All you can eat post paid data plans can often cost upwards of $250+ per year. Not to mention, the majority of people never come close to actually using $250 worth of data. If you have been begging for more reliable and affordable pre-paid data options, Virgin Mobile would like to share something with you. Virgin Mobile has finally released all of the info associated with this new type of plan and billing. The
Broadband2Go pre-paid data plans while on the surface look mighty expensive for such a small amount of data, are in fact a huge value to those who only need mobile internet a couple of times throughout the year. The pricing for the plans is as follows:

  • $10: 100MB usable for 10 days
  • $20:250MB usable for 30 days
  • $40:600MB usable for 30 days
  • $60:1GB usable for 30 days

Again, if you are planning to use these types of plans and pricing every month, you will end up spending a ton of money on Rogers-esque plans/prices that are not good for the long term at all. But, if you are the data dabbler who uses it sporadically and can’t afford an extra $30-$40 every month for post-paid data options, this Virgin Mobile solution may be right up your alley.
