New customers signing up to Virgin Mobile can now get unlimited 4G data, calls and texts for €25 a month, regardless of whether or not they get any other service from Virgin Media.
There’s no major commitment required when signing up to the Virgin Mobile Unlimited Plan as it comes with a rolling 30-day contract.
And speaking of “rolling”, Virgin Mobile were so excited about their new deals that they sent us some of Rolling Donut's finest work to celebrate. What a treat!
‘Mates rates’ for existing Virgin Media customers
Existing Virgin Media customers are in for a treat as well.
They can get Virgin Mobile’s unlimited 4G, calls and texts plan for €5 a month for 5 months, again on a 30-day contract. Tweet this fact.
At this rate, they’ll pay €200 for 'unlimited everything' over the course of a year with Virgin Mobile.
Virgin Mobile's story so far
Virgin Mobile was first launched in October 2015 when UPC became Virgin Media, but there were only SIM-only plans available with the provider at the time.
By the following July, Virgin Mobile had clocked up over 100,000 customers and to mark this milestone, they branched out and offered customers 16 different devices to choose from when signing up.
We grabbed a chat with Ronan McEvoy, Head of Virgin Mobile, about what customers can expect from the service last summer, see below!
Paul Farrell, Vice President of Commercial at Virgin Media Ireland, was keen to highlight the competitive price of Virgin Mobile's new deals, saying; “At a time when other providers seem keen on giving their customers less for their mobile phone service, we’re changing the rulebook and giving Virgin customers an unrivalled price for a super unlimited plan helping to eliminate surprises and combat bill shock”.
