Prepaid Data Allowance Clarification
I received the following questions from a visitor to the site via a direct email. I feel that the nature of the questions is so important, that rather than simply reply privately directly to them, that I would post the question here. That way other visitors to the site can benefit from this very good question.
Note that I've submitted this anonymously to ensure the privacy of the person who originally submitted the questions.
Here are the questions (scroll down to view my responses):
I'm looking for a Mifi plan for our home and noticed your listing for Virgin Mobile 3G/4G. It shows a fee of $20 - 30 days (1GB). Is the 1GB for file downloads? I never download any files so does this mean I'd only have to pay $20 per month, and could browse the web and send email as much as I want at no extra charge? Would I be able to watch youtube videos and Netflix movies at no extra charge?
I also see the equipment purchase price is either $99.99 or $149.99? What does $149.99 buy me compared to $99.99? I assume there's a minimal contract period; what is it?
