Virgin Mobile new plans available on October 4
Sprint’s prepaid brand Virgin Mobile has announced new plans to its dealers. Starting tomorrow, October 4, 2014, Virgin Mobile will introduce new plans that include new $20 talk and text plan and two $35 plans, new and existing one. Also, there is a $45 plan that now includes less high speed data, 1 GB instead of current 2.5GB and the $55 plan that’s improved; now has 3GB of high speed data instead of current 2.5GB.
Virgin Mobile New Plans
Virgin Mobile new plan offerings will include:
- $20 monthly plan – 300 voice minutes, unlimited texts and no data
- $35 monthly plan – unlimited talk, messaging and data with first 250MB at high speeds
- $35 monthly plan – 300 voice minutes, unlimited messaging and data with first 2.5 GB at high speeds (existing plan)
- $45 monthly plan – unlimited talk, messaging and data with first 1 GB at high speeds, unlimited international texts and 100 international minutes to over 70 countries
- $55 monthly plan – unlimited talk, messaging and data with first 3 GB at high speeds, unlimited international texts and 100 international minutes to over 70 countries
Virgin Mobile throttles data to 128Kbps after high speed data allotment is reached in a month.
Virgin Mobile New International Add-Ons
In addition to new monthly service plans, Virgin Mobile announced two new international add-ons as well.
- For $5 per month, customers will get unlimited international texting, unlimited landline calling to all of Mexico, unlimited landline and mobile calling to Canada except for Northern territory (area code 867), which is not included.
- For $10 per month, customers will get everything that $5 international add-on includes plus 1,000 minutes for calling mobile numbers in Mexico, unlimited calling landlines to over 70 countries, and discounted rates for calling to over 200 countries.
With this change, Virgin does improve its prepaid plan offerings in terms of customers having more options but comparing to providers as Boost Mobile, its sister company, and AT&T’s Cricket Wireless, which recently increased high speed data allotments significantly (for a limited time but customers can keep the plans after promotions end), Virgin is still far behind.
