We had the scoop late last week about Virgin Mobile’s new Broadband2Go plans, including the very exciting $40 unlimited option. Spotted on the mobile broadband section of Virgin’s Facebook page was the above graphic which details and unofficially confirms Virgin’s new $10/100MB and $40/unlimited Broadband2Go plans. This image reportedly made its debut without any fanfare or formal announcement and is residing on Facebook until Virgin is ready to roll out these new plans on its main website.
Virgin Mobile is simplifying its mobile broadband offerings by eliminating its current plans which include a $10/100MB, $20/300MB , $40/1GB, and $60/5GB plan. Unlike other carriers which are looking to maximize data revenue and limit data usage by offering tiered plans, this prepaid subsidiary of Sprint is taking the bold move of offering unlimited broadband for the cut throat price of $40. For those counting pennies, Virgin is undercutting the big boys like Verizon Wireless and AT&T by $20 (33%) in this highly competitive mobile broadband field.
Launch details were not confirmed but our original leaked information suggests these plans will go live on the 24th of August. Anyone in a Sprint coverage area going to snag a Virgin-branded MiFi 2200 or an Ovation MC760 USB modem and sign up for this unlimited plan?
