Virgin Mobile Brings Back 2GB Data Add-On for $5 Per Month


If you’re Virgin Mobile customer, the company has brought back its 2GB data add-on for $5/month, available via self serve online, as noticed by RFD member d1ulove3:


Theoretically, you could subscribe to the $50 BYOD plan with 2GB data and 500 anytime minutes, then purchase this $5/month add-on to bump you up to 4GB of data, for a total of $55 per month.

Virgin Mobile also recently launched a $40/4GB plan (Fido matched Virgin yesterday) targeting new customers in BC and Alberta, in response to Public Mobile’s $38/4GB promo (after credit card auto renew), which expires November 20th.

The last time we saw Virgin Mobile offer this $5/2GB data add-on was back in June, as an offer only available by calling into the Retention department.

For those on the $40/4GB Virgin Mobile plan, let us know if you’re seeing the possibility of purchasing this 2GB data add-on. That would make for a sweet $45/6GB plan with unlimited province-wide calling.

    very curious about the possibility of a $45/6GB plan, please someone let us know

  • Riar Jotz

    I’ve just moved the line to the virgin from bell I’m not able to add any data on the top

  • Hoegy

    I’m on the BYOD 50 plan and I don’t have the option of getting this

  • YoGoerz

    Any word on if Fido will match this offer? Namely matching this $40-4GB plan with a $5-2GB add on making it $45-6GB?

  • Cyrus Wu

    I pay the super ridiculous 110.00/mth for 5gb and don’t have this option.

  • Jimbeau

    Not seeing this on the self-serve site. Can you direct me to the page?
