Say Hi to home internet by virgin mobile, available for AS LOW AS $50/Month

TORONTO – Streaming and sharing just got a little cheekier with the introduction of Home Internet by Virgin Mobile Canada. It's Internet the Virgin way. Launching today, it will offer a generation of social networkers, movie fans and music lovers awesome upload speeds, super-fast download speeds, and epic usage to satisfy their insatiable appetites for Internet.

Home Internet by Virgin Mobile is available right now to eligible Ontarians with two simple plans: 300 GB for $50/month or unlimited for $65/month. Both plans have no activation fee, no long term contract and no hidden fees. With download speeds of up to 25 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 10 Mbps, it will be love at first megabyte.

"At Virgin, we're in the experience business, and only Virgin Mobile Canada can put the VIP into your IP", said Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group. "When you hook up with Home Internet by Virgin Mobile Canada, you'll get more than a strong Wi-Fi connection; you'll enjoy the unmatched experience you've grown to expect from the Virgin brand."

To get in on the stream, all eligible Ontarians need to do is hook up with Steve, the happy home modem. Steve's powerful six antennas provide Wi-Fi reach to reliably cover your whole household. He also handles multiple devices, has fast download and upload speeds, and is included in the monthly Internet subscription. Those who take Steve home can sit back and relax while the pros set him up at no additional cost. Hooking up has never been so easy.

"Ontarians are going to love Steve," said Joseph Ottorino, managing director, Virgin Mobile Canada. "He's the perfect mix of business and party. He'll drop the bass at your dance parties but also provides a super speedy connection when you need to get things done. He's bringing a brand of Internet that fits our Member's unique lifestyles at an ultra-affordable price."

Steve is the ideal partner for:

  • Binge-watching - Have a weekend marathon-viewing slumber party with Steve.
  • Living room dance parties - Play DJ all night long.
  • Getting your game on – Whether you’re battling aliens, getting your virtual athletics on or putting the pedal to the metal on cyber racetracks, Steve’s got you.
