Virgin Mobile Broadband 2011

Since last year, Virgin Mobile broadband has gone from reselling Sprint mobile broadband to being owned outright by the company.

Now there’s no question as to whether Virgin’s 3G service will be a direct reflection of Sprint. The main difference rather, lies in their prepaid mobile broadband plans, one stipulation in 3G coverage and broadband devices.


Virgin Mobile Broadband Plans

Virgin Mobile Broadband Plans 2011

Virgin mobile’s unlimited mobile broadband plan 3G speeds get seriously throttled at 2.5 GB. The question is, will you use that much?

Virgin Mobile Broadband 3G coverage mirrors Sprint’s in the same way it does 3G speed. However, there is an important distinction.

  4. Mike says:

    Slowest broadband and lousy customer service. You can do much better for $50

  5. Alison says:

    I agree with everyone else; Virgin Mobile is ridiculously slow. It also keeps disconnecting. It’s time to shop for a new service.

  6. Dalton Roberts JR says:

    Virgin Mobile broadband is the slowest internet service I have ever had and I have talked to many people about it as well. There is no move to make it better because there are always suckers like me buying it. They have lousy customer service that normally read from a script and can not help you pass a taking your money or a very basic set up. Most of the work is out sourced… so good luck.
