Virgin Mobile has NO business arsing about with Mobile Broadband

I see that Virgin Media/Mobile has launched a Mobile Broadband dongle.

They have NO business doing this.

No business at all.

THIS from a company that charges 0.5 pence per Kb for mobile data to handsets.

THIS from a company that still has ‘SEE ABOVE FOR WAP CHARGES‘ on it’s tariff page.

WAP charges?

Virgin Mobile is stuck in the dark ages. Clearly if you’re using Virgin Mobile, you don’t use the internet on-the-go. Or if you do, you’re a total numbskull.

You can get 3GB on a mobile dongle from Virgin for £15/month.

Pay As You Go will set you back FIVE FLOCKING POUNDS per megabyte. PER MEGABYTE!

Pay Monthly (or all the other bollocks price plans that they offer — Daily Bonus, Pay By Direct Debit, Liberty SIM) is TWO FLOCKING POUNDS per megabyte.

No business. NO BUSINESS whatsoever coming to market with a mobile broadband dongle.

Get your mobile data tariffs sorted first.

THEN come back and we’ll have a chat. Right?

still need to get back to you on that email…. Australian data charging being fairly high on the agenda. For an internet dongle I've gone prepay largely as the excess fees are so worrying.

Virgin Australia, call 'Bill Shock'; 'Bill Rage'.. You have to give them some credit for this at least 🙂

That just wrong. I think they should pack up from here in the UK or get their own Network.
WAP!
WAP! Oh My…

And Yes, Still T-Mobile. About 2 years ago they re-newed their Contract with the Network to use them for another 10 years.
