Virgin Mobile debuts trio of “unlimited” rate plans


Virgin Mobile today rolled out three new “unlimited” rate plans for customers seeking service without long-term commitment. Essentially, the carrier scaled price points back five bucks each and tweaked the data allotments.

Indeed, the plans include unlimited talk and text as well as access to the unlimited streaming feature recently introduced. Playing music through services such as Pandora, iHeartRadio, or Slacker does not affect data consumption.

As of now, Virgin Mobile provides the following options:

  • $30 for 500MB
  • $40 for 4GB
  • $50 for 6GB

Customers who need more data can purchase buckets in $5 (1GB) or $10 (2GB) increments. Whereas the $40 plan is a better value than its predecessor ($45/3GB), more data-heavy users will pay more in the end. Previously, 8GB would run $55 per month where it now costs $60 for the same amount.

Virgin Mobile operates on the Sprint network.
