Virgin Media offers unlimited data for £10 a month

Big Data & Text tariff offers unlimited data and airtime credit

Virgin Media Big Data Pay As You Go Tariff

Virgin Media has announced two new pay as you go smartphone tariffs offering users unlimited data for £10 per month.

The new tariffs are called 'Big Data and Texts’ providing unlimited data an 300 texts, and 'Big Talk' offering unlimited landline calls plus 120 anytime mobile minutes. At £10 per month, Virgin Media said the plans are 'market leading' when compared to the competition.

Jamie Heywood, director of mobile at Virgin Media said: “Unlimited data is a must to get the most out of the amazing smartphones available today. People want to be connected wherever they are so we’ve introduced unlimited data without the ties of a contract.

Users can add unlimited texts to either of the tariffs for an extra £5 per month. Unlike rival operators, the £10 subscription also counts as mobile credit.

Virgin Media said it came up with the tariff because it has seen a 100 percent increase in the amount of data its pay as you go users consume. It's the kind of deal you would want to combo with the SIM-free LG Nexus 4.
