Virgin Mobile Reduces Data Rates for PostPaid Plans

Posted on the 04 May 2012 by Prepaidplans @prepaidplans

Adding to the great news from Amaysim overnight, Virgin Mobile have snuck in with some news of their own. Rather than charge you .2c a kilobyte (effectively $2/MB) for any excess data that you use with your PostPaid plan, they will now charge you only 20.5c/MB, charged per kilobyte.

This also applies to the BYO range which has no contract just a month to month arrangement.

This is what their website said about the change:

We’ve certainly heard all your feedback on excess data and are pleased to be able to announce that from the 1st of May, we reduced our excess data rate for postpaid mobile customers to 20.5c/MB (billed per kb). This is just one of a raft of changes Virgin Mobile is introducing to assist our customers in managing their data consumption.

Virgin Mobile is reducing its excess data rates on postpaid plans to 20.5c/MB, one of the lowest rates in the market. We acknowledge that excess data can be really stressful and as a result we think it’s only fair to lower our excess data rates to reflect the increasing use of smartphones in Australia. Fifty-two per-cent of us now have smartphones; that’s one of the highest penetrations of smartphones in the world. Virgin Mobile customers should be able to use their handsets to their full potential and, with ever increasing smartphone usage in Australia we think this change will make it easier for people to get the most out of their phone.
