Virgin Mobile Undercuts Competition with $40 Unlimited Broadband2Go Plan

Virgin Mobile Virgin Mobile was one of the first to come out with prepaid mobile broadband plans in the US. They started with 4 plans that were kind of confusing offering 100MB for $10, 300MB for $20, 1GB for $40, and 5GB for $60. That last plan was kind of on par with the competition since AT&T and Verizon both charge $60 for 5GB unlimited data plans.

This week Virgin Mobile announced that they have changed things up by cutting the top three plans ranging from $20-$60 and just having one high end plan offering unlimited data for $40 a month. There is no word on if unlimited means 5GB like every other US carrier but I am guessing so since the service runs on Sprint’s network. They are keeping the $10 100MB for 10 days plan for low end users so now they only have two plans.

Virgin Mobile is offering the following two devices with the plan:

  • the Ovation(TM) MC760 USB device connects to a single personal computer or laptop and is available at retail for $79.99 and,
  • the MiFi(R) 2200, the nation’s first prepaid Mobile Intelligent Hotspot, priced at $149.99 allows up to five users at a time to connect using a variety of Wi-Fi enabled devices

The devices are available at Best Buy, RadioShack , Sprint Stores, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile stores, Walmart and online at,, and The new plans should be available later this week on and in a few weeks at retail outlets.
