Founded by legendary businessman Richard Branson 15 years ago, Virgin Mobile has always been a major player in the Australian mobile phone market. Now owned by Optus, the telco uses the extensive Optus 4G and 3G network for all of its services. As a result, Virgin customers with the latest models of smartphones have access to the next-generation 4G network known as 4G Plus. This enables incredibly fast download and upload speeds. You can stream your favourite shows in peace; access free music streaming to international minutes and data rollover, Virgin has it all.
What makes Virgin Mobile unique?
Virgin phone plans are available starting from as little as $30/month. Most plans come with data free music streaming, unlimited standard calls/texts, as well as credit for standard international calls. The most expensive plan packs a whooping 24GB of data for $100/month.
As for SIM-only plans, you can get them on a contract or pay month-to-month. The basic $30/month comes with unlimited calls, but only offers 2.5GB of data if you go month-to-month, or 5GB if you decide to sign a contract. Any unused included data rolls over to the next month. In other words, Virgin provides great value all around.
