From the best we can determine, the Virgin Mobile unlimited data plan is using the Sprint Pre-Pay foot print - which is basically their non-data roaming areas. Fantastic price if you need access mainly from metro areas.  

However, if you venture outside of metro areas and need access from places that Sprint roams to (which is a lot of the country, btw) - you may want to look into Millenicom's Sprint plan for $69.99/mo. It has a fuzzy 20GB cap per month, but does not have roaming limits (unlike a plan directly with Sprint which has a 300MB roaming limit - even on their grandfathered in 'unlimited' plans).   They also have a Verizon plan for $59.99/mo with a 10GB hard cap.

I'm on  Boost Mobile Unlimited which is basically the same Sprint non-roaming package. Plan has shrinkage and will eventually go down to $35/month. I have run into the limitations of poor connectivity not  being able to roam. I figure the extra money I save is worth it though.

All depends upon how important being online is to you :)

 

For us, it's essential to enable our mobility.
