Virigin mobile caps 3G broadband in US

Written by Rob Squires


Starting February
US mobile broadband provider Virgin mobile has announced that they will begin capping their once-unlimited 3G mobile broadband plan.

Starting February 15, Virgin mobile will begin throttling it's "Unlimited Broadband2Go" users if they surpass the 5GB data barrier in month's usage.  Virgin Mobile's unlimited 3G, $40-a-month plan instantly became one of the best deals on the market in mobile wireless when it was announced last August on a no-contract basis.

This move will leave only Sprint's 4G network to offer, all-you-can-eat broadband data in the US.

Once again the communists strike to reduce freedom of choice working to demonify capitalism as being evil when it's the communists who are pulling the strings. I highly recommend reading the Protocols of Zion, it's short and explains why you see much of the bad news we see posted on the site.

$80/m plan is starting to kill me here but I'm happy with my gigantic Evo and Sprint. Those Virgin need more than a 3.2" to win me over.

Virgin does it here in the UK aswell with the fibre optic broadband, download so many GBs and they cap your speed down to half which doesn't return to full speed until 4AM the next morning, even if the capping commences at 12:01AM you have to wait the full 28 hours till the next morning, so much for the unlimited download claims

you are only capped for max 28 hours, these people are being capped for the rest of the month which could be DAYS to WEEKS at a time. hardly the same.

you are also confusing SPEED (mbps), with DOWNLOAD limits (GB/month).
