Virgin Monthly Web...Cheaper However You Slice It

I'm surprised I missed this, but Virgin Mobile has now introduced another way to buy web the month. $4.99 gets you the month of access, with a limit of 5 MB. I'm guessing it would charge you $1 per 500k after that. But anyway, if you use web five days a month or more, this is the clear choice, since its rates are half that of the pay-when-you-need-it daily package...and cheaper than everyone else that I know of as far as prepid web goes per kilobyte, at a tenth of a cent per KB. Then again, there's no tethering or stuff like that, and some websites just plain won't work on Virgin Mobile...but hey, it's the cheapest web access on prepaid besides STi Mobile, and you don't have to be afraid of them disconnecting your service for just pay more ;)

Wow. That's cheaper than the $5.99 I pay on T-Mobile postpaid for WAP access. While T-Mobile's access isn't limited to 5MB, I rarely use close to that amount. It is handy, however, to check the weather radar on my local TV station's WAP site. --Scooby214
