Virgin Mobile launches new 4G mobile broadband service


virginthumbVirgin Mobile has introduced a new affordable 4G mobile broadband service on a 12-month plan to provide high-speed internet access on the move.

It will be priced at $59 a month with 13GB of included data on a 12-month contract.

At this price, and with a generous data allowance, the Virgin Mobile plan would compete with some household fixed broadband plans.

Virgin Mobile utilises the Optus network and this 4G service will be available in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth with Hobart to follow later this year.

The Optus 4G network already covers these areas and provides coverage for faster download and upload speeds.
