T-Mobile recently began airing a new commercial touting their $49.99 rate plan which includes unlimited data, talk and text, including up to 2 GB of ‘full-speed’ data. As they see it, it’s the best value you can get in wireless. Virgin Mobile disagrees and wants you to know there’s another, better option out there. Starting today, you’ll begin seeing commercials featuring the Virgin Mobile celebrity couple Sparah and a lookalike version of T-Mobile’s Carly.
Virgin Mobile offers a new rate plan with unlimited Web, Data, Messaging, and Email at $35 per month. At $15 less than what T-Mobile asks for a similar deal, it does sound better on paper. However, considering other factors such as data speed and handset selection, things get muddied pretty quickly.
