Virgin Mobile today introduced new prepaid international calling rates for its US customers, just in time for the Holiday season. From now on, Virgin’s users in the States can call for as low as 2 cents per minute to countries like Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, Japan, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Also, calls made to numbers from Argentina, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, India, Bangladesh, Thailand and South Korea will cost you as low as 5 (five) cents per minute.
To benefit from these rates, you don’t have to sign an annual contract, like you would need to do with a major mobile carrier like AT&T, Verizon or Sprint. Instead, you can choose from Virgin Mobile’s Pay As You Go and Monthly Plan offerings.
Virgin Mobile says that its new international calling plans can make users say goodbye to international calling cards, since they’re more convenient. All you have to do is buy a Top-Up card from any of Virgin’s stores or distributors and you’re ready to call both in and outside the US.
Hit Virgin’s website to find more specific info about the new rates and the full list of countries for which they apply.
