Virgin Mobile's New $40 Broadband Plan Replaces Others
Virgin Mobile USA today made a more formal announcement about its new $40 unlimited monthly data plan. As Phone Scoop reported earlier, for customers seeking no-contract wireless broadband service, Virgin Mobile USA is offering 100MB for $10, which lasts for 10 days. It is also offering unlimited broadband for $40 per month. These two new plans replace the plans, ranging from $20 to $60, that Virgin Mobile USA introduced in June. Customers who had chosen one of those older plans will be able to serve out the remaining time of their monthly data allotment and will then have to choose one of the new plans for their next monthly cycle. The plans will be available starting August 25. The service will be available with either an Ovation MC760 USB dongle ($80) or the Novatel MiFi 2200 ($150).

Ditch the crappy ATT iPad "3G" Service
1. I have an iPad and spend $25 per month for AT&T's ultra crappy 3G service. Why not get the mifi on Virgin's service, put it in your pocket, and share with the iPad? Unlimited access, instead of the meager 2GB for AT&T (then another $25).
2. I am considering getting rid of my home broadband through Time Warner. Although it is faster that 3G broadband, I am going to test it out. If it is satisfactory, bye bye Time Warner! I am tired of getting nickeled and dimed by the cable company. Plus, if the power goes out...guess what...I still have Internet!
3. If you have an Android or iPhone, ratchet down the minute plans, and use Skype via Wi-fi. Again, put your mi-fi in your...

False advertising, or lazy web designers?
One thing that bothers me--

This begs the question...
I live in Las Vegas, and I can get Clear WiMax for $5 more a month and that's true broadband.
