Virgin launches £15 mobile broadband service

18-month contract with 3GB of data

Virgin Media has launched its first mobile broadband service.

According to Virgin, the service offers speeds of up to 3.6Mbps (depending signal strength) and is available on an 18-month contract that 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 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.
