Come on, you knew this was going to happen right? Hot on the heels of Fido launching their “limited time promo” with double the data on 500MB and 1GB plans, Virgin Mobile has matched the latter’s offer.
Right now, you can get BYOP plans of $40/month with 1GB data and 500 minutes and $50/month with unlimited minutes and 2GB data. Both plans include Canada-wide calling and the usual extras.
The same offers are available for those wanting to sign contracts, but they are $10 and $15 more for Silver and Gold plan subsidies, respectively.
The fine print says the “limited time offers” for BYOP are only available for new activations, while the Silver and Gold plan pricing is available to upgrades and new activations.
However, one RFD member was able to call in and switch to the BYOP plan, coming from an existing plan and not a new activation, so your mileage may vary.
To get an unlimited Canada-wide calling plan with 2GB of data for $50 is ‘not bad’ for 2016. Also, if you’re in Quebec, Koodo is offering a $40 Canada-wide plan with 2GB data, which is even better.
Let us know if you’re going to jump on these plans–the offers go until June 6, 2016.
