Virgin Mobile, following on the heels of Verizon, have announced some new rate plans of their own today. But unlike Big Red, these are likely going to be met with a tad bit more enthusiasm. The wireless provider has made a name for themselves with their Beyond Talk plans, matching an increasingly better handset lineup with affordable, no-contract monthly plans. Soon, customers will find even Virgin Mobile getting even more competitive.
Effective one week from today (July 20), and with the arrival of the Motorola Triumph, Virgin Mobile will roll out their new rate plans. What are these new options, you ask? Hit the break and find out!
- Unlimited data and 300 voice minutes will be $35 per month (up $5 from previous plan)
- Unlimited data and 1200 minutes will be $45 per month (up $5 from previous plan)
- Unlimited data, text and voice will be $55 per month (down $5 from previous plan)
With two of the rate plans going up a few bucks each month, it’s not hard to see the value in the unlimited talk/text option. Generally speaking, the plans are a good value regardless of where subscribers end up.
Current Beyond Talk customers will be able to keep their current plan pricing as long as they don’t let their account expire. What’s more, upgrading devices will not affect rate plans in anyway.
