Virgin Mobile. According to the announcement, the new plan includes unlimited 4G LTE , unlimited talk and text, and unlimited mobile-optimized streaming videos, gaming and music.
The new plan was shared by a Reddit user, who says the new unlimited data plan basically offers the same things as the $50 plan on Boost Mobile. But there are some significant differences between the $50 Boost and $60 Virgin Mobile unlimited plans:
- Boost offers 480p video streaming, 500 kbps audio streaming, 2 mbps gaming data and up to 8 GB per month of hotspot for $50/month. A $20/month add-on is available that provides 1080p video streaming, 1.5 mbps audio streaming and 8 mbps gaming data.
- Virgin Mobile offers
1080p480p video streaming, 1.5 mbs500 kbps audio streaming and 82 mbps gaming data for $60 month. Hotspot is not included but is available at an extra cost of $3/day for 500 MB of hotspot, $5/month for 1 GB or $10/month for 2 GB.
That means that there is absolutely no reason to choose Virgin Mobile $60/month Data Love Unlimited plan over the $50/month Unlimited Gigs plan from Boost Mobile, which is another Sprint prepaid brand. Not only is the Boost plan cheaper, but it includes 8 GB/month of hotspot at no extra charge compared with Virgin which charges $10 extra for each 2 GB of hotspot use!
With the inclusion of this new plan, the options under the Data Lovers plan include the following choices:
- Data Love ($35/month): Includes 5GB of 4G LTE
- Data Love+ ($45/month): Includes 10GB of 4G LTE
- Data Love Unlimited ($60/month): Includes unlimited data
