB for $49, or unlimited for $59. But note that they never meter uplink data, and they don't meter downlink between 2:00 AM and 8:00 AM so you can schedule your big downloads to run overnight for essentially unlimited data anyway.

See what they offer in your province/area here: https://teksavvy.com/en/residential/internet/dsl

I'm using the $42 150 GB since Feb. 2015 and it's been fast, reliable, and the one time I had an issue their tech support was very good.
Note that if you don't already have a land line you need to add a dry-loop for another $5/month, which I suspect is the same with any ISP, as it's the nature of DSL.

i am using teksavvy now, but i think teksavvy is more expensive than this one. You have to either rent or buy a modem/router with teksavvy.
However, i am going to switch to virgin yet even though i use their phone service. Imo $45 for 2 years is not worth for me to switch.

Nothing exists outside Toronto! It's all a void. It breaks down like this; "Toronto, avoid"

Tempting to switch, I like that the modem is basically free and included in the price and that theres no install fee...compared to others where you buy the $100+ modem and pay at least $50 to install. Its not a world beating deal but a fair price.
