Virgin Mobile pushes the threshold as they launch their $40/month broadband plan
The mobile broadband war is being pushed in a new direction now that Virgin Mobile announced through its Facebook page that they are introducing two new plans that should prove to be enticing for customers. Naturally, you won't have to sign a contract for either plans, but Virgin Mobile will be putting the squeeze on the competition now that they're offering 100MB of data for $10 – which will be good for 10 days. In addition, their unlimited broadband data plan is priced at an appealing $40 per month – something that should concern even the usual set of postpaid carriers. It looks like customers who wish to take advantage of these inexpensive plans will be required to use either a Mi-Fi or USB modem to access the service. Needless to say that this is an eye opening move by the prepaid carrier, but it's even more impressive when you consider the fact that it's unlimited – unlike the cap requirements found with other postpaid carriers.
