Virgin Mobile launches mobile broadband

The long-awaited entry of Virgin Mobile into the mobile broadband market has finally arrived.

According to Virgin, their new service offers speeds of up to 3.6Mbps (depending signal strength), is available on an 18-month contract and comes with 3GB of data every month. The ISP claims this is sufficient to send 2,000 plain text emails as well as surf the web for 100 hours and make 100 two-minute downloads every month.

Priced at £15 per month, subscribers will receive a free USB modem that can be plugged into a laptop and uses the mobile phone network to provide access to the web. Each further GB of data transfer costs £15.

"The launch of our mobile broadband product means UK consumers can now get all of their broadband needs from the UK's leading broadband expert", said Neil Berkett, Virgin Media CEO.

The ISP is also offering the first three months free, to any XL home customers that sign up to the Mobile Broadband service.
