Fido Home Internet Vs Virgin Mobile Home Internet

Virgin Mobile is competing against Fido for the best home internet provider in Canada.

The company is promoting two new internet plans on pre-sale today, which are available only to customers who have existing subscriptions for 6 months or more. There will be no hidden fees, no long-term contracts, and no installation fees according to Virgin Mobile’s website.

The 300GB plan is available at $50 per month with a download speed of 25 Mbps and upload speed of 10Mbps. Exceeding data usage will be charged at $1/GB. The other one is an unlimited plan that costs $65/month. It offers the same download and upload speeds.

The price and data limits of Virgin Mobile internet plans are at par with Fido’s except the latter offers download speed at 30Mbps and an upload speed at 5Mbps.

The $50 and $65 internet plans Fido are limited to postpaid subscribers only. An additional $10 per month will be added for each plan if a customer is on a prepaid account, or is riding on another subscriber’s account.

Virgin Mobile will eventually offer the same internet plans to the wider public though experts assess it will still take some months.

    Word of warning for anyone thinking of using Virgin Wireless for home internet!!!

    I signed up for no contract home internet when we moved in here in July. Never worked properly for 2 full days, tech support couldn’t fix it, and tried to up sell me on a $100 modem instead of their free one.

    I refused and cancelled my service on the 3rd day, and was assured I wouldn’t be charged anything of course.

    Got a bill for the full month, called, and was not allowed to speak to a manager.

    Called again next month and asked to speak to customer service manager and was told they’d call ME. Never did.

    Now this bill, INCLUDING A TERMINATION FEE on a NO CONTRACT account has been turned over to collections.

    The first time in my life.

    I signed up with Fido instead and it has be seamless and fantastic experience. And less expensive.

    Nice work Virgin! Stay away people!
