Virgin Mobile on Thursday revealed its rate plans now offer for more high speed data at no additional cost. The basic plan of $35 per month now allows for 1GB of data, quadruple its previous allotment of 250MB.
The $45 plan formerly included 1GB of high speed data but it has since been tripled to 3GB per month. As for the $55 option, Virgin Mobile has taken it from 3GB per month up to 8GB.
Virgin Mobile operates on the Sprint network and lets customers access unlimited data. The catch is that once you hit the threshold for your plan it gets dialed back down to a 2G speed for the remainder of the bill cycle.
Virgin Mobile also today announced availability of the LG Tribute 2, a 4.5-inch Android smartphone with a $100 price tag. Also sold through parent company Sprint, the handset offers up a 5-megapixel rear camera, 8GB storage, and microSD expansion card slot.
