Virgin Mobile Promo: $54 Plan with 6GB Data, $58.50 Plan with 8GB for Quebec

Virgin Mobile users in Quebec, new promo BYOP (bring your own phone) plans are now available, which also include bonus 1,000 international long distance minutes, in a move which matches similar offerings from Fido (the 6GB and 8GB plans).

Here are the monthly prices, which include unlimited nationwide minutes and all the usual extras:

  • $40 with 2GB data
  • $49 with 4GB data
  • $54 with 6GB data
  • $58.50 with 8GB data

Koodo has not matched these offers yet, as they do not offer a 8GB plan in Quebec.

Why does Quebec have lower mobile pricing from the Big 3 versus the rest of Canada? Thank regional carrier Videotron for local competition. Other provinces such as Manitoba and Saskatchewan have their own regional competition with MTS (now owned by Bell) and SaskTel.

For the rest of us, if you’re looking for a decent plan, Public Mobile (which runs on the nationwide TELUS LTE network) has a $38 per month plan with 4GB data and unlimited province-wide talk, if you subscribe to auto renew with your credit card. Otherwise it’s $40 per month and the promo expires on November 20th.
