Virgin Mobile USA To Offer $40/Month Unlimited Mobile Data Plan
But now, Virgin Mobile USA is going against the AT&T grain with a couple of new Broadband2Go plans. These plans provide mobile Internet access on Sprint's network via the MiFi 2200 hotspot or the Ovation MC760 USB WWAN modem. Both devices are prepaid (no contract attached), giving you the ability to only buy network access for times when you need it. The new plans include a $10 option that gives users 100MB over the course of 10 days, or the real sweet spot is unlimited data over the course of 30 days.
That's the $40 unlimited plan, with the $40 part being the real kicker. Even Verizon's WWAN plans are more than that for just 5GB per month. This won't help your smartphone per se, but it'll definitely help those looking to get their notebooks, UMPCs, etc. online while on the road. The new plans should go into effect this week.
