Virgin Mobile has announced what it claims is the UK’s best value monthly tariff, sprinting in at just £8.50 per month.

Granted, you’re not going to get a top-of-the-range smartphone for that kind of cash, but what you do get is 100 minutes and 100 texts per month on a choice of handsets including the Samsung G600, LG KC550 and Nokia 3120…

Virgin Mobile intros 30p-a-day mobile web tariff

Virgin Mobile has decided that its customers deserve cheaper access to the mobile Internet and has introduced a new tariff for moderate daily surfing.

The “Casual User” tariff, available to both contract and pre-pay customers, costs 30p per day and has a 25MB daily limit (we hope that it’s megabytes, though the press release implies megabits).

This, Virgin claims, is up to three times cheaper than most other networks. In an attempt to prove that, a lengthy and boring comparison chart has been published. I’m not going to mess about drawing you a table of figures, because you’re all more than capable of checking out the competition yourself. Suffice it to say, the deal seems pretty average. Heavy mobile Net users would probably be better off with a higher bandwidth or “unlimited with fair use” tariff, but for those just checking Facebook and a few sport and weather pages, it should suffice.
