Virgin Mobile USA has revealed a new feature for its prepaid plans which lets customers stream music without having it impact the data plan. Dubbed “data-free” streaming, it allows for unlimited access Pandora, Slacker Radio, and iHeartRadio.
The move is similar to what T-Mobile does for its Music Freedom feature in that it frees up customers from stressing about data usage. Music is one of the more popular ways to chew threw monthly data; the three services are some of the bigger names in the space.
Virgin Mobile customers can receive the data-free streaming for any of the carrier’s three plans. The $35 option includes 1GB of monthly data and includes unlimited talk and text. For $45, subscribers can jump to 3GB of data while the $55 plan gives 8GB of high speed internet.
