Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go becomes official
So the cat is finally out of the bag with plenty of rumors floating around for about a month now. Virgin Mobile announced the availability of the Novatel Wireless MC760 which will be combined with their new no-contract Broadband2Go service. The USB modem will run you $149.99 and exclusively offered at Best Buy Mobile locations. At first there were hints towards a possible postpaid option, but now it seems the only option is prepaid. You can purchase Broadband2Go Top-Up cards in various dominations from $10 to $60. Although they are not as competitively priced than first thought, it can provide a great solution for those who don't use the service through the course of a year. For example, $10 will giver users 100MB of data which is  valid for 10 days while $60 offers a more robust 1GB usable for 30 days. Some of us might be scratching our heads because most postpaid options at $60 per month allows for 5GB of usage. Either way, Virgin Mobile's offerings are unique and stirs up some much needed competition against the postpaid giants.

This is also good for people who go camping in areas that wi-fi is not available, but Virgin Mobile offers Data service. Their coverage map is pitiful, but you can email or call them to check if this device will work in your zip code.
