Techanist is reporting that both VHA (Voda+Three) and Virgin will be launching the LG Optimus on $19 caps, with stock expected to hit stores later this week. That’s $30 less than Telstra, and dead even with Optus who are also selling it at $279 (via Allphones).
Virgin’s cap will include $50 cap credit, 50MB data and free calls to other Virgin mobiles.
VHA’s cap will include $70 cap credit, no data and $70 worth of VHA to VHA calls.
Optus’s current plan includes $70 cap credit, 100MB data as well as free Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, eBay etc..
With these carriers vying for your business at $19/mo, we can hope to see Telstra slip their price down in the future. If you’re interested in the Optimus, check out our review.
