Yesterday, Virgin Mobile sent out notices to customers saying that it will raise the prices of select Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) plans by $5.
The email notes that customers will see a price increase starting in June 2016. However, the email did not provide an explanation as to why the prices are being changed and which customers will be affected. In the question and answer section of the carrier’s website, Virgin Mobile said:
“With this price increase, your plan is still at a competitive value compared to anything else we have in market.”
The company’s website notes that customers will be affected by the price change if you are on a month-to-month BYOP plan and you received a notification of a price increase from the carrier in April.
The change may be linked to the restructured rate model of Bell (parent company of Virgin Mobile), which was introduced in January. It appears that both Bell and Virgin Mobile are moving towards a future with no BYOP savings.
