Virgin Mobile Complaint - Broadband2 usually very slow
I got Virgin Mobile Broadband2 for the price, $40/month with unlimited MB and no contract. The price is great but the access can be very slow. It is nice to be able to plug in my USB adapter and connect to the internet without having a wifi hot spot, but the download is really slow. Many times the internet connection will freeze with nothing going out or coming in. Then it will work adequately for a few minutes and then stop or slow down again. Watching news videos can be especially painful since it plays a few seconds and then buffers, sometimes for minutes.
I will stick with them for now, because the no contract and $40/month seems to be a deal. But the slowness of the connect can be quite frustrating.
