Other than slightly higher latency, what would be the downside? There's likely less downtime with cell towers too.
Does Bell/Virgin block ports? I'd assume no static IP but then Bell nor Rogers does that for residential customers anyway.

I don't quite follow? isn't this just Bell's twisted pair being re-sold under their child company?
What does this have to do with latency (in comparison to what?) or cell towers?

Guess he assumed it'd be delivered over wireless and not landlines.

I'd prefer that and would consider a company that did that. However, as is, it seems more expensive than even the first tier resellers.

I have seen this thread before and as far as I remember you need to be Virgin mobile postpaid customer to get the internet at that price so it kills the deal.

Doesn't say that anywhere - seems like a decent deal

You no longer need to be a postpaid customer to get the internet as of this week.

Virgin Internet is essentially Bell Fibe. So if you have Fibe lines in your area, you will have Virgin Internet. Higher speed plans are rolling out soon.

Prices are currently competitive with Teksavvy, Start etc, with the added bonus of free tech install and free modem. No activation fee.

I switched from bell to this thing.. I swear the internet stutters more than usual vs bell. Facebook has been really laggy these past few days but using my LTE data - facebook is snappy. The modem is awesome though.

However, i dont use the wireless from it and bridged it to an Airport extreme router which seems to be alot more solid
