Virgin Mobile has launched a new prepay tariff offering unlimited data from £10 per month.
The MVNO said the offer was in response to growing demand for unlimited tariffs among its pay monthly customers. Data usage among pay as you go customers has increased by 100% during the past year.
The Big Data and Texts tariff offers unlimited data, 300 texts and £10 worth of talk time on a £10 top-up. They can get £15 of talk time with the same texts and data for a £15 top-up.
Virgin Media also launched a Big Talk tariff, offering unlimited UK landline calls and 120 minutes to UK mobile, plus £10 airtime for £10 per month. Customers who pay £15 also get unlimited texts.
Jamie Heywood [pictured], 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. Having introduced unbeatable pay-monthly tariffs earlier this year, we’re now introducing incredible value pay-as-you-go tariffs too which makes Virgin Media the unbeatable choice for unlimited data, whether you’re willing to sign up to a new contract or not.'
Earlier this year Virgin Mobile unveiled several unlimited tariffs under its 'Unlimitacular' offer.
