Virgin Mobile Adds $94/month Unlimited Canada-Wide Plan with 5GB Data


Virgin Mobile has added a new $94/month Silver Plan (up to $200 subsidy) which features unlimited nationwide calling and 5GB of data. It’s also available under Gold Plans (up to $300 subsidy) for $5 more at $99 per month. Data overages are charged at $5/250MB.

This plan looks to match the same $94 Tab Small and $99 Tab Medium plans from Koodo, available since late May:

There’s no mention of this $94/month plan on Fido’s website (yet).

If you’re bringing your own unlocked iPhone, you can take 10% off these prices, so the $94 plan works out to $84.60 per month plus taxes.

Let us know if you’re going to jump on any of these plans.


  • Canada is for sure going backward! $94 plus tax a month???? This is over 100 per month on a cell phone bill! Who can afford this?

  • I remember paying close to $100/month when I had the 6GB/$30 plan with Rogers. But based on my usage it was overkill so the $56/month Fido plan with 2GB from late 2012 has held up so far.

  • Gary, the problem now is that these grandfather plans are becoming the target of the big three… Say for example, if Fido decided to hike prices by $5 or $10, any sensible clients will be held to hostage to pay this amount

  • Yeah, the recent $5 hike for the 6GB/$30 plan is exactly that. Crossing my fingers some grandfathered plans will remain untouched off contract.

    I pay $75/mo all in (taxes) for unlimited cdn wide, 2gb data, call display+voicemail, so an extra 3gb of slow ass data for an extra 25 bucks doesn’t sound too appelaing

  • I have a feeling that the big three is going to follow each other. They really don’t like people using their own device and love them of contract.

    What is this, 2004? Good luck with that, Virgin.

    What happened to all these prices? 🙁

    As much as I love the speed of LTE, I may have to suck it up and accept slower data from Wind. At this rate, rogers seems hellbent on losing me as a longtime customer of almost 15 years.
