Virgin Mobile is getting a name change.
According to a recent Twitter thread shared by Virgin Mobile subscriber @GregIsaacs, the Bell flanker brand will soon rebrand as Virgin Plus in Canada.
Hey Greg, thanks for including the message details! This text notification is legitimate. As of July 19th, we'll be rebranded to Virgin Plus as it's inclusive to all of the services that we offer; this includes mobile, as well as TV/internet in available regions. Thank you, ^RS

As per Virgin Mobile’s (soon to be Virgin Plus) reply, the rebranding will go official on July 19th. The name change aims to better include Virgin’s other offerings, such as Internet, TV, Tablets, accessories and more.
Additionally, all services and plans are expected to remain the same.
No further information is known currently, though the carrier stated in its text message sent to its subscribers to “check out virginplus.ca on July 19th to learn more.” It’s worth noting that going to virginplus.ca now automatically redirects to the carrier’s website.
MobileSyrup has reached out to Virgin Mobile. This post will be updated if and when more information is available.
