Digital News Report – Virgin Mobile announced that they have added an unlimited data transfer to their Broadband2Go service starting at $40 for a 30 day time period. This pay as you go wireless internet service used to cap off the transfer rates, but with the new $40 Broadband2Go plan you will get unlimited data transfer. This service is great for those that want to use their computers online at home and on the go or if they have limited options for service in their area. This new $40 unlimited mobile broadband Internet service plan replaces their $20 and $60 plans.
