There is a growth of interest in family prepaid plans and Virgin Mobile wants to have a good year. Meet “Simply Prepaid” from T-Mobile.
The program starts at $40 per month and it has variations of pricing that can reach $50 and $60. The amount of 4G LTE that is available for the user sets the price plan. Firstly, the $40 program includes 1GB of data usage that is available for using in a month period. Secondly, the $50 and $60 come with 3GB and 5GB, for busier and more internet-friendly users. There is one fact of higher importance in what internet fees are concerned: once a customer has reached his data limit per month, the data speed drops from 4G and higher, to 2G, which is 129kbps. This issue gives birth to a competition that is having place beneath the closed doors of T-Mobile. Its existing brand, MetroPCS, offers the users a single price, the spiciest one of “Simply Prepaid”, the one of $60. In exchange, the 4G LTE is unlimited, in comparison with the 5GB of the opponent. The maximum of data which can be bought in this program is that of 12 GB on its 3G/4G LTE network.
For those who don’t use internet traffic so much, there are smaller data plans: 1GB of data per month is taxed with $10 and unlimited access to social networking apps (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pandora) will charge you with $5.
17th of January is announced to be a big day at Walmart, because Virgin Mobile launched new prepaid programs that are meant to sell like hot bread. Walmart will offer four 4G LTE smartphones that have Virgin Mobile prepaid planes: the HTC Desire 510 at $99.88, LG Tribute at $79.88, LG Volt at $149.88, and Samsung Galaxy Core Prime at $129.88. In the next couple of months, more smartphones will be included in the program.
Separately from the family plans, Virgin Mobile also present offers that make individuality shine even in the tech side of life: for $35 a month, users get 300 voice minutes, unlimited text messages and 2.5GB of internet data. For only $10 more, the package extends to unlimited voice and text messages and the same amount of gigabytes per month.
A very clever move was to introduce a free Mobile Hotspot feature in every single one of the packages of Virgin Mobile, which means that data sharing is allowed between devices that use Wi-Fi. No additional fees are charged for this option. Futhermore, the international program is flexible and manageable. In addition, there are a lot of security aspects for concerned parents who want to keep things under control.
