Virgin Mobile is closing down, here are some similar plans

As of 15 June 2018, Virgin Mobile has ceased to offer mobile phone and mobile broadband plans. What does this mean for you? Contracted plans will be allowed to expire and current users may be offered a new plan through Optus – Virgin Mobile’s parent company.

It may be time to look around for a new mobile broadband provider. Luckily, there are many out there, including a few providers that also use the Optus network. Providers that offer mobile phone plans and mobile broadband plans on the Optus network include:
