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.
