Re: Virgin Raises Plan Prices Another $5 In Ontario.

This is terrible. This is a 25% increase in less than 4 months. It's just not fair for new accounts to pay so much money for "Less".

Re: Virgin Raises Plan Prices Another $5 In Ontario.

It appears to be a marketing gimmick. 

Inflate the regular prices and then have a 25% off and 50% off promos... make the customers beg and bargain for better deal and poor customers walk away thinking they got a better deal but in reality the whole market is rotten.

I think what happens is the phone companies come out with a promotion and then they think the customers have forgotten what the price was a week or two ago. They then price gauge us.

Time to move to the uk?


The UK is consistantly rated in the top 20/30 most expensive countries to live in. I had a cousin who lived there and said he was just working to pay rent. He moved back to Canada.

$65 for 1 GB of data and unlimited Canada wide minutes at Virgin. The same plan on Public Mobile is $45 (with autopay) and $43 (with autopay) for the 90 day plan. At least a $20/month difference! Thieves!

Maybe Virgin will rethink this one and lower their prices. Koodo and Fido still have not followed since they still have the $45- 2 gig, unlimited Canada-wide calling promotion on.

there is no incentive for them to lower the price if there is no real competition. We need more companies like Freedom

Sort of makes you feel like shopping at the Bay.  The most embarrassing thing to ever have to admit to is paying full retail for an item at the Bay.

I guess it depends on where in the UK and the type of living quarters.  A buddy started working in the UK last year.  He is subletting a flat at 300 pounds a month.  It is not Taj Mahal living but it warm, comfortable, meets the basic needs for shelter.

Can concur. Check out these amaaaazing Alberta BYOP plans from the Virg! The 2GB plan is laughable!Screenshot_20180222-234704.jpg
