Following the lead set by Vodafone with its double data offer on the new Red mobile plans, Virgin Mobile has decided to make a similar offer in the lead-up to Christmas.
Available for plans taken up between 18 November 2013 and 13 January 2014, Virgin Mobile will offer double data on the $60 and $90 phone plans (and the equivalent BYO plans at $50 and $80 respectively). This takes the $60 phone plan / $50 BYO plan to 3GB of included data, and the $90 phone plan / $80 BYO plan to 6GB included data. Further information about these plans and the inclusions is available at Virgin Mobile’s site.
Derek Cummins, Director of Virgin Mobile Proposition and Strategy told Ausdroid:
Our customers have always been particularly active online, and we know apps are now an integral part of our customers’ everyday lives. In line with this, and our promise to give more, we’re thrilled to be offering our customers the opportunity to enjoy more data on selected plans for the upcoming months with our double data deal.
To celebrate this special offer, Virgin Mobile is also promoting its availability of the Samsung Galaxy S4, offering this stellar device for just $3 per month on the $60 plan. If you’re taken by this offer, there’s more information on Virgin Mobile’s site.
What do you think of these offers? Vodafone is certainly offering a bit more data than this in their double data offer (up to 10GB on the $85 BYO plan), but as with all things, there’s more to the decision than just what’s included. You’ll need to consider network coverage where you live, work and have fun, and make the best decision for you.
