Virgin Mobile adding new family plans

Virgin Mobile USA is sprucing up its wireless plans by adding three new family plan options for postpaid subscribers. The new plans will be available starting tomorrow.

Virgin will launch a new plan called All-In for $175 per month, which has 4,000 anytime minutes to share and includes unlimited messaging and data services. There is also a new $50 A La Carte plan, which includes 600 shared anytime minutes and unlimited mobile-to-mobile minutes. Additionally, the MVNO said it will add 200 shared anytime minutes to its $100 per month A La Carte plan.

The company is touting the plans as flexible options for families. Virgin has focused of late on the value proposition of its plans.

The company had a net subscriber loss of 133,000 in the first quarter and quarterly revenue of $337 million, below Wall Street expectations of $359 million but 4 percent above the year-ago quarter.
