Virgin Mobile increases Mobile Broadband Allowances in US

Virgin Mobile in the US have made a few changes to their prepay plans by increasing the amount of data allowance you get. For $60/month you now get to use 5GB of data per month on their Mobile Broadband plans.

Previously the $60/month plan (not on contract) got users 1GB of data. By increasing the allowance to 5GB it brings it closer and in some cases in-line with what others in the market offer such as Sprint, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile.

The other plans on Virgin Mobile see the $10/month plan getting 100MB of data that has to be used within 10 days. Other plans are as follows…

$20 for 300MB
$40 for 1GB
$60 for 5GB

The final three price plans listed above each expire in 30 days meaning you need to use up your data each month… it won’t carry over (which is quite common).

If you want Mobile Broadband and don’t want to be tied in to a contract then these plans are ideal with what they give. Of course you should check out coverage before ordering though as you might find you don’t have the quality of service you require in your area. Full details can be found here.
