A Better Deal on Prepaid Wireless Broadband

By  |  Wednesday, March 3, 2010 at 4:15 pm

Virgin Mobile’s prepaid Broadband2Go wireless Internet access service (which runs on Sprint’s network) has been an intriguing option for folks who need to go wireless only sporadically, or who don’t want to commit to a long-term contract. But at $40 for 1GB of data, it’s been pretty pricey.

Now Virgin has a new plan: 5GB for $60. That happens to be exactly what I pay Verizon Wireless. If I wasn’t only one year into a two-year agreement, Broadband2Go would be awfully tempting…

    A great site to compare broadband plans is http://www.internetchoice.com.au.

    I think Cricket is $40/mo. Some of the friend’s and family plans are $50. And I think Clear’s intro 4G plans are $30. $60 is par for the course and no real deal. Other than the contract.

    Cricket is very limited on broadband coverage.

    This is still massively overpriced, it's crazy hoe much more wireless broadband costs in the US compared to Europe, UK, Australia, South Africa or just about anywhere else in the world!

  9. Broadband Plans Says:

    yeah, it really is a pickle why some broadband providers are charging so much! Europe broadband providers have been decreasing their rates and improving their speed in the last two years significantly, the same can be said for some Australian ones, but for the others… well that is why we have compare sites, to help us find the best deal, if there is such a thing!

    I was always amazed with the people like he is. To talk so freely to express himself and in a way others understand you! This is what we all should learn how to do. If we only express ourselves at least 60% he is there will be no wars on this planet!

    To me, this is more than just a talking point for White House officials who would prefer to pivot from security to bread and butter issues. It reflects the historic reality that instances of intense foreign policy activity have generally coincided with periods of sustained economic success and increasing well-being.
