Virgin Mobile has launched Home Internet in Quebec today, after debuting earlier this summer in Ontario. The announcement today also has a new charity effort, where for every time a customer signs up for Home Internet, Virgin will donate $10 to the Virgin Mobile RE*Generation cause, which supports youth employment programs in both provinces.
“I am extremely excited about the new Home Internet service from Virgin Mobile Canada – we know Members are going to love it,” said Sir Richard Branson, founder, The Virgin Group. “Even better, this fantastic new service has heart and will empower people to help youth in need.”
Home Internet is powered by the company’s modem, named Steve, which offers broad Wi-Fi coverage with its six antennas. Virgin Home Internet has no installation fees, contracts or hidden fees, the company emphasizes, saying “hooking up never felt so good.”
