Virgin Mobile may not be the most popular network in the American market. But the company surely has got a loyal subscriber base and according to a recent report, the company may be simplifying their Broadband2Go data plans to these users.
Using Broadband2Go, We’re not only able to browse the web but also stream high definition video, make video conference calls, keep tabs on social networks and much more all thanks to high speed mobile connections.
While mobile broadband connections are becoming less of a luxury and more of an everyday thing, they are still quite expensive. Add that to the fact that many mobile carriers are beginning to cap bandwith instead of offering unlimited data and those expenses can get even higher.
Virgin Mobile’s Facebook page has confirmed that the operator will be offering unlimited prepaid data access for $40 a month in the future. The new offering will replace its previous $20/$40/$60 tiers launched earlier this year and signals the operators intent to undercut every carrier in the US on data pricing.
The switch would escalate the competition among carriers for mobile data. Clear and Virgin’s US parent Sprint offer unlimited Internet, but only for their still-rare WiMAX services. On 3G, Sprint as well as AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon all have caps of 5GB or less for Internet-only plans. Frequent travellers have often complained regarding the limits as they can be broken quickly with significant media streaming or for more than a few days of use.
The operator is still listing its current $10/$20/$40/$60 data plans, with internal Sprint documentation confirming that the offering will launch this Tuesday, August 24th.
With the new unlimited plan, customers could have a true substitute for a home connection and would have a particular edge with a MiFi, since multiple users could share service without risking overage fees.
