Award winning provider Virgin Mobile offers a range of great value mobile plans and mobile broadband products. The carrier provides over one million Australians with mobile services using the Optus network, which covers 97% of the country.

Customers in need of a wireless connection can choose from Virgin mobile’s prepaid packages or a 12-month post-paid plan, which will include a free mobile broadband modem. Customers can bundle their mobile broadband service with a post-paid Virgin mobile phone to get $5 off their bill each month.

Unlike many other mobile broadband carriers, there are no excess usage charges with Virgin Mobile’s broadband service. If you exceed your limit, speeds are slowed to up to 128Kbps, and after 250MB, your service is unavailable till the following billing period unless you “top-up.”

Virgin Mobile often has exclusive online specials (such as half price access fees for five months), so it’s worth checking the Compare Broadband news site to see what’s on offer. Delivery is free, and next day delivery is provided in metro areas.
