Virgin Mobile Partners with Walmart for $20 – 1 GB Data Plans on MiFi and USB Modems

Virgin Mobile is partnering with Walmart to extend the reach and the value of the company’s BroadBand2Go mobile broadband offering. Starting today Virgin Mobile users who purchase a Virgin Mobile Mifi or Virgin Mobile Ovation USB modem from Walmart will have the option of using an affordable $10 a month data plan that offers 1 GB of data.

Users will be able to top up their MiFi using speciaal $20 data plan cards sold at Walmart and made available online through Virgin Mobile. According to the announcement if you already have a Virgin Mobile Broadband2GO MiFi or USB Modem you can take advantage of the offer too.

The plan is a Walmart exclusive. That means unless you purchased your Virgin Mobile Device from Walmart you cannot use it with this new, more affordable, data plan. This is a big letdown for anyone who already has a Virgin Mobile device, depending on your usage you may be better off selling your old device and picking up a new one from Walmart.

As always Virgin Mobile’s BroadBand2Go mobile data plan does not require a contract. You can check coverage online, which is based on Sprint’s network.

The Virgin Mobile MiFi is available for $149 and the Virgin Mobile Ovation MC760 USB Modem is available for $79. Check out our review of the Virgin Mobile BroadBand2Go Service using the Ovation USB modem.
