Virgin offers £5-per-month mobile broadband

UK's cheapest 3G mobile broadband deal

Virgin Media claims to have launched the UK's cheapest ever bundled 3G mobile broadband package, with a £5-per-month deal now available to select Virgin customers.

The ISP entered the mobile broadband market on 1 October, and runs its service on T-Mobile's UK 3G network. According to Virgin, the service offers speeds of up to 3.6Mbps (depending signal strength), and the original deal was available on an 18-month contract with a 3GB download limit per month.
