Virgin and Fido Launch Student Promo: Free 1GB Data with Select Plans

Back to school is just around the corner and if you’re a student looking to jump on a new cellphone plan, Virgin Mobile and Fido have offered a new promo. For select BYOD (bring your own device) plans, you’ll get 1GB data extra per month, for 12 months. This is valid for $55, $65 and $75 plans.

For Virgin Mobile customers, the offer is for new activations only in-store and a valid student ID is required.

For Fido customers, the promo is valid for new activations and renewals, in-store.

Looking at the Virgin BYOD plans below, that means you’ll get an additional 1GB on top, so your starting $55 plan will have 2GB, the $65 plan will have 3GB and the $75 plan will have 4GB.
