Virgin has been stepping up to the plate lately and not acting in any way, shape or form like a sub-brand of Bell. It’s actually really nice to see that even if they are completely still owned by big Blue they can still keep the same Virgin flare.
Virgin recently announced their plans to carry the iPhone, started offering the 30-day “You’ll Love Us” Guarantee… and they have followed through and started to sell “Broadband2Go” Internet Stick. The actual product is Novatel Wireless Ovation MC760 USB Modem and all you have to do is plug it into your computer to get instant access to the internet. This is basically same stick Bell launched a few months ago. You can get this with Virgin on Prepaid for $149.99 and as for data you can get 1GB for $45/month. (Bell is selling this internet stick now for $174.95 on Prepaid)
On another note, if you activate online they will give you a $45 credit, which is a free GB of data. Virgin also says that you’ll be able to get the following speeds: downstream: up to 3.1 Mbps and upstream: up to 1.8 Mbps. The “Broadband2Go” Internet Stick can also hold up to 8GB of memory with a microSD card.
