I should say beforehand that I do realize I’m biased toward Virgin Mobile, in large part because they are my prepaid provider. I jumped to them from T-Mobile. Knowing that, read on.
Folks who drop by have been looking for news about T-Mobile again, and since the merger is no longer an issue (for now), there has to be something else going on. I can’t tell just what it is yet, but I did stumble on something interesting.
On T-Mobile’s blog, they have an entry talking about their prepaid plans. In the entry, they say:
“Customers don’t have to make compromises with T-Mobile’s Monthly4G. Unlike what our competitors offer, our Monthly4G customers get the best devices, fast nationwide 4G network speeds and affordable service plan prices. “ They say that their prepaid service is a “better way to do prepaid”. Here’s the standard for figuring out their download speed comparison:
“Speed claim based on download speeds on Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ 42 Mbps network vs. competitors’ prepaid phones and networks.”
Now, I can’t say anything about their download speed, and I don’t know enough about devices to compare the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G to anything Virgin Mobile sells. But I can look at prices across companies. Here’s what I see.
