Virgin Mobile USA is expanding the retail footprint for Broadband2Go, its 3G nationwide wireless Internet service without an annual contract, monthly subscription or activation fee.
Retailing at $99.99, Broadband2Go can now be purchased directly from www.virginmobileusa.com as well as more than 1,000 Best Buy Mobile stores, 4,300 Radio Shack stores, Sam’s Club kiosks via Radio Shack, Walmart.com and Target.com as of Dec. 1, 2009.
Extending its pay-as-you-go mantra from mobile phones to wireless, activation is simple and megabytes can be added as often as needed with credit/debit cards or Virgin Mobile Top-Up cards. Top-Up cards can be used to purchase data usage from 100MB to 1 gigabyte on the pay-as-you-go model.
A new Broadband2Go-branded Top-Up card for $20, which customers may use to purchase 250MB good for 30 days, translates roughly into 12 hours of Web browsing. Other data plans are available at $10, $40 and $60, and any Virgin Mobile USA Top-Up card can be used.
