Virgin Mobile's pre-pay Broadband2Go data plans are expanding
As we've seen Virgin Mobile shake up the US market by making available a prepaid data service for customers, they're setting the bar once again by expanding their current plan offerings. Virgin Mobile USA has announced its new Broadband2Go plans that's basically increasing the allotments of data you get for about the same amount of money they were offering previously – essentially you get more data for the same price. There are four options that range from the lowest $10 plan that offers 100MB of data and expires after 10 days to the usual $60 plan that invites users to use up 5GB of data within a 30 day period – all of the four plans utilize Sprint's high speed EVDO Rev. A network. The actual USB data stick costs $99.99 and comes with a new $20 voucher that offers a 300MB top-up which expires after 30 days. Even though you're expected to pay a premium for the actual device to get the service, it doesn't mean you'll be tethered to a lengthy contract that most domestic wireless carriers offer. This will definitely prove to be big for users that are looking for a service that allows them the flexibility of how much they spend each month for their plan – thus possibly saving them more over comparable postpaid offerings.
